During the coming months Radford Road Church will be supporting the Mission Aviation Fellowship. This Christian organisation enables thousands of aid, relief and mission projects in really remote places, because that’s where some of the greatest human needs are. MAF operates in the hardest-to-reach locations, where people live isolated from the rest of the world, cut off from the most basic necessities. The highly trained pilots manoeuvre Cessna and Kodiak aircraft through rugged terrain. And while passengers might hold their breath, MAF pilots skilfully land at short, unimproved airstrips on the sides of mountains, in jungle clearings, or on tropical rivers – to bring medicine and doctors, disaster relief, education, evangelists, Bible translators, food supplies, agriculture, clean water projects, and more. Why do they do it? Because they are passionate about sharing Christ’s love beyond where the road ends.
Working in partnership with hundreds of other Christian and relief organisations MAF enables practical help, physical healing, and spiritual hope to be delivered to many of the most remote and inaccessible communities on the planet.
The new project was launched at our ‘Last Night at the Proms’ evening on September 10th 2016. Over the curse of the coming months we aim to raise £1000 for this work.
