Meagan & Zaka, Matthew, Japheth, Hannah, & Nthabiseng

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)

Melvin & Kari Peters have served with Mission Aviation Fellowship since 2000. They were in Lesotho until 2015 where they provided a Flying Doctor Service to those living in isolation. In 2015 they moved to northern Kenya to open up a new sub-base in Marsabit County, an isolated area with critical humanitarian need, particularly in the refugee camps along the borders of South Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia.

In 2019 they returned to Canada to invest their years of field experience in new roles working with the Recruiting/Operations and Development Departments of MAFC.

As seasoned missionaries, Melvin and Kari will bring valuable insight to potential recruits as they connect with pilots, maintenance engineers, teachers, IT specialists and other people interested in serving with MAF.

Their many years of leading and establishing programs will ensure that they are well equipped to investigate and evaluate opportunities for MAF to serve in northern Canada, and as part of the Development team, they will be sharing with potential supporters how MAF continues to pursue its mission and vision of transformation through Christ.

Please continue to pray for Melvin, Kari & Nthabiseng as they take on this new challenge in Canada and continue serving through Mission Aviation Fellowship. Please also pray for Matthew, Meagan (Zaka), Hannah, & Japheth who reside in Canada and the US.

MAF needs couples like Melvin and Kari who are prepared and willing to serve the needs of the poor in Kenya. Consider contributing to the important work they are helping to make possible with MAF.
