A new arrival in Indonesia

A new arrival in Indonesia

A flight in Papua, Indonesia, departed its destination with six passengers and landed with seven, after a passenger gave birth mid-flight!

The flight on 6 May flown by pilot Dennis Bergstrazer in Papua Indonesia departed from Ilaga, a small farming community located in a mountain valley 2,286 metres above sea level, with a woman in labour accompanied by a nurse.

By the time they arrived at the coastal town of Timika, the mother, Arida had delivered a beautiful baby boy, helped safely into the world by Sister Yunita. The baby was carefully lifted from the plane into a waiting MAF car and Arida walked from the plane like nothing had happened!

Lift up parents Arida and Kerinus and the hundreds of families MAF flies to hospital every year. Pray a special blessing their little son who they have named Dennis MAF Wonda!
