Serving in South Sudan
* 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.
I was born in the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal to Northern Irish missionary parents. It was there that a heart for mission and a life of adventure was born in me. Witnessing first-hand the impact of holistic Gospel ministry, I saw the great privilege of sharing with people, especially those in rural areas. I also saw the need for access to these areas to make this ministry possible.
After 5 years in Northern Ireland my family returned to Nepal when I was 12 and I was already considering a career in aviation through the RAF. A few years later, several MAF pilots and managers came to Kathmandu to look into setting up an MAF programme in Nepal. Once the MAF pilot’s showed me pictures and videos of MAF’s work, I knew that this was what God wanted me to do. MAF combined perfectly my interest in aviation, heart to serve people and work in remote areas worldwide.
From here, I completed my A-levels at boarding school in southern India before moving to Melbourne, Australia, to study a diploma of Mission Aviation. I studied for 5 years, doing a year at Bible College, aircraft maintenance and finally flight training. I really feel God has designed and grown me for serving. Every step of my training has encouraged me more than I could have dreamed of to be able to serve God in MAF.
