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

McINTOSH, Colin & Rosemary

MAFI Maintenance Support Specialist–Turbine Aircraft, NZ based.

Pray for Colin, who has not been able to travel to fulfill his responsibilities due to  the COVID-19 pandemic. Pray travel restrictions will be relaxed soon so that he will be able to travel overseas again in the future.


NICOL, William & Meryl

Matthew. MAFI Aviation Director, NZ based.

William, Meryl and Matthew spent some time in Christchurch during the October holidays to catch up with William's parents who are now in their early 90s. Please pray for them, as memory issues may mean that they will need to be transferred to a higher level of care, which will be disorientating for them. Meryl's Mum is also in her early 90's and based in Hamilton. Pray for Meryl as she supports her. 



Pilot, Timor-Leste. (Temporary Deputy Programme Manager).

At the end of my time as a relief pilot in Timor-Leste I will return to New Zealand  via Gove, packing up my possessions on the way. I hope to be back and clear  of quarantine by the start of February. Please pray for me during this period of many changes and transitions.


HUNT, Benji & Jess

Elliott. Aircraft Engineer, PNG.

We are praising God for how well Elliott has settled into school, the PNG culture and for the confidence he has developed this past year. This is such an answer to prayer!


MATHEWS, Ken & Erica

Regional Safety Manager, NZ based.

Please pray that Ken will continue to have a meaningful impact in his role as the Regional Safety Manager. Pray too for wisdom as he coaches Safety staff in PNG.


HARDING, Bill & Angela

International Development Director, Cairns.

Please pray for Angela who is delivering an alcohol and drug programme to men on parole at the Salvation Army Corps. on the Tablelands from 7-10 December. Please pray for everyones safety and for real engagement from those taking part. Pray for creativity as Bill adapts to not being able to travel to Asia due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please also pray that the aeroplane and trailer for a static display in the Philippines will be completed by the end of the year. 



Pilot/Safety Manager, Kenya.

Please pray for all the MAF Kenya staff as they take some time off over Christmas to relax and re-energize for the next season.
