Their destination point is the Mali town of Timbuktu. Expedition Deep into Sahara starts in springs, press service of the Synodal Information Department reports on Friday.

After coming back from Africa, the Sinelnik brothers plan to go around the world on board the kocha – the Pomorskie wooden ship with an Orthodox chapel onboard.

Last year, they finished their four-year circumnavigation on board the old Russia Rusich boat From Russia to Australia: four oceans of the Earth. Descendants of Russian emigrants gave the brothers the Icon of St. Nicholas taken from Russia to Australia during the years of civil war and it accompanied them in their trip.

They stayed on Tasmania for some time to help local Orthodox community in building a church.

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.
