'I recently came out of an early church service in Mbeya and a bright-faced young man called Tumaini from Mbulu came up to me. We’d flown together once with MAF pilot Markus Riegert – either to or from Haydom. 'Tumaini’s studying civil engineering, but is very drawn to becoming a pilot somehow. He is the son of a former principal of the WAMA Bible School at Mbulu, and has done a lot of building work at Haydom.
'Out of our nice reunion came a wonderful opportunity to teach the Christian students (90% men) at Mbeya Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), which is an enormous mission field of 5,000 or so students, a field I’d quite overlooked.
