Ryan and Siobhain

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.
– Psalm 139:9-10

Ryan grew up in Alberta in a strong Christian family. After High School, Ryan went to Prairie Bible College where he earned his pilot’s licence. Following God’s leading in 2008, Ryan joined MAF, and worked with Flying Mission Services flying medevacs for 2 years in Botswana. After returning to Canada, Ryan spent 2 years flying in northern Alberta.

In 2013 God reaffirmed Ryan’s calling to work with MAF and he was sent to Papua New Guinea in 2016.

Siobhain was raised in military communities in England and Germany. After University she joined the Royal Air Force, working in logistics and airport management in London, Scotland and the Falkland Islands.

After leaving the RAF in 2013, God led her to MAF. The application process gave her an amazing opportunity to deepen her faith in unforeseen ways. She has been in Papua New Guinea since 2014 as the Ground Operations Manager. Siobhain knows God has equipped her for this challenging role.

Ryan and Siobhain met in PNG shortly after Ryan’s arrival in 2016. After an 8 month courtship, Ryan proposed during a visit from both of their parents, and they were married in England in July 2017.

MAF needs couples like Ryan and Siobhain who are prepared and willing to serve the needs of the poor in Papua New Guinea. Consider contributing to the important work they are helping to make possible with MAF.
