Micah and Rebecca Dvorak are excited to take this step in God’s plan for their lives as they serve with Mission Aviation Fellowship. As a pilot/mechanic, Micah will use aviation to share Christ’s love with isolated people as he transports national church pastors, delivers community development supplies, and provides life-saving medical evacuation flights. Rebecca will continue in her role as a stay-at-home mom, caring for their four boys: Jeremiah, Joshua, Jonathan, and James. She is excited to see what doors of ministry God opens as they move overseas.
Micah was born in Minnesota and came to Christ at a young age through the faith of his parents. At age 12, his family moved to Guatemala where they served as missionaries. His time serving with his parents gave him a desire to spread the hope of the gospel through missions. Micah earned his pilot certificate at 19 and spent six years serving in the US Air Force as an aircraft mechanic. He earned his advanced pilot ratings after his military service at Middle Georgia State University.
Rebecca was born and raised in Illinois, with a three-year stint in Oklahoma. Influenced greatly by her parents’ commitment to seek God, Rebecca became a Christian at an early age. In her early teen years, Rebecca began to sense a call to the mission field. Also encouraged by missionaries speaking in her church and reading missionary biographies, she went on her first mission trip to Mexico at age 15. After high school, Rebecca tried community college, but found it wasn’t God’s plan for her and changed course to attend Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas, TX. Rebecca went on three more short-term trips with CFNI and graduated in 2006 with a focus in children and family ministry. After a time serving back home in IL, God opened the door for Rebecca to serve at Tender Mercy Children’s Home in Guatemala.
Rebecca shares, “Three to four months after I began serving full-time at Tender Mercy Children’s Home, Micah arrived to visit his parents, the founders of the children’s home. Two days after he arrived, we started talking. We were married less than a year later in 2009.”
They are excited to move forward in the plan of God for their lives, and serve with MAF.
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 in the exercise of its mission and care of its staff.
