MAF missionaries raise support for a pooled fund out of which MAF covers salary, housing, benefits, and staff-related ministry expenses. MAF exercises discretion over the use of missionary support to carry out its mission and care for its staff.
Kevin and Melisa, along with their three children, Kyle, Annie, and Ryan, have recently served with MAF in the land-locked nation of Lesotho, surrounded by the country of South Africa. Kevin faithfully worked behind the scenes as manager of the Lesotho program.
With a team of five MAF families and several national staff, Kevin led and guided them, serving as a liaison between MAF and the numerous organizations they serve in Lesotho. He oversaw the financial position of the program, ensuring efficient and responsible use of the resources available.
Kevin shares, “One thing is clear: the need is great, both for physical and spiritual healing. The Bosotho (the people of Lesotho) are trapped in a culture that combines worship of the ancestors and witch doctors with modern medicine. We, as MAF, want to bring God’s light and love, while meeting their physical needs as well.”
Whatever changes come their way, Kevin takes comfort in Romans 8:38-39, knowing that no matter what happens in this world or around him, he is secure in God’s love. His love is a sure thing and something all believers can count on! Much of Melisa’s time was devoted to everyday life and maintaining the home. Melisa built relationships in the community and frequently extended hospitality to guests. She helped lead a weekly Bible study that serves the international community of women by growing in their personal walks with Jesus, which in turn gave her great encouragement and blessing. Psalm 59:9 is a favorite of Melisa’s. “O my Strength, I watch for you; you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God.”
The Borrors served seven years in Ecuador as a pilot/mechanic family before moving to Lesotho in 2014. In early 2018, they joined MAF’s Safety/Quality Division in Nampa, ID.
God calls the men and women of MAF to serve Him in unique ways. He may also be calling you to a special role in Kevin and Melisa’s ministry. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Ministry Partner with them through prayer and/or financial support.
