Located on the island of Borneo, the Indonesian province of Kalimantan is home to many of the country’s hundreds of people groups. Jungles, rivers, and swamps prevent many of these tribes and villages from access to the outside world.
MAF missionary families and Indonesian staff members serve from one base—in North Kalimantan—with two aircraft.
Because of you, MAF can provide vital aviation and radio communications services to Indonesian churches, Christian missions, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) ministering in Kalimantan.
MAF enables ministry groups to bring the Gospel and basic, life-sustaining services to this primitive and otherwise inaccessible region of Indonesia. Through aviation, MAF serves communities by providing medical evacuations, builds the Church by supporting remote pastors and Bible schools, and transforms lives by sharing the love of Jesus Christ. In addition, a unique ministry run by the MAF team here is the Rumah Singgah hospital house, where patients and family members flown by MAF stay while receiving treatment in Tarakan. It’s another ministry touchpoint where staff—including the wives and children—can serve and bless the people coming from remote villages.
