Serving in Arnhem Land
* 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.
Matt had a passion for aviation since he could talk. By flying with MAF, God combined Matt’s conviction to serve those in need with his love for aviation.
Shannon completed her secondary education training, and worked as a teacher from 2005, passionately teaching secondary students to live healthy, happy lives.
Matt and Shannon married in 2008 and have three children, Annaliese (2010), Zachary (2013) and Zoe (2015).
With a combined vision and willingness to serve, they began to working with MAF in Arnhem land, Australia in 2012, living and serving in the remote community of Gapuwiyak. Opportunities for fellowship, bible studies, playgroups, preschool, and hunting have enabled Matthew and Shannon to share their lives and faith with the Yolngu people.
Now living in Nhulunbuy, Matthew’s work involves flying local Yolngu people, teachers, nurses, government staff and others to locations across remote Arnhem land. Shannon continues to take opportunities to serve as they appear.
