1 Corinthians 13:13

ROTE (Row-tay) is a small island in Indonesia with a small orphanage giving big hope to small children.
Rote orphanage provides a safe and loving environment for seventeen children.

Each year Hope Church Central Coast at Umina Beach supports the visit of a mission team to the island of Rote to continue our close ties with the orphanage. Mission team volunteers fund their own travel and along with Hope Church, they actively seek opportunities to support the people of Rote.


Hope Church would like to assist the process of making the orphanage safer by funding the construction of a security fence around the orphanage boundary.


Members of the 2014 Rote Mission Team will be riding bikes, scooters and skateboards in a combined 24hr relay starting at 4pm on Friday, 28th February, 2014, to raise funds for the building of the fence. You don’t have to ride but the team would appreciate your sponsorship to make the fence a reality.
