Mission Statement: To spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in partnership with Bible-centered missions by providing reliable transportation and logistical services.
Don Beldin was just one man flying a small single-engine airplane in the 1960s for Youth for Christ evangelism in the Bahamas. Responding to need, Don began transporting other missionaries and equipment in his plane. In 1964, the Lord guided Don to incorporate Missionary Flights International (MFI) to meet the growing needs of Bible-centered missions. The need for air service increased, so MFI acquired larger planes and added new countries.
After 42 years in West Palm Beach, MFI moved to Fort Pierce, FL in 2006. Today, MFI operates out of two hangars flying turbine-powered DC-3s to meet the needs of over 450 missions in the Bahamas, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and wherever the Lord directs. About 300 tons of cargo and 4,000 Christian workers are transported every year.
MISSIONARIES MFI carries affiliated mission personnel to and from the countries of Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas.
SUPPLIES Mission supplies and letters are received daily at the MFI hangar and are organized according to mission and destination.
PACKAGE AND LETTER SERVICE The mailroom handles letters and packages daily for over 700 affiliated missionaries and their missions.
PURCHASING MFI provides a vital service by acting as a purchasing agent for the affiliated missionaries, not just for car parts, but for any items they might need.
