“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.” Psalm 96:3

Marcos and Maddison Souza are looking forward to beginning their journey as missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship. Marcos will serve as a Maintenance Specialist with MAF, working in the hangar to keep the airplanes running to transport missionaries, medical personnel, and supplies. He is also looking forward to building relationships with the local people, and being a part of a genuine Christian community in order to spread the good news of Christ. Maddison will continue in her role as a full-time mom raising their two children, Elias (2) and Zoe (4 months). She is also excited about finding ways to serve in women’s and children’s ministries and possibly using her sports background to build relationships for Christ.

Marcos was raised in a Christian home and was strongly influenced by the training and mentorship of his dad. He came to faith at a young age and felt a call toward full-time ministry during junior high. He went on several overseas mission trips during high school and college. Marcos has always had a love for aviation and fixing things, so when he was introduced to MAF during college, he was immediately excited about the possibility of combining these passions with his desire to see Christ proclaimed to the nations.

Maddison was also raised by believing parents and accepted Christ at a very young age. She had the privilege of growing up in very mission-minded churches and her parents were influential in directing her toward missions. She grew up reading the biographies of MAF missionaries such as Betty Greene and Nate Saint, and began going on short-term mission trips as a teenager. Marcos and Maddison met on a mission trip to El Salvador and were married in 2011. Together they share a passion to see the gospel advance to the ends of the earth.
