As the door closed to MAF operations in nearby Ethiopia closed, God opened another door to set up a base in Tanzania’s new capital of Dodoma in late 1977. Sub-bases in six other locations around the country followed and at the peak of MAF’s operations, 11 aircraft were in use.

As the country’s infrastructure has improved, MAF flights in Tanzania today focus on bringing partners to the country’s south and to the Maasai communities in the north, through holistic medical safaris around Malambo. Much of that work remains rooted in the original vision of bringing the Gospel to the unreached. “From the beginning, we’ve served the Church in Tanzania and have been there during a time of tremendous growth in the number of believers,” said long-serving MAF staff member Max Gove.
