The Handasyde family are based in Ukarumpa, Papua New Guinea. Robert, a helicopter pilot, transports Bible translators, as well as equipment, supplies, and medical aid, to remote locations. Loralie works as an optometrist in the Clinic, alongside her primary role of caring for Emily and Michael.
Aviation is essential for the work of Bible translation in Papua New Guinea, a country with over 800 spoken languages. More than a quarter of these language groups still have no Scripture translations. Rugged terrain makes transportation and movement between people groups slow and difficult without air travel. Together Robert and Loralie are passionate about the task of bringing the message of Jesus to all people in a way they can understand.
They are thankful for your prayers, financial support, and encouragement as you share with them in this work. Please contact Robert and Loralie if you’d like to know more about being a part of this team.
