Walking in God’s Footprints
By Christine Furby and Darlene Grace
Looking out into the night, a smile flickered across his face. ‘Yes, these good words’, he murmured. These words were not only good because they were the Word of God. They were doubly good because they were communicated in Garrwa and speaking to him in a way that he had not heard before … He eagerly waited for the day when the completed translation of the Scriptures would be available in the Garrwa language so he could fully share these ‘good words’.
This was Wallaby Roy’s experience after Wycliffe New Zealand members Ted and Christine Furby were called to the Northern Territory to work among the Garrwa Australian Indigenous people. Along with Wallaby Roy, there are many other inspiring stories of individual Garrwa people and their families woven into Ted and Christine’s journey.
You will find it hard to put this well-crafted book down as you read about the Furbys’ call to help the Garrwa with Bible translation and teaching literacy skills. Transport yourself to the red dirt of the Top End and immerse yourself in these real life stories of lives transformed by the power of hearing God’s Word in the language which speaks to the Garrwa people’s hearts.
As Wycliffe New Zealand Executive Director Robert Lovatt says, Walking in God’s Footprints is a ‘fresh and fascinating account of how God calls ordinary people like Ted and Christine on a journey of faith and obedience that results in the most unexpected and extraordinary outcomes’.
Christine (Chris) Furby passed away in early March 2021. We send condolences to her family and friends. Praise God for the work that has been achieved through her faithful service. From 1968, Chris ministered in Northern Australia, where she met and married Ted. They translated the Garrwa mini-Bible (more than half of the New Testament and a panorama of the Old Testament) before returning to New Zealand in 1983. Ted died in 1987. Chris continued to work on Old Testament passages into her retirement.

The Chris Kilham story
By Sandra More
Chris Kilham’s story is remarkable. She did not let physical limitations, the isolation of the Australian Outback, or cultural barriers stop her from serving her Indigenous friends and the community of Aurukun with passion.
As a talented artist, Chris captured the Aboriginal people and the surroundings of the community in beautiful pastels, many of which are included in the book. Chris recalled:
The smiles of the dark-skinned children captivated me – they still do. The colours of the tropics; the blues, the greens, the reds, all more intense than the colours of home – it was magic!
Chris’s adventure in the Outback is marked by courage, faith, passion, academic achievement and great respect and love for her Indigenous colleagues as together they translated the Wik Mungkan New Testament.

Taking the Word to the desert people
By Amee Glass AM
Foreword by Barry Borneman
What do faithfulness, patience and perseverance look like in cross-cultural mission? Amee Glass’s firsthand account of her own mission experience in outback Australia helps to answer that question.
In 1963, The Mission Council assigned Amee and her friend Dorothy Hackett to the Warburton Ranges in the central desert area of Western Australia. Forty-five years later, Amee, Dorothy and the Ngaanyatjarra people celebrated the dedication of the Ngaanyatjarra Shorter Bible.
This book chronicles Amee and Dorothy’s journey to learn the local language and translate the Bible. It also provides a glimpse into the interactions between the Ngaanyatjarra people, the Christian mission and the gospel. It is a fascinating read about the dedication and commitment of two friends who grew to love and be loved by the community. Among other things, it celebrates a people learning to read in their own language for the first time.
