Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
– Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

The Barber family has been working with MAF in Madagascar since January 2012, where Rob serves as the Chief Maintenance Specialist at the MAF Hangar in the capital city, Antananarivo, keeping two aircraft flight ready, as well as overseeing a vehicle maintenance garage. Rob completed his engineer training at BCIT in Vancouver in 2004 and has been working on aircraft ever since – from light Cessnas to large C130 Hercules!

From an early age Rob knew he wanted to maintain aircraft and was encouraged toward those goals by his parents. His passion to use his skills to serve the Lord through MAF, furthering Christ’s Kingdom remains strong as he serves in Madagascar.

Karina was raised on BC’s Vancouver Island. her desire to serve the Lord was developed at an early age. She spent a few years teaching piano lessons and also graduated with a certificate in office administration. In addition to raising and homeschooling their four children, Faith, Wesley, Joyanne, and Calvin, Karina also supports and encourages the homeschooling community in Madagascar among the other missionary wives and mothers.
