Help Refugees from Ukraine! - 09/10/14

Dear brothers and sisters,

May I introduce you to Bogdan?

He’s a cute little guy. He loves playing hide-and-seek and watching cartoons.

He looks like a typical 4 year old. But Bogdan has already witnessed horrors that will likely affect his whole life.

Bogdan is a refugee from Eastern Ukraine. His grandmother was able to scrape enough money to flee the war-torn region with him. Bogdan’s mother and father, his sister Anya and his parrot Plut had to stay back.

When watching TV, Bogdan continually asks his grandmother: “Is he going to be killed? What about her? Is she safe?”

This 4-year old has already experienced grief and death, want and hunger... Night after night he screams with terror and calls for his mother. He may never see her again...

There are thousands stories like this one.

Jordanville update: How you touched lives at Holy Trinity Monastery - 07/31/14

Your tremendous response to our fundraising drive for Holy Trinity Monastery resulted in over $168,000 in assistance in 2013. Thanks to your generosity, the brethren have been able to make improvements in several areas of their life, which would not have been possible had they not benefited from your financial support.  Our mission prevents us from sponsoring repairs, but there was a lot of interest from our donors to help the monastery, so we agreed to help the brethren with day-to-day expenses, which freed up funds for the needed repairs. Here’s how you helped Holy Trinity Monastery in 2013 in the words of monastery accountant Hieromonk Theophylact.
