Goroka, Papua New Guinea
Six new Yamaha AG200 motorbikes have been presented to district directors in the Eastern Highlands Simbu Mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Papua New Guinea.
. . . district directors should double their pace of work using these motorbikes, especially in disciple making.
The cost of the bikes to the Mission was K78,000 ($A26,000). “The amount that was used to purchase these motorbikes is equivalent to the amount for three pastors’ annual wages,” Mission chief financial officer Joshua Wambillie said. “So district directors should double their pace of work using these motorbikes, especially in disciple making.”
The Mission has 17 districts. The motorbikes were given to the district directors who care for big areas—with frequent travel on rough mountain roads and bush tracks. A prayer of blessing was offered by Mission president Pastor Benny Soga and Mission secretary Pastor Danny Philip as the motorbikes were formally presented to the district directors.
