Jason, Kim & Samuel Job
Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF)
Jason and Kim married in 2006 after meeting each other at a Bible College Open Day. Before their marriage, Jason had served with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) for several years in Australia and America. Kim, a secondary teacher, had worked with SIM (Serving in Mission) in Ethiopia teaching in at Bingham Academy, a school for missionary children.
The dream to fly in mission aviation had been with Jason for many years, but it wasn’t until 2011 that this dream became a reality. After training at ACMA (Australian College for Mission Aviation) in Coldstream, Victoria and receiving his Commercial Pilot’s License, they were accepted to work with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) in Arnhem Land. During their life in Melbourne, Jason and Kim fellowshipped at Canterbury Gardens Community Church and were commended to mission service with AMT in 2011.
Samuel was born in 2010 and is a bundle of energy. He loves planes, Lego and talking a lot. The Job family have been serving with MAF in Arnhem Land since September 2011, living in Numbulwar and Elcho Island. Living in these places allowed the family to be a Christian witness in these very remote communities and provide an aviation service in areas where road access is impossible.
The Job family are the third MAF pilot family in Timor Leste, from October 2015. Timor Leste is one of the world’s newest nations and MAF has the only fixed wing aircraft in the country. So Jason is flying staff from many aid organisations, health workers and many medical evacuations each day. They are excited to see how God will use them in this new location.
