It’s hard to imagine that one jerrycan filled with fuel can help transform a life or community. But for millions of people living in remote places around the world, even a small accident or minor sickness can leave them cut off from the help they need. And each jerrycan holds about 20 litres of fuel and that’s enough for 20 minutes of flying. In many of the remote places where we serve, our flights may only be over the next ridge of mountains, but even these short flights can save lives. That’s the power of a jerrycan of fuel.

Each year MAF continues to bring positive change in remote communities around the world—and 2017 was no exception. This year alone, our flights brought severely disabled children to get treatment in Mongolia, medical teams to floating hospitals in Bangladesh and educational supplies to remote villages in Papua New Guinea. For those in very remote areas of the world having the Bible in their own language is not taken for granted. Recently Mark Fox (CEO MAF New Zealand) and Ian McDougall (General Manager for MAF Australia) had the chance to go on a MAF flight to deliver Bibles (translated by SIL) to two remote communities, Maridi and Mundri, in South Sudan. Local pastor Tito was thrilled to have so many Bibles in the local language delivered by MAF, which will have a positive impact on these two communities for years to come.

The stories go on and on as MAF makes “makes all the difference” in over 30 nations. After a series of hurricanes ripped apart homes and caused destruction across the islands of the Caribbean and families struggled to recover, Mission Aviation Fellowship had staff on the ground and in the air providing assistance. In Nepal, a country still recovering from the earthquake in 2015 that killed 9000 and injured 22,000 people, MAF continues to support the rebuilding of the remote villages high in the mountains.

So, thank you so much for buying a Jerrycan of jet fuel. You can be assured, each Jerrycan makes a huge difference in many lives somewhere in the world!
