Dear Mission Friends and Supporters,
For many years we had been receiving the gifts of love of late blessed Fr. Panteleimon Poulos, who sent us considerable aid, food, church items and anything you can imagine. To our dismay, he suddenly left for the Heavenly Kingdom last August in order to experience the joy and blessing of the benevolent God. All of our clergy and the Christian world, particularly thοse benefited by the Mission as well as the its working staff, are in deep grief and sorrow for this great loss.
We turned to your love, which we received many times in the past, and we made an earnest appeal to you for a 12-meter-container with various items, food, church supplies, and other useful stuff.
Once again you amazed us with the fervent zeal and love you showed to our poor dark-skinned brothers. In no time you organized and sent a large 25-ton-container with significant humanitarian aid for the indigenous people here.
May the holy God always bless the work of the Orthodox Missionary Fraternity.
✝Meletios of Katanga
