The Hargrave Family

Serving in Kenya

The Hargraves are preparing to serve as OCMC Missionaries in Kenya, East Africa.

Daphne and Deacon James served as long-term OCMC Missionaries with the Holy Archdiocese of Mwanza in Western Tanzania. Having discerned a need for Dcn James to receive solid theological education, they moved to Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, MA where James completed a Master of Divinity and was ordained Deacon.

In 2018 the Hargraves visited Kenya and were invited by His Grace, Bishop Athanasios of Kisumu and Western Kenya, of blessed memory, to serve the parish of St Moses in Kisumu city. St Moses, the only Orthodox Christian parish in a metro area of 1.5 million, was founded in 2018 and currently meets in a parishioner’s house.

While the Orthodox Church has a long history of ministry and evangelism in rural Kenya, nearly one-third of Kenyans— about thirteen million people— live in cities. The Hargraves hope to assist the Church in addressing the urgent need for a stable Orthodox Christian presence in a major East African city.

Pray for the Hargraves as they prepare to return to East Africa.

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.
