MAF Advent Calendar


A little about UK...

  • The United Kingdom is a truly diverse and vibrant country home to many thousands of MAF supporters, volunteers and friends. Based in the sunny seaside town of Folkestone, with remote offices in Welling and Glasgow, our team of 62 MAF UK staff are always here to help. Spare a thought for our 28 overseas staff who will be spending Christmas away from their extended families. UK pilots, aircraft engineers, finance, communications and managerial staff all help keep MAF’s worldwide fleet of 135 aircraft in the air - bringing spiritual and physical help to some of the world’s poorest and most isolated people.


A very Happy Christmas


As we get ready to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, we thank you for joining us on this journey around the world with MAF during Advent. Today, we invite you to take a few moments to reflect upon the prayer below written by Co-Founder and President Emeritus of MAF, Stuart King:


Lord, thank you for your peace, protection and provision.

We pray that MAF will always have:

One purpose – the glory of God

One pathway – the will of God

One passion – the love of God.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

We hope you have a very happy Christmas, from all of us here at MAF UK!

Christmas Story

Day Twenty Four

‘Mike, wake up!’ ‘What is it, Mary? Do you need help with the baby?’ ‘Why do you call me Mary? Can’t you recognise your own mother? It seems to me that you’ve been flying around too much!’ Mike rubbed his eyes. It was his mum. Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus were gone. Well, actually they were still there, though not as fully grown humans but in the shape of the figures grandpa had carved. Mike was confused. ‘Am I no longer in Bethlehem?’ he asked. ‘In Bethlehem? No, child, you were sleeping soundly on the carpet. You really should rest more.’ ‘So it was just a dream,’ Mike said regretfully. ‘Yet, it was the most beautiful dream I’ve ever had.’
