Mass baptisms took place on the 13th of June at Saint Athanasius Church in Meru, Kenya. The Bishop of Nieri and Mouth Kenya Mr. Neophytos, perfomed the Holy Sacrament of Baptism in the nearby river for several young children and older adults. On the same day, the Bishop of Nieri tonsured Mr. Patrick Mwiti to Reader.
The Bishop of Nieri and Mouth Kenya Neophytos stated:
“There is no greater joy in our mission work When new people come to the Orthodox Church and get Baptized . We also received back to the church those who had gone to other churches when the church was swept by the flood. St. Athanasius Church is the church by the river we built in two days not long ago. Continue praying for us and supporting our mission. God bless you all”.
