The Moore Missionary Family Arrives in Mongolia!
The Moore Missionary Family Arrives in Mongolia!

Thank you so much for your prayers! We've arrived safely in Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia. We are doing well and adjusting to the 12-hour time change. Our 2-room apartment is lovely and came furnished. The past couple of days we've been purchasing kitchen items and a few appliances. It's been good to get out into the city for these excursions and for some general exploring. The mornings and evenings can be chilly (around freezing), but the sun comes out in the day and warms up to...

An Albanian Mission Team Experience (Part 2)
An Albanian Mission Team Experience (Part 2)

The title of the Youth Conference we held was "On Fire for God!" Youth group leaders from around Albania came to learn a tool to use with youth at their local parish. Using the theme of the first Hunger Games movie, along with the theme of fasting, we all shared a 24-hour juice fast. Each of the three team members presented on the topics of water, wheat, and fire. Then each of us led a discussion with the Albanian youth group leaders on each topic. I was so moved by the openness and...

An Albanian Mission Team Experience (Part 3)
An Albanian Mission Team Experience (Part 3)

The summary of the mission team to Albania is love and change. I mentioned before that I left for a mission to serve, but I wholly and fully feel as though I was the one changed. The entire OCMC experience was spectacular. You haven't lived until you have spoken through a translator! It is a wonderful feeling of interdependency and mutuality. I was a bit nervous upon planning and the eventual departing for the trip, but God's strength moved me forward. The OCMC preparations were...

Help Mission Priests Reach New Orthodox Christians Around the World!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,"Every day, everywhere you go, people are waiting to become Orthodox." This is how one Orthodox mission priest, Fr. Emmanuel, describes the experience of serving in northern Uganda. Despite the many years of civil wars, Orthodoxy has flourished in this remote area. Ugandan Orthodox priests travel all over to many villages and towns. With nearly every visit, more people are...

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.
