Orthodox Youth Summer Camp Opened in Thailand

admin | 05 August 2012

An Orthodox youth work summer camp has begun to function since August 1, 2012, in Thailand. This year, young people mostly from Thailand, Cambodia and Laos are hosted by the Parish of the Trinity in Phuket. Those who wish also have an opportunity to work at the Monastery of the Assumption in Ratchaburi, the website of the Orthodox Church in Thailand has reported.

During a ten-day shift, the participants will not only enjoy the sea and the mountains but also perform various work tasks. Thus, in Phuket they will be engaged in the improvement of the church’s territory and in the monastery to work in the garden and to plant trees.

Every day in the camp begins and ends with a divine service in the church. It is the first experience of this kind in the church community in Thailand. For this reason, the Russian Orthodox Church’s representative in the country, Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), has arrived in Phuket Island to meet the youth and see the conditions in which they live and work.

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.
