OCMC News - Help the Church Empower People to Become More Self-Reliant

OCMC News - Help the Church Empower People to Become More Self-Reliant
Join OCMC in helping the Church in Albania train farmers in beekeeping and honey production. Your gift will help families become more self-reliant and better able to care for themselves and their communities.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

The recent global economic crisis left people in some of the world’s poorest countries feeling extremely vulnerable. Regions that relied heavily on aid from places like the United States and Europe saw that support vanish almost overnight. Many, including those in the Church, have come through these challenging times committed to being more self-reliant. In places like Albania you can help!

Through an initiative, run by Diakonia Agapes and with the blessing of His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios, the Church in Albania aims to train farmers in beekeeping and honey production. They have asked the Orthodox faithful of North America for $7,000 to help underwrite this initiative.

Your support will have a significant and lasting impact on farmers of the Elbasan District of Albania, where there are 11 villages made up of just over 1,000 families. Many of these families rely on farming as their livelihood. By helping to impart new skills onto these farmers, they will be better able to support themselves and the Church. You can help empower these families with a gift to the OCMC in support of this important project.

Please click on the “SUPPORT MISSIONS” button or go to http://www.bit.ly/1oOvHcr to make a gift of $50, $100, or more. Your donation will impact the lives of our Albanian brothers and sisters for years to come.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and for strengthening the worldwide Orthodox Church through your support!

In Christ,

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center

P.S. Through this training, families can increase their income by 50%! Each farmer that is trained can become a model for other farmers to mirror. Through this project, the Church can dramatically increase the self-sufficiency of the people.

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.
