"that Indonesia is home to the largest Muslim population"
Sean and Rebecca Cannon Missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship March 2010 ...that Indonesia is home to the largest Muslim population in the world? A recent study by Pew Research found that more than 60 percent of the world’s Muslim population is in Asia. Only 20 percent reside in the Middle East and North Africa. The study found that “the top five Muslim countries in the world are Indonesia, Egypt, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh, in that order.” MAF has been in the country of Indonesia for more than half a century. In some of the areas where MAF missionaries are based, they are the only Christian missionaries within 300 miles. We will have a unique opportunity in Indonesia to live in predominantly Muslim communities. Please pray with us that our lives among Muslim friends and neighbors will be used by Christ to draw many to Himself. MAF in Haiti Following the tragic earthquake which struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, MAF’s 23-year history in Haiti and knowledge of the land, culture, and language are proving invaluable to outside groups providing aid. MAF has established a satellite communications center at the Port-au- Prince airport, allowing relief agencies to effectively communicate with those in and outside of Haiti. The MAF han- gar has become a logistics point for aid organizations bringing food, water, medicines, and other relief supplies into this devastated country. MAF relief flights transport teams of medical and relief workers to remote areas. For more information about MAF’s work in Haiti, visit the MAF webpage: www.maf.org.
