The latest update from the Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) team working in the northeastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) shows an area still beset with uncertainty as well as sporadic violence in the outlying areas. MAF program manager Jon Cadd reports that most NGOs that evacuated in November have now returned.
In eastern DRC, MAF operates three aircraft supporting the work of the church, missionaries, medical organizations, Bible translators, relief workers, and other NGOs. Four MAF pilot/mechanic families are currently serving in Bunia along with some 20 Congolese staff members, and four families are working from Kampala, Uganda. MAF also has staff and planes in the western and southern regions of the DRC.
Please continue to pray for the Congolese people, the MAF team in eastern DRC, and all staff who work in such difficult areas.
