OCMC News - OCMC Missionary Tyrone Stavros Emery Arrives in Tonga
Please pray for OCMC Missionary Tyrone Stavros Emery as he begins his missionary service in Tonga

Tyrone Stavros Emery, OCMC's newest long-term missionary, arrived in Tonga on June 27 to begin his missionary service. He is serving at St. George Orthodox Church, currently under construction just outside of the capital city of Nuku’alofa, which is the first Orthodox church in the Kingdom of Tonga. The priest there is Fr. George Pillay, who is of Indo-Fijian descent. Stavros’ responsibilities will include pastoral assistance, liturgical and choir assistance, catechism, outreach, and evangelism.

Stavros is joining Fr. Paul and Pres. Katerina Patitsas, missionaries based out of New Zealand, as part of the OCMC’s growing efforts in the South Pacific to help plant the Church in New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, and Samoa. Please keep these missionaries and their efforts to share the Orthodox Christian Faith in your prayers.

The need for long-term missionaries in this part of the world is ever growing. Please prayerfully consider joining Stavros and the Patitsas family as a long-term missionary. Contact the OCMC Missionary Department by e-mail at missionaries@ocmc.org, or by phone at 904-829-5132, to learn more.

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.
