The speaker will be
Revd Andrew Fothergill,
who will talk about the
who fly medical, relief and life-transforming help to vulnerable people in hard-to-reach places
In today’s ‘connected world’, the irony is that never have so many people been so isolated. Many remote communities have never heard the Gospel and are living in spiritual darkness.
If a person has a medical emergency and the nearest hospital is a few days walk or an uncomfortable drive on rough roads, their prognosis is poor.
When natural disasters, conflict or famine strike hard-to-reach places, an aircraft may be the only safe way to reach the affected areas.
“At MAF, we believe nothing should stop people from receiving the love of God and the essentials of life – no matter how remote they are. Our vision is to see ‘isolated people physically and spiritually transformed in Christ’s name.’ We believe that everyone deserves a chance to experience the love of Jesus Christ. We use aviation and technology, because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people with Christ’s love.“
