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. In 2021, we moved again, to Liberia.
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 started out as an Avionics Engineer within MAF, and was later promoted to Regional Avionics Manager for Africa. He continues to support the programmes worldwide with his avionics expertise, but his primary focus these days is assisting with establishing a regional maintenance base for all of the programmes within West Africa, both present and in the future.
Becky is an author and a Bible teacher, and uses her time within country in both of those areas, working on her next novel while also speaking at churches and various Bible study groups.
We spent our first three and a half years with MAF living in Uganda, and moved to Liberia in 2021.
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.
