Alex was born in Germany and moved to Canada at the age of 6. He grew up in Delta, BC and started working in aviation in 2005 as an aircraft mechanic for a local flying school. His interest in missions started after reading a flyer about MAF. A year later, he headed overseas as a mechanic on a year and a half assignment to Central Asia with a MAF affiliate. As he was returning to Canada, he was approached about going to Asia to fill in as an aviation mechanic there for a few months.
April grew up in southern Ontario, Canada and became interested in mission aviation when a missions pilot shared about the ministry at a local church. She was put in touch with MAF and after completing her aviation training at Prairie Bible College, she joined the flight instructing staff at the college. In 2012, April was accepted with MAF Canada as a pilot & flight instructor and was assigned to a partner organization in Asia. She served 3 years there as the chief flight instructor.
Alex and April met in Asia and were married in Canada in 2016. Alex has since become an IT specialist with MAF Canada and is responsible for supporting the MAF Canada office, Angola and Prairie Aviation Training Centre in their technical needs. April is enjoying flight instructing at Prairie Aviation Training Centre where she not only teaches students how to fly, but more importantly challenges and encourages students in their walk with the Lord.
Alex and April have enjoyed serving the Lord with MAF Canada and look forward to many more years.
Please prayerfully consider partnering with Alex and April as they serve with MAF Canada.
