A missionary plane grounded for lack of an engine.

By September 14, 2004

Congo-Kinshasa (MNN)–A Mission Aviation Fellowship airplane is sitting grounded in the Congo, awaiting a new engine.

MAF work in the Democratic Republic of Congo is vital, providing physical and spiritual lifesaving flights in remote areas across Congo (DRC). MAF serves hospitals, missionaries, and tribes in the hot and humid Congo (DRC), bringing food, water, supplies and the truth of God’s Word into areas nearly unreachable by roads. Because of war, poverty and torrential rains, roads are becoming less usable, and that is why the MAF services are so essential in this country.

Millions of people depend on the life-link of MAF workers, and through the ministry of MAF many of those people have heard the Gospel of Christ. Missionaries and nationals have seen the Congolese church grow as tens of thousands of people have come to Christ in recent years.

Pray that MAF will raise the money needed for a new engine to maintain the crucial flights throughout Congo (DRC). Pray for the protection of the MAF pilots and their families as they live and serve in remote and often dangerous areas of Congo (DRC).
