Immeasurably More – Flying for the Way Maker
Written by Liz Parker and published by 10 Publishing
Review by Carol
Here is a book revealing the ordinary everyday life of a family who work with MAF (Missionary Aviation Fellowship).
The author tells her story of being the wife of a MAF pilot, a mum, a teacher to her children in four African countries, including their experience caught up in civil war in South Sudan.
Liz describes their daily chores and challenges, the lessons learned through the difficulties which are part of living outside of their familiar culture, and the prayerful support, love, and kindness of their community of Christians around them.
She tells of the one constant throughout their continually changing journey of experiences – the presence of our promise – keeping God.
When she was facing a particularly challenging issue and questioned “what if I am not able to manage?”, another wise MAF missionary responded, ‘the question is not am I brave enough? but rather is my God big enough?’. If you have faith in who God is, it doesn’t matter how strong you feel.”
As Liz reflects on these verses she explains, “His faithfulness, His plans for us, His love go further than MAF planes, further than our life’s journey, further than our wildest dreams.”
As well as giving insight into MAF, this book will encourage parents in everyday struggles and it points the reader to appreciate more the experiences of God’s faithful love.
