Our mission

Why we fly

Because there is a direct correlation between living in isolation and chronic poverty. Because many people living in remote places have never heard the Gospel. Because when a person in isolation has a medical emergency they often can’t get the help they need. Aviation and technology is the tool to reach these isolated people with Christ’s love.

How we’re helping

As a family we are working for Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF). This organisation uses 130 small aircraft in countries where the infrastructure is bad. Every 5 minutes somewhere on earth a MAF airplane is taking off. Ide is working as a pilot for MAF flying the Cessna Caravan. For more info about this organisation click here.

What we need

Our mission isn’t possible without your help! We have payed the flight training mostly by ourselves but now we’re working for MAF on a voluntary base. Making an eternal difference in the lives of isolated people around the world is a team effort. We depend on consistent prayer and financial support from partners like you to carry out this ministry.
