Lutheran evangelist of more than 40 years, Tjuki Pumpjack, died at Imanpa on 7 September 2015. Born in 1924, Tjuki was a great leader and helper for his people.
Unfortunately he was never ordained because he found it difficult to read and write in English or his own language (Pitjantjatjara). However, like the famous Arrarnta evangelist, Moses Tjalkaborta, Tjuki knew many Bible stories, songs and prayers off by heart, enabling him to lead or assist other pastors with regular Sunday worship and devotions at Imanpa and Angas Downs for many years.
Please pray for his wife Rosie, and their family as they mourn his death, and the people of Imanpa that God will raise up another person to lead their worship.
