Day 1


‘MAF aircraft fly all sorts of things
To help people out,’ Mike said.
‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them
All the way from A to Z.’

A is for audio Bible,
For listening to God’s wonderful Word.
As Mike took off in his small aircraft,
He was glad the Good News would be heard.

The first stop was northern Australia,
The territory of Arnhem Land.
As Mike landed his plane on the airstrip,
A man came to lend him a hand.

‘Most Bibles here are in English.
That’s not something that’s easy to read.
But now we can hear our own language,
Your cargo’s a blessing indeed!’

Mike showed him the audio Bible,
All charged up by the sun’s warm rays.
No need to worry about batteries or plugs,
Now people could listen for days.

These audio Bibles are just one of the things
That MAF flies through the skies.
Join us tomorrow for the next letter,
And another exciting surprise.

Day 2


‘MAF aircraft fly all sorts of things
To help people out,’ Mike said.
‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them
All the way from A to Z.’

B is for blankets, cosy and warm,
Stacked up in the back of Mike’s plane.
Flying so high, he looked down at the view
But could only see muddy terrain.

Beneath Mike lay Sulawesi island,
A place where he often had flown.
This Indonesian land was ruined and scarred,
It was a true disaster zone!

There’d been an earthquake and tsunami,
But MAF had got there quick,
Delivering everything the people might need
To those who were injured or sick.

Mike brought his plane down safely
For the people who’d lost their homes.
They were glad to receive his blankets
To cover their weary bones.

These blankets are just one of the things
That MAF flies through the skies.

‘MAF aircraft fly all sorts of things
To help people out,’ Mike said.
‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them
All the way from A to Z.’

C is for chimpanzee – what a surprise!
As Mike turned his plane to the west,
A call came over his radio set,
‘Please respond to this urgent request!

‘A poor baby chimp has been injured,
She has fallen out of a tree.
Please will you help us by taking her
To the wildlife sanctuary?’

Mike landed his plane in Liberia,
Where he picked up the injured ape.
Her name was Mary Beauty,
And she’d had a lucky escape.

Some poachers had killed her mother,
Leaving Mary all alone.
Mike was only too happy to take her
To the safety of her new home.

Chimpanzees are just one of the things
That MAF flies through the skies.

‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them
All the way from A to Z.’

D is for dentist – open wide!
They help us to keep our teeth healthy.
Although there are many in the UK,
Not every place is as wealthy.

The next stop for Mike was Papua,
And as he began to descend,
Down there waiting, below on the ground
Was a dentist called Ika, his friend!

‘Please take me to Nalca,’ said Ika,
‘I’m teaching the small children there
About how to clean and look after their teeth
And to treat all their smiles with care.

‘I use my puppets to teach them,
They really enjoy the show.
Fun helps the children remember
The toothbrushing skills they should know.’

Dentists are just some of passengers
That MAF flies through the skies.

Day 5


‘MAF aircraft fly all sorts of things
To help people out,’ Mike said.
‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them
All the way from A to Z.’

E is for evangelist –
Which is quite a difficult word
For a person who tells others about God’s love,
So the Good News can be heard.

Elisha lives in Tanzania,
Where he shares God’s Word with his tribe.
He travels all over the area,
Preaching to those far and wide.

As Mike brought his plane to a standstill,
He saw Elisha with a giraffe.
It was his dear friend Alpha,
Who always made Mike laugh.

The pair were surrounded by people,
Who were eager to hear what they’d say.
They’d been sharing God’s love with the Maasai,
And teaching them all how to pray.

‘MAF flies me to faraway places.
If I walked, it would take many days,’
Said Elisha, as he entered the aircraft,
‘You’re such a great help Mike, always.’

‘May I join in your alphabet adventure?’
Alpha asked his good friend Mike.
‘To see the things MAF’s flying,
Is something I’d really like.’

Evangelists are just some of passengers

Day 6


‘MAF aircraft fly all sorts of things
To help people out,’ Mike said.
‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them

F is for fuel drums – jolly and red,
And very heavy indeed.
With fuel inside, to help our planes fly,
It’s just what our pilots need.

Mike’s next stop was back in Australia,
To MAF’s maintenance base.
Waiting was Pilot Bridget,
With a great big smile on her face.

‘Welcome, Mike and Alpha,
I hope you can help me today.
These drums full of fuel will help me fly
To Arnhem Land far away.’

The friends were only too happy to help,
And the drums were soon on the plane.
Then heading west towards Arnhem Land,
They knew they’d see their friends again.

These fuel drums are just one of the things
That MAF flies through the skies.

Day 7


‘MAF aircraft fly all sorts of things
To help people out,’ Mike said.
‘This Advent, let’s build a list of them
All the way from A to Z.’

