Word Riders Visit UHS

There was much excitement at Union High School on Friday morning, 12 April, as a group of 31 motorcyclists – the Bible Society of South Africa’s Word Riders – arrived at the school.

Their visit was part of an annual week-long tour during which these Christian motorbike enthusiasts travel to different parts of South Africa distributing Bibles to schools.  During their visit to the school, the Word Riders brought with them a message of hope and boxes filled with Bibles, as well as booklets explaining how the Bible should be read, which were distributed among the school’s Grade 7 learners.

According to the Bible Society’s communications officer, Leon Steenkamp, the donation of the Bibles was made possible by the Bible Society’s Bibles for Grade 7 Learners Project, as well as funds that were raised by the bikers themselves.

Steenkamp invited people who would like to learn more about this tour or who would like to become involved with the Bibles for Grade 7 Learners Project to contact the Bible Society of South Africa at 021 910 8777 or send an e-mail to biblia@biblesociety.co.za
