Scott and Monti Channon, with their children, Bethany and Daniel, are missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship currently serving the Lord at MAF headquarters in Nampa, Idaho.
During their first seven years with MAF, they served as a pilot/mechanic family in Venezuela. Scott shares, “What a blessing is what to see God work out the many details that made reaching the remote peoples of Venezuela possible. It takes a complex interweaving of people including missionaries, pilots, mechanics, U.S. staff, and prayer and financial partners, working together as a team to give wings to the Gospel.”
During their time in Venezuela, many barriers were overcome to bring the Gospel to remote villages. In addition, life-saving medicines and emergency transportation were part of the daily flights done to support mission work in the far reaches of the jungle.
In early 2006, the government of Venezuela ordered missionaries out of the jungle areas of Venezuela. MAF was forced to close their operations there. After this, MAF asked the Channons to join the flight training team in the US, and they accepted.
MAF headquarters provides the necessary support needed to keep families on the front lines, serving and ministering to those who are in such need, both physically and spiritually. You can think of it as "Mission Control"...providing the vital services and support families on the field need to continue their work.
As one of the five flight instructors in the training department, Scott helps evaluate new MAF hopefuls, train new MAF pilots, and travel the world checking MAF pilots on the field. His service in this role is vital for safe and effective operations overseas.
God calls the men and women of MAF to serve Him in unique ways. He may also be calling you to a special role in Scott and Monti’s ministry. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Ministry Partner with them through prayer and/or financial support.
The Channons share, “We are thankful for the continued faithful support of our ministry partnership team and we invite you to become a ministry partner with us in this strategic ministry as well. Please prayerfully consider involvement with us through prayer and financial support.”
