Residents of a small Siberian village of Sosnovka, Omsk region, had no local church, so one good Samaritan decided to take the matters into his own hands.
Good Samaritan Builds a Church Out of Snow for Residents of a Small Villag

This tiny Orthodox church is made entirely out of snow. Granted, this is a temporary solution, but Siberian winters are long and freezing, so the building could stay intact well into April.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
