Porto Astro
Porto Astro

Just north of Athens lies HM’s base of operations for its camp and maritime ministries, Porto Astro. Porto Astro is a rugged piece of land, approximately 5.5 hectares (13.5 acres), originally used as an olive orchard. HM has planned extensive development for this property, possibly housing a campground for refugee children where they could learn of the love of Christ, a conference centre to promote the Word of God, and much more.
 
Today, Porto Astro serves as the host site for HM’s Sports Camps and it also functions as a retreat center for church group outings. PA is the home base for HM’s sailing vessel – Morning Star. This 17 meter (55 ft) ship is used in a variety of ways, reaching the thousands of miles of Greece’s coastline and beyond, to ports throughout the Eastern Mediterranean.
 
There is plenty of work to be done as we develop this unique and beautiful property, however, and the support of brethren around the world is essential in accomplishing these things for the glory of God.
