OCMC News - Double Your Impact with a Gift to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center!

OCMC News - Double Your Impact with a Gift to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center!
Make a donation today and double the impact you'd have in places like Indonesia by taking advantage of a matching gift!

Dear Brothers and Sisters and Christ,

I have some VERY good news for you.

Today, your gift can double. You can do TWICE as much to build and strengthen our Orthodox Church around the world.

How? Matching funds.

Some long-time friends of the ministry have given a generous $5,000 challenge grant. They have agreed to match every dollar raised by this appeal, up until we match their $5,000.

You’ll want to take advantage of this, because here’s what it means for you:

  • If you give $100, it can double to $200 to support Orthodox Missions.
  • Your gift of $200 can turn into $400.
  • Or if you can give $500, it can become $1,000!

Any amount you can give will do so much to build our Church! I urge you to give right away to make sure you double your impact. That $5,000 will be reached quickly.

You will help spread the Orthodox Faith. That’s exactly what Christ told you and me to do!

Your donation will start and support vital ministries where churches are growing. You’ll help spiritually hungry people find the blessings of Orthodoxy. You’ll equip priests. You’ll train lay leaders to be the pillars of support that make churches strong...

And because of these matching funds, you’ll do twice as much.

Let me give you an example of how your gift plays out:

One of our priests at work in Indonesia was approached by a Hindu man. “My son suffers from seizures,” he told the priest. “I have prayed to my gods, but he is not getting better. Will you pray to your Christian God?”
Our priest agreed to pray for the boy, and God worked a miracle. Today, that boy is seizure-free.

But that’s not all. The family was so amazed by God’s power and moved by the relationship they developed with the priest that they all became Christians. They are now members of a small but growing Orthodox church on their island.

That’s how it works when you donate to OCMC. In a place like Indonesia, it’s all about being there. Loving people. Being willing to pray. Doing the liturgy and sacraments.

When you give, you make it all happen. You build the Orthodox Church. In Indonesia and around the world.

The Feast of the Holy Cross is coming up. It’s when we think about the power of the Cross — how it is the instrument of our salvation. Jesus said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Here’s something worth knowing: for you and me, part of taking up your cross is supporting missions — building the Church.

So please — if you can, send your gift today. Give now while your gift will do twice as much good.

Building the Church with You,

Fr. Martin Ritsi
Executive Director

P.S. Remember, every dollar you give to help build the Church will be doubled by matching funds. Rush your gift into action today! God bless you.

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.
