Some of the icons that were donated to the Orphanages in Africa required shipping, as they would not fit in Father Siluoan's luggage. The cost at the cheapest was $300.00 USD.

Welcome to OrthodoxAfrica.org
Orthodox Africa Mission Statement:
Our Volunteers intend to cooperate and collaborate with Non-Profit Orthodox Orphanages;
1. Saint Barnabas,
2. Saint Irene.
3. Saint Tabitha;
along with their priests, children and their communities with the intent to Glorify God using their Blessed talents to offer support with website design, business, art, fundraising, budgeting, plea letters, etc. in an attempt to further their outreach for donations and charitable support.
We as volunteers receive NO part of the donations and have NO overhead. We have set up an online donation system using PayPal which will assure direct donations to the orphanage, with the ultimate goal of being able to provide better support for the children and their families.
The donations are intended solely for the betterment of the children in areas of
-and to provide them with a loving environment.
We intend to work as a team, within the Orthodox beliefs of providing Christian charity, always presenting ourselves prayerfully, showing a warm, loving, tolerant manner and being as much as possible living examples of Christ in this world.
In Christ, Orthodox Africa

Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra (Russian: Троице-Сергиева Лавра "Troitse-Sergiyeva Lavra") is among the most renowned of the Orthodox monasteries in Russia. Situated next to the town of Sergiyev Posad, about 65 kilometers (44 miles) north east of Moscow, it was founded by St. Sergius of Radonezh the patron saint of Russia in 1340.

Father Silouan has just arrived in Kenya to visit the missions we are supporting attend the baptisms of many new Orthodox Christians and discuss plans for how we can help create business plans to allow our Orthodox Missions to be self-sustaining and free the priests we support from the burden of raising money so they can evangelize and spread the Orthodox Faith to the many souls in Kenya who are hungry for the Truth that God has revealed to us.
Please JOIN USfrom wherever you are and participate in this exciting mission. It doesn't matter where you are you can help spread The Truth of Orthodoxy.
Please follow our updates. We have many plans for the next month including running a mobile health clinic for 67 orphans who may not receive medical care otherwise.
Today Father Methodious, Father Agapios, Father Constantinos and
Father Silouan met with His Eminence ArchBishop Makarios of
Kenya, He stated that he was pleased with the work that we at
Orthodox Africa are doing extended his Blessing on our ministry in
addition His Eminence presented Father Silouan with a copy of the
Gospel written in English and Kiswahili and a number of other
books about the mission in Africa.
In unity we stand!!
Fr. Siluoan Has Arrived
safely in KENYA
On July 21st, 2016, Brave Father Silouan flew to Kenya to offer assistance to the priests that we support on ORTHODOXAFRICA.ORG. Our goal is for him to teach informal classes about the Orthodox Life, Monasticism,and the Orthodox Church around the world. Father Silouan spent the last few months raising funds so that we could provide these growing Orthodox missions with proper liturgical supplies such as:
Father Silouan visited Russia prior to flying to Kenya during which time he acquired these items at a lower cost so that any money that was donated could have it’s value maximized by lower purchase costs and by taking advantage of the current exchange rates in Russia.
Father is also planning on distributing whatever additional funds that are raised to help provide whatever is necessary for the orphanages that he will be visiting.
It is hoped that there will be several people who will be baptized and received into the Holy Orthodox Church during his visit.
Father Silouan will be arriving with small crosses and icons to give to the many orphans who we are currently caring for. Many of them feel alone and abandoned
Now they are all a part of a much larger family. First Church, then their new orphanage who have come to love and care for them. Even if they can't see us, we want the children to know that the priests, teachers, volunteers with them each day and all of you, love and pray for them, from all over the world, even though they may never meet you.
Please accept our invitation to participate in this mission opportunity and help further the Kingdom of Christ, and as always please remember us in your prayers.

Orthodox Africawelcomes with great joy, Saint Irene Mission. Father Constantinos Eliud and his Presbytera, Teresa provide food, clothing, shelter, education and spiritual guidance to 96 children in Kanyawa, Kenya. They are assisted by nine other teachers. It is our great privilege to have them join with us in bearing one another’s burdens, as our Lord, Jesus Christ encouraged us to do.
Matthew 25:37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
May 13, 2016 was an important day for the Orthodox Church of Africa and more so in Kenya. His Beautitude THEODORE, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, during his Pastoral visit to Kenya, came to the newly established Diocese of Nyeri to perform the Enthronement of His Grace NEOPHYTOS as Ruling Bishop of Nyeri and Mount Kenya at the Church of St. John in Thunguri.. His Beautitude rendered several Bishops of the Throne, Metropolitan MAKARIOS, Metropolitan IOANNIS, Bishop INNOCENTIOS and Bishop ATHANASIOS.

We now have 28 children in our mission who are Orthodox. 13 of them are staying in the mission. Abbah wishes liturgy everyday and prays for everyone. I therefore request you to help. How. ??
Try to convince only 30 of your friends or former workmates or school mates or family or neighbors to part with $20 every month to support the prayers.
Your generous gift would afford the mission to have:
In order to celebrate Divine Liturgy and leave a lasting effect on these children.
I need mean to travel to the mission very early everyday requiring that I employ a driver for the mission van.
$20 a day
These children will grow spiritually in ways we can never understand. These gifts will be lifelong. Our Mission intends to tend to their spiritual needs as vulnerable children; helping them find a safe place spiritually, building lifelong tools that will carry them through this sometimes very evil and violent world.
Now we need to care for their spiritual growth before they are away from us.
God Bless you all! In Christ,
Abbah Methodious of Saint Barnabas Mission
