OCMC News - Fruit of the Orthodox Mission in Guatemala

OCMC News - Fruit of the Orthodox Mission in Guatemala
Missionary Jennifer Rice on her recent visit to OCMC!

This past week, we were blessed to receive our missionary Jennifer Rice here at OCMC. While passing through on her furlough, she shared some stories and updates from the mission field with us. Among her updates was the story of a girl named Mati.

Mati is an Orthodox Christian in Aguacate, and she is deeply involved in the Church. Through the presence of the Orthodox Church in the area, Mati has found many opportunities to grow and pursue her vocation. She has helped with the medical mission teams that have visited Aguacate, served as the choir director for her parish, and is now beginning nursing school. Thanks to Mati offering her talents, the Church is able to grow in Aguacate; and thanks to the Church, Mati herself is able to grow too.

When the Church is planted in the mission field, it transforms the whole community, granting its people ways to offer their God-given talents back to Him. Mati is just one example of the fruits of the Orthodox mission in Guatemala. Many others, in addition to her, are also constantly finding their way through the guidance, opportunities, and love of the Orthodox Church and its missionary efforts.

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.
