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!
‘When I saw his feet when he was born, I got scared. I thought he would never walk,’ says Christine, recalling the birth of her son Samuel, now seven years old. ‘But God answered my prayers, God bless MAF.’
Christine and Samuel are flying in a Cessna Grand Caravan back to their home in the remote village of Korr, northern Kenya. They have been at AIC-CURE International Hospital in Kijabe, where Samuel is receiving surgical treatment for bilateral club foot, a condition he was born with.
He’s had six operations since 2011. His left foot has been corrected, and the right is on the way to being straightened. Despite his age, Samuel has become one of MAF Kenya’s ‘frequent flyers’. Christine cannot recall how many times they’ve been on the plane.
Without MAF’s help, Christine knows that Samuel’s future would be bleak – our aircraft providing the only means of getting him to and from hospital to receive treatment. ‘I don’t have much to give, but I give you my prayers,’ says his Samuel’s grateful mother.
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.
Mike stammered, ‘My name is… er… Mike, and I… er… have… er… actually not the slightest idea how I ended up here in… er… where are we, exactly?’ ‘At the moment, we are still in Nazareth,’ Mary answered. ‘But not much longer,’ Joseph interrupted his wife with a frown. ‘Augustus, the man who owns all the power in Rome, wants us to register so he can count his subjects. That’s why we are supposed to travel to my birth town. Have you got any idea how far it is to Bethlehem? Five days on foot at least, but I expect it will take us twice as long because Mary needs her breaks. How is my wife supposed to travel such a long distance so shortly before the baby is due?’ Joseph was getting quite upset now.
