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

MATHEWS, Ken & Erica

Regional Safety Manager, NZ based. 

Praise that my three weeks in Cairns from 17 June-7 July, attending meetings and running a Quality Safety conference for staff from the Asia/Pacific region, went really well and achieved everything I hoped it would!



Please pray for volunteers to work alongside our small MAF team in New Zealand so we can effectively use the resources we have. Please pray specifically for a motivated volunteer to help with upcoming promotional events, including the 75th Celebration of MAF’s Flying for Life which will take place in May 2020.



Pilot, Arnhem Land. 

Please pray for the One New Man rally run by Yolngu for Jesus that is taking place on the 19-21st July in Yirrkala. Please pray not only for souls to turn to Jesus, but also for them to be followed up and discipled.



The MAFI Quality, Safety & Security team give thanks for the best quality and safety reporting rate ever! Give thanks for all the work that goes on to keep our operations safe, remembering that ultimately it is God on whom we depend.
