Covid-19: MAF Response and Prayer Points
MAF has been serving isolated communities around the world for 75 years. Our vision is to see isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name and with Covid-19 reaching almost every country in the world, many people are experiencing isolation in a new way.
MAF remains committed to serving isolated communities, but at this time we are focused on ensuring we don’t carry the virus into remote areas. Our teams have remained in their programmes; they are following government advice and working with partners and governments to meet needs where possible. We have seen flight requests reduce and we expect this to continue in the next few weeks. However, we are working to ensure we are ready to fly again when it is safe and possible to do so.
Our staff, like you, are facing the challenges that come with social distancing and self-isolating. Please pray for them as they deal with this. We ask that you also pray for our partners and the people in the countries where we work: many will not have the facilities or financial security to self-isolate or practice social distancing and many health care systems will not be able to cope should an outbreak occur. Pray particularly for the many refugees in camps around the world.
This year is going to be incredibly difficult for so many people across the globe. We want to assure you that we are in position to continue sharing God’s love to isolated communities in remote places, as we have been for 75 years. Thank you for your ongoing support during this time, you are a vital part of the MAF family. We are praying for you, and how the current situation is impacting your life too.
