Missionaries to set up Orthodox communities of migrants in Moscow

admin | 16 January 2014

Moscow, January 15, Interfax – Orthodox missionaries held an action among migrants in Moscow.

It started on December 31. During the week, over 40 people distributed several thousands of leaflets about Christ and necessity to baptize and discs with the Gospels in Uzbek, Kyrgyz and Tajik, organizers told Interfax-Religion on Wednesday.

Besides distributing leaflets, missionaries spoke with migrants about foundations of the teaching, distinctions of Orthodoxy and Islam.

“The action was held in atmosphere of love, there were no critical commentaries from the migrants who received the materials, on the contrary, many of them sincerely thanked the missionaries and made photos with them,” the interviewee of the agency said.

Today missionaries work to organize Kyrgyz, Tajik and Uzbek Orthodox communities in Moscow where prayer services will be held every week and sections to study Bible and conversations in native for migrants languages.

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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
