Dear Friends of Mission,
It is with great joy and gratitude that I contact you, since I know your charitable heart and great interest in the advancement of the Orthodox Missions.
My brothers, let me ask you, is spiritual fruition in our diocese possible if the roofs of our churches are hole-ridden? Definitely not.
Good-hearted Christian brothers, fellow Cyrenians in the ministry of love, I regret to announce that one historical church of our Patriarchate in Beira, Mozambique – which has been entrusted to my care, built with toil and sacrifices by Orthodox Christians 110 years ago, has suffered great damage from the deadly cyclone that struck the region.
We kindly knock on the door of your hearts and ask in sorrow and pain. Please help us to the extent possible with the restoration of this holy church so that sacred services can be celebrated there seamlessly and souls can be driven into the eternal kingdom of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
We thank you in advance for your prompt, earnest interest and support to our struggle.
