Ms. Anastasia Pamela M Barksdale

Serving in Albania

Anastasia Pamela Barksdale, M.Div., is a graduate of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. She served as a long-term missionary teaching Christian Education at the Resurrection of Christ Theological Academy at Shen Vlash Monastery in Durres, Albania, and offered research assistance to Archbishop Anastasios, Primate of the Orthodox Autocephalous Church of Albanian from 2008 to 2016. Today Anastasia continues her long-term missionary service with OCMC and works directly with the Orthodox Church of Albania’s Spirit of Love Foundation as the Executive Director. The Spirit of Love Foundation is the non-profit organization that oversees their private schools and preschools, as well as their philanthropic efforts under Diakonia Agapes.

Pamela resides full-time in Albania and continues to be the missionary liaison for the Orthodox Children’s Home of Hope in Durres, and coordinator of the annual summer camp and short-term team. She continues to coordinate several Special Projects under the OCMC umbrella: the Albanian Catechism Program at the Seminary, Playgrounds for Preschool Children, and a scholarship fund for the Spirit of Love High School in Gjiokaster (a Greek minority area). These ministries help build up the Church in Albania and witness the love of Christ to many people who still do not know Christ Our Lord.

Anastasia thanks all of her prayer partners and supporters and asks for your prayers for her continued work in Albania.

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.
