a children's book!

From: Teresa Kochamma

Greetings, friends ... relatives ... church folks ... co-workers...

I'm sending this out to everyone I can think of that has young kids, or
grandkids, or nieces or nephews - well, anyone who enjoys a good story with
a spiritual message.

Fr. John-Brian has just published a children's book, "What the Grub Found
Out." Actually, he wrote and illustrated this book back in 1992. But now
through Lulu Press, he was able to publish it.

"What the Grub Found Out" can be can be purchased as a regular book for
$10.63, or downloaded on to your computer for $2.50. It makes a great gift
for little ones ... hint, hint. ;)

Half (50%) of the proceeds from this book (as well as "Living in the Eighth
Day") go to mission efforts.

View or download the latest mission report, Holy Transfiguration Mission
2008, written in the words of members and those who participate and benefit
from the Madison area (Wisconsin) mission - (large file ~2M)

Love and Blessings!

    Transfiguration Mission 2008: a report in members words

    Peace be with you.

    There is a very nice full color 15 page report about our mission in Madison, Wisconsin in the words of the people who have participated and benefited from our efforts.

    Teresa Kochamma is a journalist and editor at the local newspaper. She gathered and arranged these pages out of the love she has for our missionand for the Orthodox faith.

    She felt not enough people really know of the positive work being done for the Orthodox faith in the Madison area. It is important to her that you have this information and to distribute it as you wish.

    This PDF file is large (~2MB) - too big to send to everyone. So, if you would like to have a copy and can handle a ~2MB attachment, we will be glad to email it to you. Another option is to view it or download it from the Yahoo Groups site for our mission email group. If you are a member of that group, you can access it at the URL: and look for
    "transfiguration mission 08.pdf " at the bottom of the list.

    If you are not a member, you can join by following the instructions at the group site

    If there is a problem with opening the PDF or with printing it, please let us know as soon as possible, sothat we can send a hard copy to you.

    Our beloved Makarios Thirumeni was familiar with our mission effort andimpact. Since he has passed to eternal memory this spring, it may behelpful for others to know us like he did.

    Please feel free to contact us with any questions. I am sure Kochamma wouldalso answer any questions you may have.

    Remember us in your prayers as we continue to labor in the Lord's vineyard.

    your servant,