G is for glass eyes – they can’t help you see,
But they might help you feel more content
If you unfortunately lost your own eye
Through an illness or accident.

The next stop was Madagascar,
On the runway below was a fox.
It was their old friend Foxtrot,
In whose paws they saw a box.

Foxtrot handed over the cargo,
A big box filled with glass eyes.
They were needed in a faraway hospital,
To give a patient a nice surprise.

Foxtrot climbed into the aircraft,
And the friends were soon in the air,
Heading off to the remote village hospital,
To deliver the cargo there.

These glass eyes are just one of the things
That MAF flies through the skies.

H is for healthcare workers
Who use their special skills
To help people far from a hospital,
And take care of all their ills.

Next stop for the friends was Angola,
The home of Dr Tim.
He looks after people who aren’t very well,
So they were pleased they could help him.

‘Hello friends,’ said the doctor,
As Mike carefully landed his plane.
‘I’m needed in a hard-to-reach village,
Do you think you could help me again?

‘I help people when they’re feeling sick,
I tell them about Jesus too,
But the village is a very long way away,
So I can’t get there without you.’

‘Climb on board,’ shouted Alpha.
‘We’ll soon get you there,’ said Mike.
Foxtrot said, as he loaded the plane,
‘We’re glad we can save you a hike.’

Healthcare staff are just some of the passengers

I is for injured people,
Who need urgent medical care.
If they can’t get to hospital by car or bus,
MAF carries them in the air.

As Mike and his friends headed west,
An urgent call came through:
‘Could you hurry to the island of Timor-Leste?
We’ve an urgent job for you.

‘A villager was hurt on his bike,
When it started veering madly.
Please take the patient in your plane,
He needs a crutch quite badly.’

The friends were only too happy to help,
And they sped to the man in their plane.
They soon had him safe with the doctors
Who helped him feel better again.

J is for the Jesus film,
With a powerful story to tell
Of what Jesus did in His time on earth,
And His power to change lives as well.

The next stop for the friends was Uganda,
To catch up with their old mate Sam,
Who works hard as an evangelist,
Which is why he’s a busy man.

Sam was below on the airstrip
As Mike brought his plane in to land.
‘Could you take me to the Ssese Islands?
I’ve something exciting planned.

‘The people who live in the islands
Have had a difficult year.
I’m going to show them the Jesus film;
They need some Christmas cheer!’

In no time at all, they were on their way
To the isolated location,
Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ
At the islanders’ celebration.

The Jesus film is just one of the things
That MAF flies through the skies.

K is for the Kündigs,
A couple from Switzerland.
They’ve been with MAF for many years,
And love to lend a hand.

Our friends flew to see them in Guinea,
Which is where Emil and Margrit live.
They are travelling around the country
To see what help MAF can give.

The roads in Guinea are not very good,
With some washed away by the rain.
It’s certainly easier to travel there
If you’re flying in Mike’s little plane.

It would be such a joy for the people
If there was an MAF base.
The Kündigs are working to set one up,
Which would be a great help for the place.

Alpha was very excited
To hear all the news of their mission.
He decided he’d stay and help them there;
He’d be a most useful addition.

The Kündigs are just some of the passengers
That MAF flies through the skies.

L is for Lesotho Flying Pastors,
Who rely on MAF’s aviation
To spread the Good News of Jesus Christ
To those in this African nation.

Mike and Foxtrot flew over the mountains,
Touching down in a most remote place.
A joyful man came towards them,
With a great big grin on his face.

‘Thanks for landing here,’ he said,
‘I’m a Lesotho Flying Pastor.
If you can take me in your little plane,
My journey will be much faster.

‘I’m going to visit the shepherds,
I’ve a Christian film to show them.
I’ll tell them all about God’s love,
And how He longs to know them.’

‘Climb on board,’ said Foxtrot,
‘We’d love to help you out.

M is for medical supplies,
Such as bandages, gloves and pills.
All the things a doctor needs
To cure people of their ills.

The next stop for the friends was in Chad
At a hospital which was pretty remote.
Below on the airstrip waving,
Was a doctor in a white coat.

‘Hello Mike,’ said Dr Mark,
‘Getting supplies here can be tough.
I’m hoping that in the back of your plane
You’ll have lots of medical stuff.’

In the back of the plane were boxes
Of medicine, crutches and masks.
Just what the doctor ordered
To help with his medical tasks.

‘I’m so grateful to MAF,’ said Dr Mark,
‘Who really help my work here.
You keep flying all the equipment we need;
We had over a tonne last year!’

N is for neem trees – they’re really quite small,
And fit in the back of Mike’s plane.
They’re planted to prevent soil erosion,
Which can happen a lot when there’s rain.

