In a faraway country in Africa, Mwangi lives in a small village where he helps his mother with their family. He yearns to go to school, where the world will open up for him. One day an Orthodox priest arrives in Mwangi's village, and everything changes . . . As an overseas missionary with the Orthodox Christian Mission Center for many years, Presbytera Rene Ritsi tells this heartwarming story from the standpoint of her extensive knowledge of both African culture and Orthodox mission work. Mwangi tells a story of the hope Orthodoxy offers to people who have never heard the Gospel message.
