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

MILES, Doug & Yvonne

Operations Manager, PNG.

Not too long ago Yvonne returned to New Zealand for the funeral of our friend’s  31 year-old son, who was tragically killed by a train. Please pray for wisdom for Yvonne in the months ahead and for on-going healing for the family from this sad incident.


McINTOSH, Colin & Rosemary

MAFI Maintenance Support Specialist turbine Aircraft, NZ based.

Please continue to pray for the team in Bangladesh as they work with the local officials to get the required clearances and approvals so that their new Cessna Caravan can begin flight operations.


WATSON, Jonny & Glenys

Katie, Alana, Danielle and Lucy. Pilot, PNG. 

Please pray that the government of PNG will fund the required safety improvements for rural airstrips, especially now that MAF has reduced the number of airstrips they  fly to for safety reasons. Pray also that the communities in PNG will put their trust in our gracious God throughout. 



Please pray for the MAF finance teams as they work on reforecasting our budgets in response to the impact of coronavirus. Pray for wisdom for the senior leadership teams as they seek to address the issues we face.



Please continue to pray for those impacted by travel and border restrictions, both for staff who are unable to return to their home country and for those who can't get back into the country where they serve with MAF.



IT Support Officer, Cairns.

Pray for our Information Technology team as they address additional demands and try to deliver projects and initiatives on time, while facing challenges from the pandemic.


HASTIE, Kerry & Marie

Jesse, Ethan and Johanna. Quality and Safety Manager, Mareeba.

Please pray that Jo will be able to sit her P licence soon (NZ restricted). This will help in her getting a job. Pray for Marie's parents as their health declines. Pray Marie will be able to visit them soon.
