2017 Mission Team Opportunities - Albania (Youth) and Guatemala (Healthcare)

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center has just released 2017 short-term mission team opportunities!

There is a team heading to Albania March 10 – 20 which will work with Albanian Orthodox youth leaders, including OCMC Missionary Dn. Stephanos Ritsi, to host a youth and young adult conference. The conference will focus on strengthening the faith of young Orthodox Christians throughout Albania. It will also seek to raise awareness of youth ministries available through the Albanian Orthodox Church. If you have a passion for youth ministry or desire to contribute to the awareness of Orthodoxy around the world, please prayerfully consider applying!

There will be a healthcare team going to Guatemala March 17 – 26 which will provide medical services to patients at the Fr. Andres Giron Clinic in Aguacate. This is a fantastic way to use your skills as a healthcare professional for the Orthodox Church. Not only will you provide medical care, but you will also help educate the community about healthcare. Pediatricians, dentists, midwives, nurses, and other medical technicians are needed. Healthcare professionals can give the gift of hope and healing by volunteering; please consider this opportunity!

St. Timothy the Apostle (January 22)

Since thou hadst been instructed in uprightness thoroughly and wast vigilant in all things, thou wast clothed with a good conscience as befitteth one holy. Thou didst draw from the Chosen Vessel ineffable mysteries; and having kept the Faith, thou didst finish the course, O Hieromartyr and Apostle Timothy. Intercede with Christ God that our souls may be saved. (Apolytikion in Tone 4)

 

 

Wisdom

"If you see your neighbor sinning, take care not to dwell exclusively on his faults. Try to think of the many good things he has done and continues to do. Many times when we do this, we come to the conclusion that our neighbor is a far better person than we are." -- St. Basil the Great
