Tobias and Moriah Meyer

Tobias is a pilot serving in South Sudan. Him and his wife, Moriah got marries in 2021 – she is as excited as Tobias for the missions! South Sudan has few roads across its vast swampy plains, meaning aid and mission groups depend on MAF’s aircraft to reach people suffering through hunger, conflict and isolation.
