Almost Home: An Update from Missionanry to Kenya, Meg Photini Engelbach

Christ is risen!Two years and four months ago I left home to come to Kenya. Now I'm leaving home to go to America. "Home" will be a new experience. My world has changed, and probably yours has too. Friends and family members have married and had children, and I wasn't there for that. Please forgive me and bear with me as I share my stories and listen to yours, and please keep me in your prayers as I return for my first "furlough." As I visit New...

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...

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.
