This section is updated weekly with new prayer items from our field workers.


Please pray for the MAF team down at Wanaka for the “Warbirds Over Wanaka” airshow. Pray for lots of good connections and opportunities to meet with potential staff. Pray that God draws the right people to us.


NICHOLLS, Kevin & Angela

Regional Quality Manager, Cairns.

Please pray for Kevin as he hands over a number of his responsibilities to the new Programme Quality Managers. Please pray that the handover goes well.



Give thanks for the progress being made on the new hangar for Liberia. The main structure is now being built and taking shape! Pray that the work will continue with no major setbacks.



Remote Accountant (Small Programmes). NZ based.

Give thanks for the 336 medevacs which were safely flown by MAF in Timor-Leste during 2019. A large proportion of our work there is for the Ministry of Health. However the MOU has expired and there have been delays in renewing it which is causing problems with visas for our staff. Please join with the team in praying for the speedy processing of this important document.


MATHEWS, Ken & Erica

Regional Safety Manager, NZ based.

Please pray for the plans and travel arrangements for this coming year. Pray that God will lead us through 2020. Praise God with us for the good break we had over the summer period.


HIGHAM, Frank & Jenny

Aircraft Engineer, short term assignments in Arnhem Land, NZ based.

Please pray that permanent engineers will soon join the team. Pray too for ongoing outreaches to the Yolngu in the homelands and Yirrkala. Prayer for preparation for the Yolngu for the Jesus Crusade, which will be held in Yirrkala in July.


SIM, Godfrey & Glen

Church and Community Partnership Manager, PNG.

The large public event scheduled to take place  in Wewak is approaching. There are also a number of projects and partnerships “in progress”. Pray for shared vision between MAF and various partners and agencies (Govt, NGO, and Churches), strong commitment to the agreements and plans, and God’s provision of finance and resources to enable them to happen.
