The value of short-term trips

PNG in 23

There were four short-term exposure trips held in 2023 to give participants a taste of the work Wycliffe Australia supports and explore a range of roles relating to Bible translation and language development projects. These included a Ministry, Adventure, Discovery (go MAD) trip to Indigenous Australian communities, Scripture engagement training in Kenya, a tour of the Holy Land and an inaugural trip to Papua New Guinea.

A team of 12 Aussies participated in the trip to PNG. Based at the SIL International guest house in Ukarumpa, they visited a training centre and medical ministry, and also had the opportunity to visit local villages. This experience exposed them to the need for more people to help with finance, information technology, teaching, maintenance, literacy, Scripture engagement and much more. Ianthe was a participant on the trip who shared, ‘What a valuable investment of two weeks! I am pretty sure something wonderful will come of it.’

Thanks for your patience...

Waiting is hard, isn't it. But imagine waiting 2000 years for Scripture in your language! Thanks for your patience. And thanks for your generous support which will help bring the long wait to an end...
