Partner: Evangelical Christian Church in Halmahera (Gereja Masehi Injili Halmahera, GMIH)
Project: Church speedboat
Amount needed: £22,982
Summary: The Evangelical Christian Church in Halmahera covers an area that consists of 781 islands, many of them inhabited but isolated. In order to effectively minister in the area, the church needs to be able to reach the islands. PCI donated a boat in 1985, named Siraya, meaning ‘a gift from the synod of Ireland’. At 35 years old, Siraya is getting old and needs to be replaced.
A new speedboat, including a radio, safety gear and some maintenance costs will cost around £23,000.
Please note that congregations wishing to support any of our special projects are honour bound to first meet their United Appeal target for the year in question.
