The Story

Ben and Helen met at their home church in Brisbane. They have two primary school aged children. Ben’s background is in Information Technology, Helen is an Occupational Therapist and has also studied at Bible College. Ben and Helen have a strong affinity with MAF; Ben has always had an interest in aviation and Helen’s father was a MAF pilot.

Over the past few years Ben and Helen have sensed God’s leading to serve with MAF. In preparation for this Ben studied at Bible College in 2016. The family moved to Mareeba while Ben undertook flight training with MAF, which he completed in April 2019.

In 2019 the Starrs moved to Arnhem Land and are now serving the Yolngu people. They live in one of the indigenous communities. Ben serves as a pilot in the MAF program while Helen home schools the children and seeks to use her Occupational Therapy skills in the community.

Ben and Helen have a heart to serve people living in remote communities and to share Christ’s love with them.

What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8b
