OCMC News - 5 Volunteers Needed to Teach English in Kenya

OCMC Is seeking 5 volunteers to join a team that will travel to Nairobi, Kenya to teach English to students studying at the Makarios III Seminary and the Orthodox Teachers College of Africa and the St. Clement of Alexandria School. Please contact the Mission Center for more information or to volunteer today!

There is a Chinese saying: “To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world.” An OCMC short-term mission team will be traveling to Kenya from October 27th to November 8th to teach English to students studying at the Makarios III Seminary, the Orthodox Teachers College of Africa, and the St. Clement of Alexandria School. Five more volunteers are needed to join this team and to present students in Kenya with a new window through which they can view the world.

By teaching English to our brothers and sisters in Kenya, you will be empowering them with a skill that can enable them to communicate globally. This new window could open up to opportunities in life that they would have otherwise been unable to realize. English is a global language – a bridge upon which people can journey as they grow both personally and spiritually.

The 2014 OCMC Kenya Orthodox Mission Team will be leading classes, tutoring students, and teaching the English language. The team will also incorporate Biblical and catechetical truths in lessons and offer conversational experiences with students who desire to learn English from native English speakers.

All travel in-country will be in Nairobi, one of Africa’s largest and most vibrant cities and the seat of the Holy Archdiocese of Kenya. This team is a great chance to experience Orthodox missions, a tremendous opportunity to explore Africa, and a unique privilege to enjoy fellowship with our Kenyan Orthodox brothers and sisters. Please consider applying today!

For more information or to volunteer, please visit http://www.ocmc.org, or contact Pres. Renee Ritsi by phone at 1-877-463-6784 x141 or by e-mail at teams@ocmc.org.

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.
