We hope you enjoyed the 24 days of globe-trotting adventures and have enjoyed learning about the countries we serve in, feel inspired after reading the incredible stories from the people we have helped, and had fun creating some of the crafts and recipes each day!
We also hope you had a brilliant Christmas and a happy New Year.
To continue learning more about our life-changing work, why not sign up for our Discovery Air Pass if you haven't already?
The pass will take you on a virtual journey to a few of the countries we serve in over the course of a year, giving you more detailed information about why we serve in the countries we do, and how you can help us support some of the worlds’ most physically and spiritually isolated people.
You can also stay up-to-date with the latest stories and events from MAF UK on our website and via our social media channels, check out the links at the bottom of this page.
In the meantime, thanks very much and all the best for this year ahead!
Parents, teachers and students all appreciate a break from the school run over Christmas! But in the Aboriginal homelands of Northern Australia, lots of pupils just love the opportunity to go to school in their traditional culture.
A student at Gäwa Christian School said, ‘I like that it’s a Christian school. I’ve never been to a Christian school before. I didn’t know about the Bible much. Here you get to learn about Jesus more and other heavenly stuff. Jesus saves us, He can help people and do miracles.’
One of the teachers called Wendy said, ‘Yolŋu and Balanda help each other to learn well and make children strong, knowing God is their Father.’
In just two months, MAF flew eight times for Gäwa Christian School – transporting teachers and students in and out of the homelands, bringing post and supplies for the village shop and responding to medical emergencies. Each flight was greatly appreciated by the community.
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.
This sounded really thrilling. Mike fired one question after the other, and Mary patiently answered each one. ‘At first I could hardly believe what the angel said. You see, I wasn’t even married at the time,’ she explained. She told Mike about her fears that people might point their fingers at her, and about her deep joy when she realised that she, a simple girl from Nazareth, was chosen to be the mother of the Son of God. ‘When the time came to tell Joseph, I was really nervous, though,’ Mary admitted. ‘You don’t just go up to your fiancé and tell him: “By the way, honey, I’m having a baby, and God is the father.”’
A fun game for all the family to test your creativity and create a unique Nativity scene.
