Οι ιεραποστολικές ομάδες των Ορθοδόξων Εκκλησιών ΗΠΑ-Καναδά (OCMC Orthodox Mission Teams) στηρίζουν την Ιεραποστολή στην Κένυα και στη ΒΔ Τανζανία (Ι.Μ. Μουάνζας)

(Οι Ορθόδοξες Εκκλησίες της Αμερικής στέλνουν ιεραποστολικές ομάδες σε διάφορες χώρες του κόσμου για να βοηθήσουν το ιεραποστολικό έργο. Οι ομάδες αυτές παραμένουν για ένα χρονικό διάστημα 2-3 εβδομάδων και καλύπτουν διάφορες ανάγκες. Όποιος Ορθόδοξος Χριστιανός ζει στις ΗΠΑ ή στον Καναδά, μπορεί να συμμετάσχει σε κάποια από αυτές τις ομάδες. Μάλιστα, όσοι συμμετέχουν, δεν καλύπτουν μόνοι τους τα έξοδα, αλλά μπορεί να τα καλύψουν άνθρωποι από την ενορία τους κλπ. Είμαστε στο έτος 2013 και ο θεσμός αυτός είναι ΑΓΝΩΣΤΟΣ ( σχεδόν ) στην Ελλάδα, στη Κύπρο, στη Σερβία, στη Βουλγαρία, στη Ρουμανία, στη Ρωσία, στην Ουκρανία, στη Γεωργία και στις άλλες τοπικές ορθόδοξες εκκλησίες...)

Vision for Kenya
To carry the Faith to new areas and tribes, develop the infrastructure of the Church, provide seminary education for clergy, translate materials into indigenous languages and minister to the poor.
Ministry Plan Goals
Most of OCMC’’s efforts are currently focused on the Turkan region of Norther Kenya where we are working with local clergy to welcome hundreds of new people into the Church. OCMC will support local clergy, evangelize and catechize the Turkana, help develop philanthropic ministries, further establish Church infrastructure, and prototype a translation program to make liturgical and theological texts more widely available.
2013 Strategies
  • Assess long-term missionary opportunities and recruit a long-term missionary for Turkana or translations.
  • Send a Mission Team to assist with the construction of a permanent church in Loupwala.
  • Recruit, train and send one Evangelism Mission Team to share the Orthodox Faith with more people among the Turkana and to provide catechism to the newly illumined.
  • Support social ministry projects that minister to the physical needs of the Turkana people including:
    - A well in Lokichar
    - A nursery school feeding program in Lodwar
    - The construction of an academy to provide schooling for children in Lodwar
  • Continue dialog with local clergy to identify additional income generating projects that encourage self-sufficient and self-propagating Orthodox Christian communities.
