MAF MOTHERS WORLDWIDE: Fifty years ago, a British girl in her twenties arrived in Uganda. For two years, she lived and worked among the Karamajong tribe, teaching at a school for girls before returning to the UK. Forty-eight years later, her daughter Liz Parker and husband Andrew, an MAF pilot – together with their children Esther, Benjamin and Joel – followed God’s call to Uganda. Give thanks that the seeds planted by Liz’s mum Anne Benge (née Potter) continue to blossom as Liz seeks to serve the community in Kampala as a part-time teacher.

MAF MOTHERS WORLDWIDE: ‘For this is what the Lord says: "I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you."' Reflect on this promise from Isaiah 66:12-13 (NIV) as you pray for the struggle experienced by mothers in developing countries.
