I tried listening to this audiobook a few years ago, and found it hard to commit to listening to it, and I found myself playing it when it was getting late at night and I found myself forgetting what I'd heard.
I'm not always too good at taking in things I'm listening to rather than reading, but I decided to give this another go during lockdown, thinking I'd have more time to listen. It still required me to give up around half an hour of my time every day, just to listen regularly, trying one or two chapters at a time, but I was glad I did. It was about 11 and a half hours!
Stuart King founded Mission Aviation Fellowship (M.A.F.) in 1948; they are a Christian organisation, attempting to get the Gospel out to unreached parts of the world. The bits I found most striking were how they seemed to be facing constant obstacles, and difficult political situations, and usually managing to overcome them, and also their descriptions of countries that had apparently never seen an outsider before. At the end, the book talked about the modern-day situations in countries that they ministered to.
The narration, although not by the book's original writer, was enjoyable to listen to, and was reasonably engaging. I think next time though, I'll read a physical copy of the book.
Next book: The Soldier Who Came Back (Steve Foster and Alan Clark)
