It's Not Too Late! Support Orthodox Missions this Lenten Season!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,It's Lent! Again!Lent can be hard. Especially the fast.But you know as well as I do, Lent is one of the greatest gifts God has given us Christians. Just as spring is a time when nature "wakes up," Lent is when we "wake up" spiritually. And find ourselves truly ready to receive the miracle of Pascha.I've enclosed a Quick Guide to Lent. It's no substitute for what your priest...

Laying a Foundation: 2016 OCMC Mission Team to Mexico
Laying a Foundation: 2016 OCMC Mission Team to Mexico

OCMC recently sent its fourth mission team of 2016 to San Esteban, Mexico, to support the faithful by offering simple catechism and the life-giving services of the Church. OCA Archpriest Antonio Perdomo of Pharr, TX, led the team of seven: Fr. David Moga (WI), Sbdn. Basil Almy (KS), Art Dossey (CA), Susie Almy (KS), Hannah Valentine (IA), and Fernando Arango (FL). This Pan-Orthodox group soon melded together in the warmth of shared vision and experience. I know without my team I would not...

Life in Kenya: Teaching, More Teaching, and Some Writing too!
Life in Kenya: Teaching, More Teaching, and Some Writing too!

Today is Thursday, so I was up early to make the drive to St. Paul's University near Limuru before the morning traffic totally clogged Naivasha Road, the main road out of our part of town. Normally I teach two Master's-level courses at St. Paul's on Thursday mornings – a course on the Atonement and another on Theology and Public Life. But I arrived today to discover that both of my students had illnesses in their families, which meant they couldn't make it to class. Before...

Orthodox Mission Team Opportunities Still Available!

Many people still do not know that, through the OCMC, the Orthodox Church sends and supports long-term missionaries and short-term mission team volunteers to preach and teach the Faith, minister to youth, provide healthcare, and help the Church grow around the world. Mission Teams recently returned from Kenya and Albania, where Team members led clergy, women, and young adult retreats and participated in evangelism. God is teaching the Team members; they learn about God through their experience, while offering a witness of their Orthodox faith. There are opportunities for everyone to bring the light of Christ to those who remain in darkness. To learn more about serving on an OCMC Mission Team, please visit www.ocmc.org, call 1-877-463-6784, or e-mail Teams@ocmc.org.

Planting More Seeds Among the Turkana: The 2016 OCMC Evangelism Team to Kenya

In the face of 100 degree heat, the shade offered by the large tree we approached was welcoming, but would the 90+ people already gathered beneath the tree be as welcoming? We had traveled by truck for more than four hours, a group of students from Holy Cross Seminary, a priest, a former missionary to Albania, several OCMC staff members, and the newly-ordained Bishop of the Kisumu Diocese, His Grace Athanasius, to share the Orthodox Faith with people in three villages OCMC had never before...

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.
