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.
Will and Jenelle Wolf are looking forward to serving with Mission Aviation Fellowship as God continues to write the next chapter of their lives. As a maintenance specialist, Will plans to use his experience to ensure the safe and efficient operation of aircraft for the mission, as they transport national church pastors and missionaries, as well as medical and community development supplies. Jenelle will continue her role as a stay-at-home mom and homeschool teacher to their children, Raymond, Sherian, and Miles. Jenelle is also excited to discover opportunities to minister to other moms and families in the community.
Born in southwestern Minnesota, Will’s parents and grandparents influenced both his decision to follow Christ and his pursuit of missions. Will shares, “My grandparents made a point of supporting a number of missionaries and hosting them at their home, and it was always amazing to hear their stories of God’s faithfulness. In 2002 Will had the opportunity to visit with some of these missionaries on a short-term missions trip in south and central Brazil.” Will moved to Alaska in 2001 to finish high school, and in 2005 he graduated from University of Alaska-Fairbanks, with an Associate degree in Aviation Maintenance Technology. Will then worked for an air taxi service doing maintenance and repairs at Fairbanks International Airport, as well as in bush Alaska.
Jenelle was born in northern Minnesota to parents who were involved in full-time Christian camping ministry. The influence of her parents helped her make the decision to come to Christ at a young age, and being raised in a ministry family caused her to see firsthand the impact that Christ’s love can have on people. While still a child, she was deeply impacted by a missionary speaker one week at camp, and at that point dedicated her life to spreading God’s love to those who have never heard. In 2006, Jenelle graduated from New Tribes Bible Institute with an AA in Biblical Studies. She has spent the last few years growing personal relationships and working in local churches through youth and children’s ministries.
Will met Jenelle while visiting with family in Wisconsin, and they began conversing long distance. Through these conversations they discovered not only each other’s heart for Christ, but also the shared desire for missions. Will and Jenelle were married in 2015, and began to pray that God would open the door for them to enter the mission field.
The Wolfs are thankful to God for the opportunity to serve with Mission Aviation Fellowship.
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 the Wolfs’ ministry. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Ministry Partner with them through prayer and/or financial support.
