Cooked chickens, coleslaw and a $20 power card are some of the essentials Scripture Use worker Rachel Borneman carries when heading to remote communities. The supplies are her way of thanking Kriol-speaking believers for their hospitality, kindly welcoming and hosting her overnight after hours of driving.

Rachel often travels to Aboriginal communities such as Beswick, a 224km round trip from her base in the Northern Territory town of Katherine. Most of the journey is on unsealed road, the red dirt and dust swirling in her wake a stark contrast to the alternately green and beige landscape.

Rachel’s visits encourage people living in community to dig deeper into the Bible, and help improve literacy skills so they have the capacity to do so independently. Being in community also leads to innovative and creative Scripture projects.

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...
