Feil, John and Tracey

Feil, John and Tracey

John and Tracey Feil, who are from Ampthill in Bedfordshire, are serving in South Sudan. Until recently, John was a chemistry teacher with a passion of flying; this year, he took up the role of Operations Manager for MAF in Juba.


We are John and Tracey Feil from Ampthill in Bedfordshire, where we both belong to Ampthill Baptist Church. We both came to know Christ as teenagers. Our paths met through church 18 years ago. John grew up in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. After studying biology at Queen Mary’s, London and completing a Ph.D. at Leeds University, he worked as an IT project manager. Later, John returned to science as a secondary school teacher. Tracey, originally from the North of England, is an experienced primary teacher who spent four years living and teaching in Malawi before returning to Ampthill and marrying John, who has three children. Together, we moved to Uganda with the children and both taught at the school our children attended. After returning to the UK for our eldest to do his A levels, John began to pursue his life-long passion – to learn to fly. 

Together we enjoy camping, canoeing and time with family and friends. John is a keen cyclist whilst Tracey loves a good book and keeping sketchbooks. With our youngest daughter now at university, John’s passion for flight and the persistent but gentle directing of God, led us to pursue a calling to work for MAF. To our surprise and through God’s wisdom, we are now in Juba, South Sudan where John is serving as operations manager and Tracey hopes to use her skills and experience in education. We look forward to sharing our next chapter with you.
