Michael and Naomi have always felt God’s call on their lives to serve Him. The Bible explicitly instructs all followers of Christ to reach out and help the marginalised and vulnerable and God has been working to prepare and enable them to do just that.
As an aspiring second generation MAF pilot, Michael has always been fascinated by aviation and the ways in which it can be used to serve people in need. Growing up in Arnhem Land and Indonesia gave him an insight into the physical and, more importantly, spiritual poverty that exists in the world.
Naomi grew up in Alice Springs and has a heart for mission. She completed a Bachelor of Education in 2019, with a desire to one day invest in the lives of children from other cultures. Whether the journey takes her into rural Australia or other parts of the world, her passion is driven by the love God has for us.
With gifts they have both been given, Michael and Naomi believe that there is no higher calling than using these gifts to bring Jesus’ message of love and hope wherever they can. They are currently based in Mareeba as Michael finishes his commercial flight training while Naomi teaches a Year 5/6 class at Jubilee Christian College.
