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

POTHULA, Prabhu & Christina

Pilot/Digital Technology, Arnhem Land.

Please pray as we continue to look for opportunities to build relationships, disciple and walk along side our fellow Yolngu Christians in their faith.



Pray for those involved in translating the Bible into the local languages in Arnhem Land. Pray that the spiritual fruit of their work will be felt for years to come. Pray for resilience and grace to overcome the challenges. 


AUSTIN, Peter & Avrienne

Joint Managers, Tree Tops Lodge, Cairns. 

Please pray for us as we continue to serve at Tree Tops, especially for the energy to do the hard work often required to keep Tree Tops looking it’s best for our guests. This is made more challenging during hot and humid seasons.



Pray for Christian ministry called Health & Hope, who are rolling out a new education programme in Lailenpi, Myanmar. Health and Hope are our strategic partners in Lailenpi and have played a significant role in the new airstrip being built there. Pray for the safety and protection of all the leaders, staff and volunteers.



Thank God for all of our volunteers who assist us in New Zealand in practical ways. Pray that God will honour them for their hard work and commitment. Pray for more volunteers, especially for those with a heart to help us prepare for next year’s 75th Anniversary celebration.



We currently have a critical need for engineers. Pray for those involved in recruitment in MAF New Zealand as they work on campaigns to let people know about the vacancies, and that people will hear the call of God. 


McINTOSH, Colin & Rosemary

MAFI Maintenance Support Specialist–Turbine Aircraft, NZ based.

A crucial approval needed to complete the process of importing of the new Cessna Caravan into the Bangladesh programme has turned into a much more complicated process. Continue to pray for good relationships with—and a favourable outcome from—the various departments and agencies involved so that the aircraft can begin serving the people of Bangladesh.
