At MAF, we believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. Our vision is 'to see isolated people changed by the love of Christ.' We use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people in need.
In today's 'connected world', the irony is that never have so many people been so isolated. Many remote communities have never heard the Gospel and are living in spiritual darkness.
If a person has a medical emergency and the nearest hospital is a few days walk or an uncomfortable drive on rough roads, their prognosis is poor.
When natural disasters, conflict or famine strike hard-to-reach places, an aircraft may be the only safe way to reach the people on the ground.
For over 75 years, MAF has been flying light aircraft over jungles, mountains, swamps and deserts. We enable more than 2,000 aid, development and mission organisations to bring medical care, emergency relief, long-term development and Christian hope to thousands of communities.
Every four minutes an MAF plane is taking off or landing somewhere in the world to help eliminate the barriers to physical and spiritual transformation. Enabling partners is at the core of what we do and you can help make it possible.
The Lord has forgiven
On 25 September 1968, American missionaries Phil Masters and Stan Dale were hiking in Papua when they were ambushed and cannibalised by warriors of the Southern Yali.
Incredibly, Phyliss Masters – Phil’s wife – continued sharing God’s love with indigenous tribes for another 20 years, setting up a women and children’s ministry.
She told them, ‘The Lord has forgiven me for my sin and, in turn, I forgive you.’
And, in August 2020, MAF brought the Good News to the Southern Yali in their own tongue by flying an order of more than 2,500 reprinted Bibles to remote villages.
