Ryan Smith

Serving in Mexico

Ryan Smith is serving as Project Mexico’s first resident in the new St. Innocent Service Residency program stationed at St. John Orthodox Cathedral in Eagle River, Alaska. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Geography as well as experience after college in Sales. Having sensed a calling into missionary service for many years, Ryan has deeply explored this calling after converting to Orthodoxy three years ago. His personal spiritual growth is fueled by his desire to serve God and serve his neighbor. He spends the most time working at the Downtown Hope Center in Anchorage as well as the other service agencies at which he works in the residency program. Because of his extensive traveling experience, he was invited to go to Tonga in March 2020 with a small group of men to continue building the first Orthodox Church in Tonga.

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.
