Will and Julie (Sybrant) White have lived in Haiti for 12 years, where Will is a pilot for Mission Aviation Fellowship. MAF provides transportation for mission, church and relief workers within Haiti.
A usual term with MAF is three and a half years overseas and a six month furlough in the US. However, this time the Whiteâ€™s extended this furlough so the kids could have an entire school year in an American school.
