Support the Orthodox Mission to Sierra Leone

In an earlier post I wrote about Orthodox missionary Fr. Themi titled, Fr. Themi: The Atheist Rocker Who Became an Orthodox Priest and Missionary In Africa . In that post I also mentioned the successful Orthodox mission to Sierra Leone which is lead by Fr. Themi. I want to remind my readers during this holy lenten season to support Orthodox missions.

I have been informed that Fr. Themi is seeking supporters for his mission both in the United States and worldwide. This can be done by sponsoring $10 a month (or more) by going to and clicking on the "Ezi Donate & Sponsor Worldwide" link. There you can sign up with your Credit Card. All funds are in AUD (Australian Dollars) so $10 is $8 to $9 USD (United States Dollars). So far in the US they receive $170 a month; more is needed to make this mission even more successful. All donations go to the charity, all workers are volunteers, and no one gets remunerated in any format.

At the website one can read more about this important ministry to the orphans of Sierra Leone, where your money is going, and sign up for the free newsletter. I also encourage everyone to check the various videos on Youtube at the website

Please pass along this information.
