Getting from here to there can be challenging at times in Papua New Guinea. Sometimes the only way is on foot. Even if they fly to an airstrip, it is not unusual for language development workers and Bible translators to have to complete their journey with a several hour hike. It would not be unusual for these hikes to require fording dangerous rivers and walking on steep, slick trails. In some locations there might be a helicopter landing spot but it may be too expensive to fly there. Walking is definitely cheaper! But walking is time consuming, limits the amount of supplies a linguist can bring to the village and can be dangerous. This may also prevent families from going to the village together. Pray that as language projects are identified and work begins that enough resources would be made available so that workers could get in and out of the locations without long and dangerous hikes.
