After fifteen long hours of travelling, Father Silouan arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya Thursday, May 11. Met by Father Methodius (St. Barnabas Orthodox Orphanage & School) and Father Constantinos (St. Irene Orthodox Mission Center, Father Silouan was quickly whisked off to see the children who have been waiting and waiting to see him, one of their favorite people.
First stop was St. Barnabas where the children greeted him with smiles and hugs. “We are delighted to have him here,” said Father Methodius. Catechism classes were to be held the next day.
Next stop was St. Irene’s where Father Silouan and Father Constantinos shared serving meals to all the children.
In spite of the long flight, delays and tiredness, Father Silouan was as happy to see everyone as they were to see him, especially the children.
Keep Father Silouan in your prayers as he visits the various mission centers in coming months.
