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

NICOL, William & Meryl

Matthew. MAFI Strategic Advisor, NZ based. 

Praise for all of the amazing work taking place around the world through MAF each day. Pray for safety during all the take offs and landings from some very challenging airstrips. Finally, please pray for more lives to be touched and communities transformed in Jesus’ name.


HUNT, Benji & Jess

Elliott. Engineering Supervisor, PNG. 

This month we farewell our neighbours as they retire back to their home country after almost 30 years of service! This means that after just three years of being in PNG, we become the seniors of our particular compound! Please pray that we will be a blessing in the lives of our compound families, for unity, contentment and fellowship as we navigate the constantly changing dynamics of daily compound life.



Please pray for the MAF  NZ team as we take a little time to over the next weeks review our strategy. It’s good every now and then to step back and make sure we are fulfilling the plans and goals that we have set for the next few years. Pray that He will help us make the best use of our time and resources. 


DENNIS, Judi & Steve

Office Manager, Arnhem Land. 

As the post COVID-19 world opens up we have several new team members accepted. Pray for them as they are processed and join our team. Pray for me as I make arrangements well in advance for those visiting the programme, that God will bless their time in Arnhem Land. 



Please pray for the Board meeting and Annual General Meeting taking place today. Pray that everything will fit together under the guidance and direction of the Lord. Pray for wise decisions by the Board and a wonderful evening together as we gather to pray and hear 
the latest stories from MAF worldwide.


CAMPBELL, Andy & Sharon

Maintenance Controller, PNG. 

Please pray that God will continue to use us here in PNG. Pray that we will know when to speak and when to listen so that God can use our words to bring life to those we interact with every day.


WATSON, Jonny & Glenys

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

Praise the Lord for answered prayer in that a full supply of teachers has been confirmed for our local mission school, Numonohi Christian Academy, for the coming school year beginning in August. This means that all our children will be able to attend. Give thanks for the support we have received via Te Kura (the New Zealand Correspondence School) while we’ve had our girls at home over the past two years.
