A Former Mission Aviation Fellowship Pilot is Missing on a Ferry Flight in Africa

Jerry Krause of Sahel Aviation Service was flying an aircraft from South Africa to Mali when his plane went missing in the area around São Tomé, off the coast of west Africa, on April 7. 

“We were very distressed to learn that Jerry Krause and his plane are missing, and MAF personnel in Africa have been doing what they can to facilitate the search,” said John Boyd, president and CEO of Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF). 

Krause served with Mission Aviation Fellowship for 22 years in Mali and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He left MAF in 2009 to work with Sahel Aviation Service, a commercial aviation company in Mali. 

“Jerry and his family have many friends at MAF,” said Boyd. “And many are praying on his behalf. We ask for your ongoing prayer until this situation is resolved.”
