      OCMC ANNOUNCES 2006 MISSION TEAMS – “Put Your Faith in Action”!

      December 2, 2005

      The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC), St. Augustine, FL –The Orthodox
      Christian Mission Center’s 2006 Mission Teams are preparing to travel around
      the world. Participants will assist Orthodox communities around the globe on
      various projects.  OCMC short-term Mission Teams will travel to Alaska,
      Albania, Argentina, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Romania, Tanzania, and
      Uganda.  They will offer Christian witness to the Orthodox Faith, while providing
      service and support to numerous faithful.  Projects include teaching, youth
      ministry, renovation, construction, and health care outreach.


      Our team to Ethiopia will partner with International Orthodox Christian
      Charities (IOCC) to educate local health care providers working with people living
      with HIV/AIDS. The Kenya Team will assist in the construction of St.
      Panteleimon Orthodox Church in Lamou. The Tanzania Teaching Team will participate in
      evangelism and catechism seminars for young adults and church school teachers
      throughout the Diocese of Bukoba, and the Uganda Medical Team, based at the Holy
      Cross Hospital in Namungoona, will assist various medical clinics in nearby


      In Asia, the India Teaching Team will offer catechism to adults and youth and
      lead clergy seminars in Calcutta.  The team will also assist with daily
      outreach programs to the poor.


      In Europe, the Albania Mission Team will teach and assist in the daily
      activities and ministries of the Children’s Home of Hope in St. Vlash.  The Romania
      Health Care Team will provide substance abuse counselor training for the staff
      of the St. Dimitrie Project, and the Youth Outreach Team will help organize
      and participate in youth camps outside of Cluj.


      In Latin America, OCMC will send its first team to assist with construction,
      repairs and partial restoration of dwellings outside of Buenos Aries,
      Argentina.   The Guatemala Youth Outreach Teams will assist in the activities at the
      Hogar Rafael Ayau orphanage in Guatemala City.


      In North America, four mission teams will travel to Alaska.  The Orthodox
      Dental Team will provide basic dental care and oral hygiene education to villages
      on the Lower Kuskokwim River.  The Teaching Team will work in Port Graham,
      Nanwalek and Anchorage offering adult seminars and youth camps on the Orthodox
      Faith.  The Youth Ministry Team will offer an Orthodox youth camp for teenagers
      in the Kodiak Deanery.  A Construction Team will help the local community in
      New Halen complete the Transfiguration of Our Lord Church.


      In conjunction with the ongoing work and teaching projects, health care
      personnel are needed to help oversee the health of the mission team members,
      conduct medical clinics, and offer counseling and health instruction.  Most
      communities around the world do not have access to basic medical care or instruction,
      nor do they have the opportunity to visit with a physician or receive regular
      medical attention. 


      Orthodox mission teams make a difference.  Through work, witness, and
      worship, mission teams become a visible expression of love, unity, and support in the
      Church.  Mission teams require hard workers willing to participate and to
      share the Faith.

      to volunteer their services, time and talents on an Orthodox mission team,
