We first left the familiar shores of the UK to move overseas with Mission Aviation Fellowship in 2017. It was the culmination of a long dream, and many years of waiting for the right moment, but we were happy to begin this great adventure into mission life.
Our first assignment was in Uganda, where Dave took on the post of Avionics Engineer, and later Regional Avionics Manager for Africa. Becky was involved in Bible teaching, preaching in local churches, helping with discipleship for a group of young people in one of Kampala’s slum communities, and also leading multiple Bible study groups.
In 2021, we left Uganda, spent three months in the UK raising support and recharging our batteries, and then moved to the opposite side of Africa. We landed in Liberia in November, and Dave settled into life in a very different work environment. With a far smaller team, albeit one rapidly growing, and different challenges, Dave added Maintenance Controller for West Africa to his growing list of responsibilities, as well as temporarily managing the maintenance facility for Liberia itself. Becky started leading another Bible study group, for women here in Liberia on the mission field, and has used her time producing resources to aid people seeking to dive deeper into the word of God. This has included weekly encouragements from the Bible, posted on our YouTube channel, and also her first Bible study book, No Mountain Immovable: How to Activate Your Faith, which is avaiable for purchase on Amazon.
We would not be able to serve with MAF in Africa without such an amazing team of people behind us in the UK, and in other parts of the world. Part of our role as missionaries with MAF is putting this team together, and we are always looking for more people to partner with us. We’re committed to keeping our supporters updated with all we’re doing, so that you can well and truly feel part of this adventure, because let’s face it, you’re as much a part of it as us!
