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!

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!
Emma Grace is a happy, energetic seven-year-old girl who has just started the first grade (year 2) at a school in Papua, Indonesia. But when Emma Grace was born, she very nearly died because of the superstitious beliefs of her family and community.
The Moi tribe live in an isolated mountain village and thought Emma Grace should not have been born. Thankfully, the missionaries in the village found Emma Grace just in time to save her life. They kept her safe until she could be with her family again.
Many of the community now believe in Jesus and can see their little girl for who she is - a gift from God!
Emma Grace is now a thriving little girl who loves to play with her friends and go to school. In fact, the school Emma Grace attends is there because many of the building materials were flown in by MAF planes.
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.
It was still dark outside when Mary came to wake Mike. Their neighbour had been very kind and had lent Joseph his donkey. The animal was extremely stubborn but at least Mary wouldn’t have to walk the whole way from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Being used to getting from A to B in no time at all, Mike was getting quite bored after a few hours. Mary was half asleep on the donkey’s back and Joseph wasn’t the most talkative of companions. Mike tried several topics but he didn’t contribute much to the conversation. Finally, when they somehow ended up speaking about angels, Mary started to talk. She obviously had a lot to say on the subject.
