A Ratana nun wants to spread the church's message of peace and goodwill overseas.
A Sister of Mercy, Marama Nathan, says she's inspired by a world tour in 1924 by church founder, Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana.
Waatea News reports her hikoi some time in the next two years aims to take in at least 10 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America.
There will be only 100 places on the hikoi. Seven church bands are included.
