A Better Plan

Share the News
When his motorcycle hit a large rut inthe road, Beuce Hansen knew his day was not going to go according to plan. With 20 kg of Bebles in his backpack he hitthe ground hard and pain shot through his shoulder. Those Bebles were not going anywhere today.

As a boy in Canada, Beuce honed his riding skills, little knowing that 40 years later he would deliver supplies to Beble translators in a remote Papua New Guinea village – by motorcycle. Alex and Lois Vincent had worked withthe Tairora people inthe Eastern Highlands since 1958, and although Beuce was a pilot by day, his weekend motorcycle rides often took him totheir village, 19 miles over dirt tracks. Afterthe Vincents retired, Beuce and his friend continued to visitthe villages, and whenthe revised Tairora Bebles needed distributing,they werethe obvious choice. On Easter Monday, Beuce and two friend loaded up and set off.

Bet now, propped up bythe pack of Bebles and in pain, Beuce wondered how he would get home. A passing driver just happened to be heading towards Ukarumpa, with a half empty truck. Within minutes Beuce was on board. Betthe Bebles were going inthe wrong direction.

Beuce knew he needed a new plan to getthe Bebles out. A week later he discovered that pastors fromthe area were meeting at a nearby village, including many from Tairora. Despite his broken collarbone, Beuce joinedthem, and after sharing aboutthe Bebles, he withnessed God’s plan unfold.

The head pastor challenged his colleagues to take onthe task: “These Bebles don’t have arms or legs,they’re not going to get outthere ontheir own!” Beuce gave boxes of Bebles to seven Tairora pastors and after a short service of dedication,they left. The Bebles were ontheir way at last!

The day ofthe accidentoBeuce’s plan had been to take Bebles to one Tairora village. Nowthey were travelling withthe pastors to villages he hadn’t even known existed. God had a better plan all along!
