Delivering Rice and Christmas Cheer

The “Beras Natal” (Beras = Rice, Natal = Christmas) flights are something that is unique to Papua. Churches and villages purchase literally tons of rice for their Christmas celebrations and the MAF facility in Wamena has stacks and stacks of rice waiting to go out to villages. As a pilot, sometimes it seems tedious to fly and unload all of this rice. But, when I imagine the festivities that it will contribute to surrounding the celebrations of our Lord’s birth, it becomes a joy. Read more here…

Fleeing for her Life

After a short 15 minute flight, we arrived at A* and met the missionaries there. One of the missionaries quickly pulled Jason aside and told him that, as well as our booked load, they wanted us to put a young woman, Susan*, on the aircraft and take her to Goroka. She had been abused and brutally beaten by her husband over several days and he was intending to kill her. Susan had managed to escape and had found refuge at the mission station. The missionaries had hidden the woman in their house, but now they needed to move her and had arranged a safe house for her in Goroka.

Baka Bible Dedication with SIL in Maridi, South Sudan

The history of the Baka Bible translation project has been filled with numerous struggles and victories. So many people, both missionaries and Baka men and women, have worked tirelessly on the translation efforts. Despite the many interruptions and setbacks over the past thirty plus years, the Baka New Testament and Genesis was printed at the end of 2016 and a Bible Dedication service was planned for March 2017 in Maridi by SIL International. SIL South Sudan director Jackie Marshall-Ringer shares “We are using MAF more and more these days as road travel is now generally quite insecure in South Sudan. We really appreciate MAF’s servant heartedness with the Baka dedication with their helpfulness in arranging charters for our people to get to Maridi and also for the free transportation of the Baka New Testaments from Juba to Maridi which is a special gift to the Baka community and church.”

MAF is well known for flying because that is the bread and butter of the organisation. However behind the scenes is a long list of skilled people who have made sacrifices to see the vision of MAF fulfilled.

Baka Bible Dedication with SIL in Maridi, South Sudan

The history of the Baka Bible translation project has been filled with numerous struggles and victories. So many people, both missionaries and Baka men and women, have worked tirelessly on the translation efforts. Despite the many interruptions and setbacks over the past thirty plus years, the Baka New Testament and Genesis was printed at the end of 2016 and a Bible Dedication service was planned for March 2017 in Maridi by SIL International. SIL South Sudan director Jackie Marshall-Ringer shares “We are using MAF more and more these days as road travel is now generally quite insecure in South Sudan. We really appreciate MAF’s servant heartedness with the Baka dedication with their helpfulness in arranging charters for our people to get to Maridi and also for the free transportation of the Baka New Testaments from Juba to Maridi which is a special gift to the Baka community and church.”

IT Fits, IT Works, It’s IT (Arnhem Land)

MAF is well known for flying because that is the bread and butter of the organisation. However behind the scenes is a long list of skilled people who have made sacrifices to see the vision of MAF fulfilled.

Each person in these roles has a very important place in the bigger picture and vision of MAF.

Delivering Rice and Christmas Cheer

The “Beras Natal” (Beras = Rice, Natal = Christmas) flights are something that is unique to Papua. Churches and villages purchase literally tons of rice for their Christmas celebrations and the MAF facility in Wamena has stacks and stacks of rice waiting to go out to villages. As a pilot, sometimes it seems tedious to fly and unload all of this rice. But, when I imagine the festivities that it will contribute to surrounding the celebrations of our Lord’s birth, it becomes a joy. Read more here…
