Rough waters are much easier to face with a good boat and safety gear.
The only way to a village might be canoeing across open ocean. Or catching a crowded, run-down boat out to an island. Most vessels don’t even have life jackets. With the right help—whether it’s a safety kit, a small boat, or a large vessel for a whole region—translation teams can stay safe on the water.
How JAARS Fits In
We visit our partners, assess their travel challenges, and help them choose the best boats for their situation. If they need a large boat, we’ll help them plan, launch, and run the program. We also teach people how to swim, use safety gear, and give first aid.
How You Can Help
Thanks to incredibly generous people like you, we're now only $7,089 away from our initial goal. Praise God! This vessel is key for training churches, creating audio Scriptures, teaching people to read, and more in the Torres Strait—where many scattered island communities will receive the New Testament in their own language next summer. Thanks to everyone who has prayed for and given toward this project in the last few weeks. We can't wait to see how God will use this vessel, and we'll share updates all along the way.
Our deepest thanks to everyone who has given toward the Vessel for the Torres Strait in the last month. Praise God, we’re now only $31,559 away from our initial goal, which will provide for purchasing, outfitting, and operating this vessel for the first seven months. Compare that to the $169,000 we were praying for just a few weeks ago!
- Pray that God will bring together all the pieces needed to make this boat program successful. Many decisions, both large and small, still need to be considered in the coming months.
- Ask God to provide the right team to serve on this boat during the next three years.
- Pray for the Torres Strait Islanders, that God would prepare their hearts to receive and embrace the Bible in their language as it arrives next year.
