Trekking = A trek is a long, adventurous journey undertaken on foot in areas where common means of transport are generally not available.
While Todd was trekking through the highlands and valleys of Papua New Guinea, I was trekking through the Bible in the Philippines. We each were having our own adventures, which opened our eyes to many new and wonderful things.
Todd has been traveling since the end of January through Papua New Guinea to see the work, film some stories and recruit writers for the Asia-Pacific Website. He is now in Australia, and is touring the work there in several locations, doing much of the same thing. He is getting to know the people, hear their heart for spreading the gospel and hopefully catching some of that on film!
I attended a 4 day workshop held here on the APNTS campus with Ray Neu, Bible Trekking, and Woodie Stephens, Director SDMI.
With a great percentage of the population of our world not able to read for themselves, telling the stories of Jesus is the only way they will hear of Him. The training was to help us not only tell the stories from the Bible in an interesting way, but to then facilitating the discussion to help the listener glean the truths from the story for themselves which will help them remember those truths they found and be able to tell the story to others.
Our Media team here filmed the training for Ray and Woodie to use in helping train others. Not only were those of us attending the training being blessed by what we were discovering in the stories, but the media team was also! And they were putting the training they received while behind the cameras into action that week!
