Colin has been helping prepare some of the maintenance manuals for the Cessna Caravan aircraft that was purchased for the MAF Liberia programme in West Africa. Please pray these manuals will be approved  by the US Federal Aviation Authority in a timely manner. 



Praise God for the two new electrician trainee officers that have joined the MAF Tech Services team. Pray that they adjust quickly to life in PNG and settle into their new roles.

Pray for excellent applicants for the role of MAF India Development Manager. Pray that God will bring forward the right person for this key role for MAF India’s future.



Pilot, South Sudan. 

Praise that the Kenyan Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) licence finally arrived. It was a four-month wait for it to be issued, but we can now get on with training in South Sudan, which will prepare me and others to be able to fly in solo operations.
