At Nativity 22nd February

we were invited  to attend a meeting with guest speakers from Mission Aviation Fellowship.  in Nativity lounge. Godfrey & Glen Sim from .Hagen, PNG spoke about their work supporting MAF.
By happy chance, Chris De'Ath, and Neil, an Australian pilot on holiday in NZ, both serving MAF in Arnhem Land,  had landed in Bleheim that day and joined us .
Glen's first of the several video clips, that she showed featured Chris De'Ath [click on the link image "Flying for life" to see it]

Godfrey is extremely concerned about the regression of all services in PNG and is pushing toward getting health teams MAF can fly into extremely isolated areas. Neil added that  in Arnhem Land getting health teams to extremely small isolated indigenous communities is his biggest concern.
Chris stated that democracy does not work at providing essential services for very small percentages of a population. This is most obvious for all the indigenous people of Australia.
All of them agreed that while pilots and planes for MAF will become even more valuable for serving small cutoff communities, the traditional funding baseof MAF needs to be expanded to meet the increasing need for MAF  ..