This unusual cargo was destined
To be delivered to South Sudan.
As Mike came to a halt on the airstrip,
He was met by a smiling man.

‘Thank you for bringing these saplings
To replace the trees lost in a flood.
The Nile burst its banks in the springtime,
And left the place covered in mud.

‘We don’t want the soil to be washed away,
It’s so important for farming.
Being unable to grow the food we need
Would really be alarming.’

Mike and Foxtrot unloaded their plane,
There were 2,000 plants in the hold.
Once they’d been placed outside the plane,
It was quite a sight to behold.

Neem trees are just one of the things

O is for orthopaedic surgeon,
That’s a special sort of physician.
One who treats bones and joints which hurt
And puts them in the right position.

The next stop for Mike was Kenya,
He was collecting a medical team,
Then flying them to a faraway village
Where the patients were waiting to be seen.

Mike landed the plane on the runway,
And the doctors all climbed inside.
The journey would take two hours,
So they’d have an enjoyable ride.

As they neared their remote destination,
The friends could see from the plane
A queue of people forming below,
Some sad and clearly in pain.

The doctors were soon very busy
Helping those in the queue that had formed.
They treated loads of people,
Whose lives were now totally transformed.

Orthopaedic surgeons are just some of the folk

P is for primary school teacher,
Someone who helps us to learn.
But if there isn’t a school where you live,
Then education is quite a concern.

In the country of Bangladesh,
Which was Mike’s next destination,
He’d heard of lots of children
In a very remote location.

There wasn’t a school for them nearby,
But teacher Julie was willing to go.
She’d set up a new school for the children,
But still needed to get there though.

Mike’s MAF plane is just the thing
For getting to a far-flung place,
So Julie climbed into the plane,
With a massive great smile on her face.

‘Without you to fly me, Mike,’ she said,
‘This journey would take me all day.
But your plane will get me to the classroom
Safely and without delay.’

Q is for qualified engineer,
That’s a person who can mend a plane.
They sort out all of the problems,
And soon have them flying again.

So the friends headed back to South Sudan,
They went back to the blistering heat.
A plane was stuck in a faraway field
To mend it, a difficult feat!

This was just the job that Foxtrot liked,
So he grabbed his trusty toolbox.
He’d soon have the aircraft flying again;
What a truly remarkable fox!

Below, he could see his engineer friends,
As Mike’s little plane descended.
If they gave the stuck plane a new engine,
It would soon be ready and mended.

R is for radio and S is for solar,
Exciting technological advances.
For those living far from power or phones,
They really improve circumstances.

The highlands of Papua New Guinea
Was the friends’ next destination,
To meet the technology experts
Who help this remote location.

MAF’s team was waiting on the runway
Beside a huge pile of kit.
They loaded it on to Mike’s aircraft,
But it wasn’t an easy fit.

First, there was a radio mast
For a village with no telephone.
With a radio, they could call for help,
And would no longer be on their own.

There were also some solar panels
To convert the rays of the sun
Into much needed electricity
To help lots of gadgets run.

The cargo was stowed and the team climbed on board,
Mike’s plane was soon in the air.
It was good that technology could be used
To show God’s love and care.

T is for translators, who work on the Bible,
A job which often can goes unsung.
Their work means people can read God’s Word
In their very own language or and tongue.

Next stop on their Advent adventure,
The friends flew to Kalimantan.
On the Indonesian island of Borneo,
They were determined to lend a hand.

Standing below by the airstrip,
Three ladies were waving a greeting.
‘Please would you fly us in your plane
To a very important meeting?’

‘We’re helping to translate the Bible
From English into Punan,
So people can read the Good News
In the language of Kalimantan.’

The ladies thanked Mike, and Foxtrot too,
‘You’re playing an important part
In enabling people to read God’s Word
In the language of their heart.’

U is for unsafe – a frightening feeling
Which makes people feel sad or upset.
MAF is on standby to help people out
If their family or home’s under threat.

Mike’s radio buzzed in his cockpit
With another important request.
‘Please head straight away to Mozambique,
There’s been fighting there and unrest.’

Mike landed his plane in Palma
Where a small crowd waited in fear.
‘Please climb on board,’ said Foxtrot,
‘We’ll soon have you safe, far from here.’

There were mothers and fathers and children,
And each took a seat on the plane.
At last they were able to smile and relax;
They knew they’d be safe once again.

V is for vaccines that help keep us safe
From all sorts of disease and infection.
Even those who aren’t near a doctor
Still need to have their injection.

The Democratic Republic of Congo
Was the next stop for our good friends to make,
With an important cargo of vaccines
To help with a measles outbreak.

Mike loaded the cargo of vaccines
Carefully into the aircraft’s hold.
They were packed into special ice boxes
In order to keep them cold.

