A New Orthodox Parish in the Turkana Desert

It’s not every day you see the Gospel spreading to a totally new area of the world, to a culture and a people who have never even heard the name “Jesus.”

That’s precisely what’s been happening in a remote region of Kenya, where the Turkana people live.

As His Eminence Metropolitan Savas of Pittsburgh wrote on his Facebook page:

On Sunday, June 22, 2014, His Eminence Metropolitan MAKARIOS of Kenya consecrated a new church, dedicated to Apostle Peter, in the Turkana region at the northernmost part of Kenya. If you can’t spare the quarter hour for this video, at least please sample a few minutes of it, to see and hear for yourself the remarkably spirited way the Turkana have embraced Orthodoxy.

You can also learn more in this video, “A Journey of Faith,” about how missionaries from OCMC, our sister agency in the Assembly of Bishops, have supported and encouraged the growth of the Orthodox Church amongst the Turkana people.

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000
