We’ve all been impatiently waiting for a whole year, and now everything is starting to happen at once! If fundraising progress continues at the current rate, then Father Silouan will be ready to depart for the Philippines in about a month. He cannot leave until the support budget is raised, so if you have been planning to make a pledge, either online or via your parish, please contact us so we can count your pledge toward total monthly support. We are so thankful for the partners whose monthly faithfulness is making this mission possible! May God reward and bless you for your participation in serving the Orthodox faithful and inquirers in the Philippines.
