Only when the plane comes

You shield your eyes against the glare of the blazing mid-morning sun, darting them back and forth, scanning the horizon, searching for the source of the sound as it echoes across the plain…

Then it appears. A tiny dot at first, but growing larger with every passing moment.

It’s the MAF plane.

“Right on time. Just in time.”

  • Maybe it’s a regular weekly flight bringing medical supplies to restock a local village clinic, or Bibles translated into your language for the very first time…
  • Maybe it’s bringing building supplies for the new school, or replacement parts for a broken well…
  • Or maybe it’s transporting a national pastor to provide encouragement and discipleship to a remote congregation…

Whatever the reason, to countless thousands of families living in more than 30 countries around the world, planes from Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF), an international, Christian, humanitarian, relief and development organization, are anticipated and welcome.
