Because there is a direct correlation between living in isolation and chronic poverty. Because many people living in remote places have never heard the Gospel. Because when a person in isolation has a medical emergency they often can’t get the help they need.
MAF believe that everyone—even the isolated—deserves a chance to experience the love of Jesus Christ.
So they use aviation, technology, and training because in many places those are the only ways to reach isolated people with Christ’s love.
As a Church we specially pray for and support Abby and Sam Baguma with daughters Rachel and Rebecca. Abby is a former member of Christ Church, Southborough.

Crossteach work with local Christian communities to enable young people in schools to critically engage with the Christian faith in a fun and relevant way.
In some schools Crossteach deliver units of work on subjects such as ‘Life, ministry and teachings of Jesus’, ‘Christian beliefs of life after death’ and ‘Christian beliefs about the origins of the world and its purpose.’
Crossteach has also had many opportunities to deliver one-off lessons from a Christian perspective. Particularly popular are the Q & A sessions whereby students are able to ask any question they may have about Christian beliefs and how that affects their lifestyle.
Lunch and after school clubs offer an opportunity for any student to continue their discussions about the Christian faith. With a combination of music, snacks, games and chat these clubs prove to be popular with many students.

Founded in October 1986, with the specific aim to "promote the advancement of the Christian Faith", Sovereign World Trust has been sending high quality Christian teaching and training books to pastors, leaders, colleges and libraries worldwide.
It is the poorest countries that have been experiencing the fastest growth in the number of people becoming Christians and the emerging leaders are desperately short of training and resources.
