Serving in Cairns
* This donation is tax deductible
Why are some donations tax deductible and others not?
Gifts or sponsorship to support the relief work of MAF International (ABN 32 004 260 860) in Australia, made through the MAF Aid Fund (ABN 49 498 842 455), are tax deductible.
Not tax deductible
Tax deductibility on donations is only allowable by the Australian Tax Office in respect of approved relief and development activities. For this reason, tax deductibility is not available for sponsorship of staff working for ACMA (Australian Centre for Mission Aviation), CRMF, MAF Canada, MAF USA and MAF Australia (Sydney), nor for support of evangelistic outreach and other non-qualifying activities. Donations to CRMF are treated as 'non-development' and do not qualify for tax deductibility.
Amanda became a Christian in 1994 and felt prompted by God to go to the mission field during her years at university. Her response was, “God I love you but I will NEVER become a missionary and I will NEVER leave Northern Ireland.”
God had other plans!
In 2009 she immigrated to Australia and after some life changing events in 2014 she felt God calling her to serve Him on the mission field, using her qualifications as a Chartered Accountant. She became the finance manager for MAF Arnhem Land and lived in Arnhem Land for 2.5 years. She moved to Cairns in 2018 and currently undertakes various financial projects while still working as the finance manager for Arnhem Land.
Amanda’s passion is to use her financial skills and life experience to reach out to others and show God’s amazing love and promise never to leave us or forsake us.
For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Jeremiah 29:11
