An impactful moment you've had at maf
We recently had some missionary friends over for lunch that work and serve up in Lichinga, North Western Mozambique. As they were leaving, Alfred reminded me of a phone call I made to him in 2001 when I was a rookie pilot and hadn't met them yet. He had originally asked us for a quote to fly up into Mozambiqu on a “look see” visit to try ascertain the Lords leading in their lives. The quote was way out of his budget, but a few weeks later I had a freebie place on the aircraft when I was hauling freight up to Northern Mozambique, and I called him and apparently said, “Hey Alfred, if you can’t afford this price, then you clearly don’t want to serve the Lord in Mozambique.” Now 13 years later he and his wife Belinda are still friends of ours and they have been faithfully serving the Lord in Mozambique since about 2003. It’s kind of awesome to think how that phone call was part of what led to them serving the Lord in an amazing way in frontier type ministry with an unreached people group. Very humbling.

What you love most about working for MAF
After 14 years of flying on 7 different programmes and in 15 different African countries, for me it's still about the impact MAF can have when it serves those who are in remote locations, and who would not otherwise be easily reached and served.
A lonely missionary in the bush needing car parts so he can carry on his ministry and for me just to be someone from the “outside” that he can chat to; flying in very basic medicines to a remote clinic where no medicines are available; a medivac of someone who is gravely ill; food for people who are facing serious hunger and malnutrition; helping refugees get back on their feet again; flying a team who drill water wells for thirsty people; evacuating scared people from conflict areas; building a clinic; flying in and out an evangelist team from a remote area and hearing their amazing stories of how the Lord moved in mighty ways; offloading teaching materials to a Bible school in the bush and just *kuiering for a few hours with the South African missionary staff; sneaking some special foodstuffs into my overnight bag to treat a missionary whom I know just cannot get that food where they live and serve, and it’s a real sacrifice for them to go without. Sharing the magic of flight with passengers who have longed to be pilots, but just never could be.
*kuiering is the South African word for visiting

"All these people are my hero’s, I couldn't do what they do, and I am privileged to have been able to support them and help them minister in the way they have been led by the Lord to serve."

An impactful moment you've had at MAF 

One day we flew coffee from a bush strip to Goroka. We did 7 loads from their strip back to Goroka, which was about 13 tonnes of coffee. When we landed after the last sector there were quite a few people at the MAF base from their village sorting out the coffee and arranging to get it sold on town. They were so happy that we had managed to get so much coffee out that they all started cheering. For them this meant that they would get some income into the village and so was a big thing for them.

What you love most about working for MAF

We love working for MAF because they look after us as a family. It isn’t just Brad working for MAF, but rather US working for MAF as a family. In terms of the flying, or the actual work, the variety is great. Also, it is awesome to be able to use your passion and skills to impact people and to serve God using the gifts He has given us.
