The Story of Guatemalan Orthodoxy

Please continue to pray for all of us who work in the mission field, offering special prayers for our hierarch His Eminence Athenagoras who cares for an extensive metropolis that includes Mexico and Guatemala, all of Central America and the Caribbean, as well as Colombia and Venezuela. Please also pray for our vicar, Archimandrite Fr. Evangelios, and the other Guatemalan clergy: Fr. Mihail Castellanos, Fr. Alexios Sosa, Fr. Daniel Muxtay, and Fr. Blas Lorenzana. Thank you for your love and support for Orthodoxy in Guatemala and Latin America!
