Anointed man healed in Timor-Leste
Good news come from Chris, who is now in East Timor. While vsiting a community near the city of Suai, where about 40 people want to embrace Orthodoxy, Chris met with a young Timorese man named Orelleiu (Aurelius), who told him of the miraculous healing of some rare skin disease, from which he has been suffering for a long time – his body being covered with a rash. This healing happened shortly after Fr. Kirill came here from Taiwan in June and anointed him with the Myrrh emitted by the Hawaiian Iveron Icon of the Mother of God.
Aurelius showed Chris several healed scars on his chest; those remained as a reminder of the illness that had tormented him for many years.
Chris took with him from Taiwan a small icon, a copy of the Iveron Hawaiian Icon, and gave it to Aurelius, who in turn treated it like an invaluable treasure.
Let us thank Our Lady the Virgin Theotokos for Her prayers for us and for Her great mercy to all the faithful, who trust God and follow His Divine Will!

A parishioner of the Taipei Parish, Christopher Harmon, went on a trip to Timor-Leste (East Timor) for 2 weeks. His goal is to meet with the Timorese who are willing to become Orthodox.
Already more than 100 people in Timor-Leste have expressed a desire to become Orthodox. In response to their requests, the parishioner of the Taipei Parish of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross took the initiative and volunteered to help in this matter. He will meet with all those wishing to accept Orthodoxy, tell them more about the Orthodox faith and life, and assess the situation.
Following the example of the apostles, every Orthodox Christian is called to witness his Faith, to tell everyone that Christ is the true and only Savior, to share his religious experience with those around him, as well as those far away.
Let us pray for Christopher and for everyone who wish to embrace the Holy Orthodox Faith in this distant and beautiful country!
