Mr. Tyrone-Stavros Emery

Serving in Tonga

Tyrone-Stavros Emery, 42, is currently in-field serving the Orthodox Church in the Kingdom of Tonga, under the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of New Zealand & Oceania (Fiji; Tonga; Samoa). Stavros finished high school in Hawaii (Kahuku HS), undergraduate school in California (USC), and is also an alumni of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts (Class of 2008). A few previous work assignments of mine with the church were serving the Ionian Village summer camp program (2000-2005); assisting the ministries of Saint Nicholas Ranch & Retreat Center (Dunlap, CA; 2008-2009); and assisting in the parish life at Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church (Marietta, GA; 2010-2012); and my home parish of Saints Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral (Honolulu, HI). The first Orthodox church in the Kingdom of Tonga is currently under construction just outside the capital city of Nuku’alofa (Saint George Greek Orthodox Church & the smaller chapel of Saints Peter & Paul on the same property.) The baptised faithful in Tonga are currently few; the catechumens preparing for baptism are more; and may God be glorified as this church of Saint George nears completion, as the divine worship services become regular and the invitation to “come and see” is shared throughout the islands. Please pray for me; please pray for us; you are invited to be a support to my service here in Tonga- to be a co-worker with me in this field (navigate the links at the OCMC website to find out ways to support or be involved). My communication at the time of this writing is very limited with internet access, but God willing that will get better and I will share regular updates. Malo (thank you).

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
