Seeking Partners to Albanian Children's Literature and Curriculum Program

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:10)

Anastasia Pamela Barksdale, M.Div., who was a long Term Missionary to Albania, is coordinating a special project through OCMC for the Albanian Children's Literature and Curriculum Program. With her experience in translating and publishing Orthodox books used for parenting, teaching and edification of the people, Anastasia & OCMC has formed a partnership with Dr. Maria Koury to publish her Christina series children's books in Albanian. The hope is to publish four books this year and four books next year.

Anastasia has received a matching grant from an Orthodox Foundation in Chicago, whereby she must raise $5,000 in order to receive the matching grant from them. To date, Anastasia has raised $3,000. She needs an additional $2,000. Anastasia is asking for partners who may be able to commit to $500 or $1,000 before the end June, as she needs to complete the grant application and will be returning to Albania will meet with the publication team and finalize our program for this year.

Please let me or Anastasia know if you are able to help, as she must submit the grant application soon.

Send funds to: OCMC, designated for the “Albanian Children's Literature & Curriculum Special Project”

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.

OCMC is a supported ministry of the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption
