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!

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!
Charlie Brown is a pioneering, practical missionary and a big inspiration to MAF’s pilots in South Sudan. Serving with World Mission in Kimatong, he builds homes for long-term Africa Inland Mission teams serving the unreached Lariim people.
Because the internet is poor, Charlie didn’t even know if the MAF plane was coming as scheduled. He couldn’t check emails, nor could he let his family know he was okay. He lives simply, eating rice and beans and living in a tent.
The building project had been delayed because transporting materials along the treacherous roads is extremely challenging. Supplies have been lost to bandits and three people killed. Charlie, along with 20 villagers, cleared the way for an airstrip to open in Kimatong to make travelling safer and easier.
Alongside the construction, Charlie’s work with World Mission involves distributing small, solar-powered MP3 players with Scripture on it in the Laarim language to help spread the Gospel among Kimatong’s people. He puts aside his own comforts so this people group will come to know Christ.
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.
‘I think I like you best, Mary,’ Mike murmured. ‘The look in your eyes is so courageous.’ Suddenly, Mary was no longer small and made of wood, but tall and very much alive. She seemed to be surprised by something. ‘Joseph, did you hear that noise? I think I heard someone speak.’ Joseph, no longer a wooden figurine but instead a stout young man, shrugged his shoulders. ‘I didn’t hear a sound. But I’ve got so used to all sorts of incredible things happening that I wouldn’t be surprised if another angel came to see us,’ he joked. Mike laughed out loud.
