OCMC News - Help Continue to Build Up the Church in Northern Kenya

OCMC News - Help Continue to Build Up the Church in Northern Kenya
Join the OCMC Mission Team that will be serving in Northern Kenya from May 28th to June 12th and help build a school for the Turkana children of St. Peter in the remote village of Loupwala.

The deserts of northern Kenya, often seen as barren and desolate, are bringing forth life! Scores of the Turkana people that call this place home have accepted Christ and have been baptized into the Orthodox Faith. The message of the Gospel has been preached by a handful of Turkana priests who have been assisted by teams of Orthodox Christians from the United States. In the places they have witnessed, rivers that were once dry have begun to flow, hundreds have been baptized in these waters, and churches are being planted!

Of these mission team experiences, Mat. Suzanne Aleandro reflects, "“I have made five mission trips to Turkana. Each time I learn a little more, what it means to live in the present moment. How blessed to be with people who really understand Life”.

This year, another OCMC short-term mission team will work alongside our Turkana brethren of St. Peter Orthodox Church in the remote village of Loupwala to help build a school. This is a remarkable opportunity to answer your call to make disciples of all nations. Your efforts will not only see that children get access to education, but will also serve as a continued witness of Christ’s unfailing love.

Please prayerfully consider your participation in this team that will serve from May 28th to June 12th. For more information or to apply, visit http://www.ocmc.org/about/view_team.aspx?TeamId=152, call the Teams Department at 1-877-463-6784 ext. 140, or e-mail us at teams@ocmc.org.

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.
