Who We Are
We’d love to take this opportunity to introduce you to us, Dave & Becky Waterman! We were both born in England and lived there for the first 30 years of our lives, aside from the occasional holiday and short-term mission trip abroad. In 2016, God started to stir our hearts with the long dormant dream of mission once again, and so we applied to Mission Aviation Fellowship to bring our skills to this amazing organisation. We were accepted in May of 2017, and moved to Uganda on the 1st of December, 2017, to begin our first placement with MAF.
There is no way we could do this great adventure without our amazing supporters; people praying with us, encouraging us and giving financially so that we can be here. You are as much a part of this as we are, so please do stay tuned to this website to keep up to date and discover more about our lives here in Uganda.
Becky is a published author and a preacher. She loves to read and write, explore the great outdoors, play games, and travel.
Dave is a licensed aircraft engineer. Dave enjoys to travel, play video games, and to spend time with his friends and family.
What We Do
Dave’s role within MAF is that of Avionics Engineer; keeping the electrical bits and bobs of the Ugandan fleet working so that they can continue to fly on their essential missions. There are a limited number of avionics specialists within MAF, so there may be some travel to other programmes in the Africa region, to maintain the MAF fleets in other countries.
Becky will be taking a bit of time to adjust to life in Uganda, and then seeing what doors open here. She is hoping to get involved in preaching within the country, and using her writing skills to promote the work of MAF, and other great organisations doing life-changing work in Africa. Becky also plans to work on her next book, following the positive reception of her first novel, A Year in the Life of Jack Meadows.
We will be living and working with MAF for an initial four years in Uganda. After that we will either stay here, move to another programme, or return to the UK.
Part of our role with MAF involves building a support team around us, with people partnering in this great adventure by praying, encouraging and giving to keep us here. If you are interested in joining us in this way, please do visit our Support page.
