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.

Then each of us led a discussion with the Albanian youth group leaders on each topic. I was so moved by the openness and...

Help New Orthodox Communities Around the World Grow and Thrive!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,Nestled in the lush green hills of Guatemala, thousands of Mayan people celebrated Pascha as Orthodox Christians for the first time this year. Most of the priests had never celebrated the Holy Week and Pascha services, and the choirs had never before sung the hymns. They, however, were not alone.

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.