Their destination was Lisala
Where a large crowd calmly waited.
They were very close to the airstrip
Where the local clinic was located.

Some of the children were worried
About having to have an injection,
So Mike and Foxtrot calmed them down.
It was worth it for measles protection.

W is for water, so refreshing to drink.
It stops us getting dehydrated.
But dirty water can make you sick;
It’s important that it’s filtrated.

Mike’s next stop was in South America
To visit his friends in Brazil.
They were working to provide clean water
So people there wouldn’t get ill.

‘It’s good to see you, Mike,’ they said,
‘Can you fly us to the Purus River?
We have boxes of water filters
That we need you to deliver.’

X is for X-ray fixer and Y’s for YouTuber –
Not often seen in the same space.
But both of them rely on MAF planes
If they work in a hard-to-reach place.

Mike and Foxtrot will be busy today
As two people need their assistance.
The first passenger, Desmond, is in PNG,
Which is quite a considerable distance.

Desmond fixes machines that make the X-rays
Doctors use to find out what’s wrong.
Being flown to the hospital saves him time;
To drive would take far too long.

Desmond was soon dropped off safely
There was another passenger waiting.
Noel needed Mike’s help, and his aircraft,
For the video he was creating.

Noel was waiting in Kenya
With his camera and video kit.
He was making a film about MAF,
Which he’d shoot in Mike’s cockpit.

The video would go on YouTube
So that people could watch it online
And learn about the things MAF does
And how it’s a real lifeline.

Look around

In Timor-Leste, MAF aircraft work a bit like an air ambulance.

Last year, 346 of our passengers were emergency patients – that’s nearly 1 for every day of the year! There are hardly any hospitals in Timor-Leste, which is why MAF flies so many ill and injured people. Without MAF, it can take days to travel overland to see a doctor. Timor-Leste is one of the poorest countries in Asia, and one in three people don’t have clean water to drink. This means that many families catch diseases like typhoid and hepatitis from dirty water. MAF enables charities like WaterAid to set up clean water systems and teach people how to wash their hands, so diseases don’t spread.

A little more about Timor-Leste...

Location

Timor-Leste occupies half of the island of Timor and is close to the northern coast of Australia. The country shares borders with West Timor, which is part of the Indonesian province of East Nusa Tenggara – the southernmost province of Indonesia.

Fascinating Fact

In the 1960s, a fascinating archaeological find was made! In a large cave called Lena Hara, people discovered fishhooks made from shells and beads which were dated as being more than 30,000 years old.

Weather

Current Weather: 28°C, Clouds

Although the weather can be a warm and tropical 30°C, it’s the rainy season. During December there can be as many as 25 days of rain – although most people don’t splash around in wellies!

The flying ambulance

A medical emergency can happen anywhere to anyone at any time, but when it happens in remote Timor-Leste, you’ll need MAF’s help!

In April this year, MAF received a call to pick up a man who’d been injured in a bike accident. He had broken his leg, hurt his back and suffered a serious head injury.

Because Timor-Leste was in a state of emergency due to COVID-19, only medical evacuation flights were allowed to fly without permission.

So, without any delay, MAF’s team flew to Los Palos and brought the patient back to Dili, where he could receive the treatment he needed.

‘It was a great experience for me to be part of this flight, learning how to work with medevac patients, and moving them from the aircraft to the hospital ambulance,’ says MAF Pilot Ping, who accompanied Pilot Jonathan on this flight.

They had just moved the aircraft into the hangar after returning from their first medevac, when they received a call for another one!

A boy in a place called Suai had been playing with a coin and had somehow managed to swallow it. It was another emergency because the coin had stuck in the boy’s throat and he was having trouble breathing. Help, however, would take hours by road.

Fortunately, MAF Pilot Jonathan was able to fly to Suai, pick up the little boy and his family and take them to Dili, where they reached the hospital safely.

The boy’s parents were grateful for the flying ambulance because it saved the youngster’s life! Without flights like these, ill or injured people in Timor-Leste wouldn’t be able to get the treatment they need.

Medevac

A medevac is the shorter word for a medical evacuation. This means taking someone from one place (often very remote) in an aeroplane to a hospital far away. Medevac flights are often people’s only choice in order to survive.

Hangar

A hangar is the large buildings used to store aeroplanes when they are not being used, or when they are grounded for maintenance.

Bible

Read

Luke 2:6-7

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.

Pray

Pray

Dear God, we thank You that it doesn’t take many hours to get to hospital in the UK. Thank You that, because of MAF’s planes, people in remote locations in Timor-Leste can get medical help fast and avoid long journeys by road when they’re in pain. Amen.

Today's Challenge
