Hello OYMT 2017 Team Members,
Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!
We are pleased to let you all know that our 2017 Orthodox Youth Mission Team has been finalized. Attached you will find a list of youth and adult leaders who will be participating in our mission trip to Napaskiak, Alaska through the OCMC July 7-18, 2017. This year’s team is comprised of 20 youth and 6 adult leaders from 6 parishes in 3 jurisdictions of the Orthodox church. We are grateful and excited that all of you have stepped forward to participate in this amazing opportunity to serve and put our faith to work! Please use the team list to begin praying for one another and for our mission work, that we may develop a fuller understanding of mission and deepen our relationship with our Lord, each other and those we will serve. Please also begin to pray for Fr. Vasily, the priest of the community we will be serving, as well as the people of Napaskiak and Oscarville. We will be sending the names of our team members to Fr. Vasily and asking him to pray for us as well.
Next up: see you this Sunday, December 4th at Holy Trinity in Danbury for our fundraising kickoff from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Please bring your covenant, medical form/permission slip and $150 deposit if you have not already turned these in. (Forms are available on our website: www.oymt.info.) Also, bring $5 for dinner.
Looking forward to seeing all of you Sunday and beginning our work together!
