The Yonif MR 412 Task Force Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Moch. Renaldy Herbowo, in his statement received here on Sunday, explained that his task force's contributions were in the form of six church bell towers.
The six towers were officially handed over through a series of worship activities, such as the stone burning tradition, which served as a sign of gratitude.
"The key procession of the church's bell tower was held simultaneously in six locations in Lanny Jaya District," Herbowo said.Baca Juga: Ketahui, Tidak Semua Jenis Penyakit Ditanggung BPJS, Apa Saja?
He also hoped that the bell towers will bring benefits and peace among the church congregations in Lanny Jaya District.
"Hopefully, the sounds of these bells can be a facility to call the congregation to come to worship, so that peace in the land of Papua is looked after. This is the Indonesian Defense Forces' (TNI's) purpose here, we come for peace and love the people of Lanny Jaya," he said.
According to him, the construction of these bell towers was initiated due to the shortages of church facilities. Back then, people only used a piece of metal and old oxygen tube for the bells, making some churchgoers were often late coming to the service.Baca Juga: Tiga Tahun Berturut-turut, Jawa Tengah Raih Rekor Kategori "Hijau" di Survei Penilaian Integritas
