Can you see yourself on a Central Australian peak, looking out at incredible plains, valleys and lakes? Would you love to witness a fireball setting sun, and gaze up at a desert night full of stars? When you trek for Bibles with us you can make this come true as well as share God’s word. This August, join a like-minded group of people taking on Bible Society’s Larapinta Challenge. You’ll explore an amazing trail while raising funds for our Indigenous Bible projects.
When: 16 – 22 August 2021
Where: 74km of the Larapinta Trail, Northern Territory
Katrina Tjitayi’s heart language is Pitjantjatjara, a Western Desert language. She’s working to bring the whole Bible to her community, just like her mother who helped translate the New Testament into Pitjantjatjara. Katrina, taking on the mantle, is working on the Old Testament. She explains why it’s important to share the Bible in their words. “When somebody comes talking in English, the door is closed. But when we do our language, everything spiritual is opened.” The Bible in their words helps them share the gospel.
