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

McINTOSH, Colin & Rosemary

MAFI Maintenance Support Specialist–Turbine Aircraft, NZ based.

Please pray for the maintenance team in Mareeba as they work on the new Cessna C208 destined for PNG. It will facilitate health patrol flights to the remote regions. This aircraft was recently flown to Australia and is undergoing additional modifications to gain its Certificate of Airworthiness prior to beginning operations in PNG.



Pray for the MAF South Sudan team as they embark on an airstrip review. Pray for wisdom for the team as they carry out this important task.



Pilot/Safety Manager, Kenya.

Pray for the Kenya team as various key staff members are on overdue Home Assignments. Pray for them as they travel, and pray for the Operations back in Nairobi that there is good continuity and people have the capacity to help out where is needed.


MATHEWS, Ken & Erica

Regional Safety Manager, NZ based. 

Please pray for my current trip to Cairns to induct and hand over to my replacement. Pray that my (and Erica’s) travel plans would be uninterrupted and COVID-free, and that the handover will go well.



In spite of recent unrest in East Democratic Republic of the Congo (EDRC), the MAF Uganda team are still able to provide linked flights to Bunia. Praise God this service can continue—and for the safety of the MAF staff serving there.


MILES, Doug & Yvonne

Deputy Country Director, PNG.

Yvonne is involved with a group of immigrant ladies living in Cairns, assisting with their learning the English language and general fellowship support. Pray for opportunities for witness.


NICOL, William & Meryl

Matthew. NZ based.

Pray for William as he goes through the process of renewing his pilot medicals for New Zealand and Australia. This is with the goal of providing some pilot training resources to some of MAF’s programmes.
