Seemingly endless red dust, water crossings, mud, giant potholes, termite mounds and the jarring bumps of travelling unsealed roads are just some of the challenges for our workers in the Top End.
Our members involved in Bible translation and Scripture Use know how important it is to build relationships in person, and so they prepare themselves for long hours on the road, and the odd kangaroo, emu or cattle that may appear en route.
They rely on four-wheel-drive vehicles, equipped with communications, water and other provisions to help with whatever they may encounter along the way.
Yet the cost of reaching such remote areas, where a day’s journey is counted in the hundreds of kilometres, quickly adds up. $40 buys enough diesel to travel 100km, not including operating costs such as vehicle maintenance and safety equipment.
Could you help our members in the Top End like Rachel Borneman in their travels?
Our partnership target for 2020 is $4,000
$40 covers the diesel costs for 100km trip.
If we receive extra funds, this will go towards the following year’s target.
