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!
Dabia is an isolated, rural village in the Kilimatinde region of Tanzania. In some ways, progress is happening fast. The village is hurtling into the 21st century with its first Internet connection. But mobile networks connect people where there are still no roads. The severe lack of medical care in Tanzania provides a stark contrast to the rapid growth of digital technology.
The monthly mobile clinics that MAF enables are making a real difference to the village with no medical services at all. Mothers walk a very long way, carrying their children for many miles through the bush to attend the clinics.
As well as flying the plane MAF Pilot Jarkko Korhonen, from Finland, also rolls up his sleeves to help with the ministry. One mother, impressed by the way Jarkko had led baptism and communion services in Dabia, decided to name her son after him!
What a privilege! She needed a little help with the spelling but soon the child’s full name officially became Jarkko Festo Laban!
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.

But… but… I… I cannot accept this,’ Joseph stammered, but the men insisted. ‘This child is a great king and we will not be denied the honour of giving Him what He is worthy of!’
