Only one way in. Many villages in Papua New Guinea have only one way in – by air. When the planes circle over these strips, much of the community shows up in excitement. These airstrips are vital to the language development and Bible translation effort. Every year some strips have to be closed because of unsafe conditions. Ruts caused by water runoff, high grass, poor drainage, even ants can close a strip down until it is inspected and proclaimed safe again. The work falls on the community to keep the strip usable. Pray for the pilots that fly and for the communities that maintain these strips so that the work of Bible translation can continue.
