Being a Word Rider Filipino style

A group of motorcyclists, the Word Riders, under the auspices of the Bible Society of South Africa, get together once a year for a week-long tour when they distribute Bibles to Grade 7 learners at schools in some of the poorest areas of our country. Inspired by this initiative, the Philippine Bible Society now also has a Word Riders group doing similar outreach work. Founder and organiser of the South African Word Riders, Francois Sieberhagen, and Word Riders veterans, Tony de Melim and Manfred Haarde, joined the Philippine Word Riders during a tour to the north of the country in November. Francois shares their experience.
