Description

This volume is an account of the missionary organization, the Mission Aviation Fellowship. Born out of the flying skills obtained during World War II, the MAF continues to take medicines, food and vital equipment to many of the world's most far-flung places where travel by land is out of the question. The book records both the struggle and setbacks, breakthroughs and successes of MAF's history to date. Stuart Sendall-King is the author of "My Daily Walk with Jesus".show more
