Before you leave Papua New Guinea

and take off for your final destination…

As you get ready to fly, you might have your travelling essentials close to hand. But hop on an MAF flight in PNG and you may need to strip back on home comforts to give way for life-saving cargo. Here’s what you might find in the luggage hold:

Find out more about MAF’s box of blessings, the most precious cargo of all!

When pilots have spare room on the aircraft, they take a ‘Bible box’ – a toolbox filled with Tok Pisin translations of the Bible, concordances, audio Bibles and much more.

Weighing approximately 10kg, these little boxes of Good News are in such high demand that a pilot can sell out of all the Bibles almost instantly at the first destination. People walk for miles to obtain their own precious copy. During 2021, MAF sold more than 10,600 Bibles in remote communities across PNG.

When Pastor Matthew Kolo started to go blind, he feared he’d never be able to access the Bible again. MAF bought him a solar powered audio Bible and taught him how to use it – now Pastor Kolo can enjoy the life-giving scripture every day.

NB: MAF Technologies PNG was previously known as CRMF in PNG. This film was shot in 2019 before the pandemic.
