GO ON A SHORT TERM OVERSEAS EXPERIENCE WITH MAF!

Be Part of Something Bigger!

On a short-term overseas experience with MAF you will gain experience in living in a developing nation. Find out if God is calling you into long-term Christian mission work! Add some “real world” overseas work experience to your CV. Use your skills to enhance and support the ongoing work of MAF in one of our vital overseas programmes.

This experience will provide you with the opportunity to explore God’s calling on your life by serving in a programme as a volunteer. 

This is exactly what Malcolm and Matt (photo) did last November when they volunteered at the MAF aircraft maintenance facility at Mareeba in northern Australia. They had a great time, explored possibly roles with MAF in the future and used their backgrounds to help out where needed.
