The cost is astronomical

Dear Editor,

So it’s opened. The E.F.K.S’s $17million building. This is an astronomical cost for a building with a 200 capacity. 

It appears the building is less than 10K sqm. If you break this down per square meter, it cost about $170K per sqm. Wow!

I know the money is from oversea church along with our own churches across our island but a conference building would be a better project. 

A building that will sit up to 5000 people that can be rented out for shows and other events.

Congrats to the E.F.K.S. 

Our children will be paying for this church along with their tuition.
