Over the past few years we have been listening to many different biographies, including biographies of missionaries. Some of these have included Betty Greene who was a WASP during WWII and went on to help found what became Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) as well as Nate Saint who was an MAF pilot in Ecuador and was martyred while trying to bring the life changing message of the forgiveness found in Jesus. Nate’s sister, Rachel, and Elisabeth Elliott (wife of one of the five men martyred) later went to live with the tribe and see the transformation Christ brought to the Waodoni people.
MAF headquarters is now located in Nampa, ID so we thought it would be fun to get a tour and see how MAF works. We brought along one Great-Grandma, both Grandmas, an auntie and three cousins. MAF also works in PNG and helps with flights in and out of places that take days to hike.
