Beginning in 1956 as CRMF (Christian Radio Missionary Fellowship), Technology Services in PNG is focused on keeping the remote communities connected to the outside world.
HF radios are installed and maintained in many small isolated communities throughout PNG. The HF radio means that villages in the most remote parts of PNG are able to contact MAF and provide vital airstrip information, as well as organise ﬂights and urgent medical evacuations. HF radios also provide communities with email and internet access, enabling pastors and teachers to utilize ministry resources and training.
When pilots have spare room on their aircraft, they are able to take a small “Biblebox” along with them, an empty toolbox ﬁlled with Bibles in the Tok Pisin language, Bible concordances, audio Bibles and more. These resources are in such high demand that the ﬁrst location a pilot lands, almost all the Bibles are instantly sold.
The WIFIBible is a little box that transmits an open wireless signal, which anyone with a wireless mobile phone, tablet or laptop can connect to and download biblical resources from for free. The small but powerful box contains Bibles (including audio ones), movies (including the Jesus ﬁlm), Christian songs and apps in 9 diﬀerent Tokples languages – over 12GB of Good News!
