Transformation

MAF’s vision is simple: to see isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name. Here’s a small snapshot of it taking place in PNG.

Transform Lives With Your Prayer

From the very beginning MAF’s ministry has depended on committed supporters upholding our staff and everything we do in prayer. After 70 years we remain reliant on prayer. The risks of flying and struggles of living in some of the world’s most undeveloped, insecure and challenging environments highlight our need for God’s protection as well as His provision.

Transform Lives With Your Time

MAF has an incredible story to tell, a story of Hope, Adventure, Rescue and Transformation. You can become part of this story wherever you are and whatever your circumstances, as a volunteer. For MAF to be able to reach the unreached we need volunteers to reach Christians in Asia, to tell them about our ministry and engage them in the prayer, missionary recruitment and financial support. We need volunteers to help spread the word about MAF in their family, church and network of influence. Volunteers receive digital and other material directly from MAF, they ensure their churches get up-to-date news and film clips about MAF ministry or an opportunity to hear a MAF speaker, they encourage others and they may help with promotional events.

Transform Lives With Your Career

Perhaps you or someone you know could be one of the qualified pilots, engineers, IT, finance and other Christian specialists whom MAF urgently needs to serve as missionaries. As MAF international staff, you contribute to vital operations that overcome barriers, the elements, the clock and the odds in very challenging places. The reward is knowing that your involvement plays a part in the life-changing transformation of isolated people. Being used by God in this way in your career is an incomparable blessing. International staff raise sponsorship towards their cost and are involved in promotions in churches, leadership of prayer and bible studies and other mission activities in their daily work, so we are looking for people of faith with spiritual maturity to be members of our multinational interdenominational team. We invite you to consider using your gifts and abilities to serve God with us. As international staff you would be welcomed into a warm and supportive family of 1,400 staff from many different denominations and nations. If you sense God is calling you into service with MAF please contact us at maf-singapore@maf.org to receive an enquiry pack with details of requirements and recruitment processes.

Physical Transformation

The description ‘remote’ somehow seems like an understatement for the community at Maramuni. Perched on the top of a mountain in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, the small community, scattered around the grass airstrip, seems so far from the rest of the world. They are completely cut off up here. There is no electricity, so no TV, no telephone and no radio. There are no connecting roads either. As Pilot Martin Koehler explains, many of the people here have not even seen a car. Teacher Michael Kaupa is a relatively new addition to Maramuni. Arriving in early 2014, he and another teacher were tasked with establishing a new school for the community. It was not easy to build a school here. The place was covered in long grass. Using spades and bush knives, they cleared the area by hand to allow for a building. Michael loves MAF. He smiles widely when he talks about his new school building, “Everything you see here, from the roofing iron down to the smallest nail came in on an MAF plane”. He goes on to explain that in fact everything that cannot be grown in the village, is flown in – everything. Their medicines, their manufactured foods (like rice and tinned fish), the school desks, chairs, books, pencils, you get the point. physicalTransformation2 Right now, the community is thriving. Michael explains that this village has had a very violent history, one of infighting and tribal conflict. But this new school, situated on a hill above the airstrip, has brought great hope and peace to the area. They have plans to make it a boarding school – where students from outskirts can come and learn too. The transformation brought about through the partnership with MAF is one greatly treasured by the community. They have come to love Pilot Martin Koehler. Michael jokes, “If he does die out here, we want to have his graveyard here – we don’t want to send him home!... He has been very helpful to the people of Maramuni, not just this school, but for the whole community.”
