Since 1990, Northland has supported the work of Mike Faus, who has faithfully served in various roles with Mission Aviation. Serving first as a missionary pilot in Indonesia and in various countries in Southern Africa, he then assumed leadership and management roles in that aviation ministry and later in mission hospital ministries. Now with the SIM mission, Mark and his wife, Jana, use medicine as their platform for spreading the Gospel and offering critical health care to villagers without direct access to care. Mark assumed a new role as SIM's Global Governance Consultant. He is tasked to train and advise the boards of directors in each of SIM's seventy ministry countries and boards of the church denominations associated with the SIM. Jana serves with the SIM Health Ministries Team in the role of communications. Mark, Jana, and their son Carter enjoy hiking.
