Have you ever wondered why Gideon-placed Bibles seem to be present, even in the very remote parts of our country? Well, volunteer members of the Gideons take them there.
Recently 5 groups of dedicated members set off in 2 caravans and 6 motorhomes to ensure that where accommodation for the travelling public exist in central and southwest Queensland, they would be supplied with Bibles. A total of 4,013 Bibles and Testaments were placed or personally handed out. In fact, they did so well that they ran out of some Scriptures and emergency supplies had to be taken out to Bourke for them to pick up.
They also had the opportunity to visit 23 schools, where a total of 1,861 New Testaments were distributed to students.
The combined travel distance travelled was approximately 56,000 km! The only incidents were two flat tyres and some battery problems.
Thank you to our members, and praise the Lord for his travel mercies!
