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.

In the meantime, thanks very much and all the best for this year ahead!
John Iseminger, from The Seed Company, has been involved with the translation of the Bible into the Koti language for the last 20 years. While he doesn’t always get to fly with MAF, he appreciates it when he does. ‘It’s the best way to get around,’ he explains. ‘It’s time efficient. It’s cost efficient.’
MAF starting flying in Mozambique shortly after John arrived. He says trying to do a language survey and mapping out the area was difficult. ‘One of the questions that the mappers would ask us was, “Where’s the border? Where does this language group end and where does the other one start?”
‘Well, all we had to do was get up in the air!’ says John. ‘Flying has really helped to get perspective and see what people are living with and dealing with. You can’t see that stuff on the ground.’
The Koti language New Testament should be completed in two years’ time – a major achievement for John’s translation team. Once it’s finished, MAF will no doubt be asked to carry a very special cargo to the Koti.
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.
Later in the day, the rough men left, singing and praising God all the way. Mary and Joseph were amazed by what had happened. Time and again Mary said, ‘How can it be that simple people like you and I are called to be parents of the Son of God?’ ‘And how can it be that a simple boy like me can travel through time to be part of this wonderful story?’ Mike wondered aloud, but neither Mary nor Joseph heard his question because little Jesus was hungry and demanded to be fed.
