Orthodox monastery flooded in Thailand.

The heavy rain has flooded an Orthodox Christian monastery in the Thai province of Ratchaburi.

The water level in the monastery has reached 70 centimeters. Although it has now stopped raining, the water level continues to rise, the office of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand has reported.

"Considerable surface damage of the buildings is probable. The supply lines, including the sewage system, have been damaged. Electricity is off. There is a direct threat to the community garden, grass, bushes, and some types of trees, for which a large amount of water can be harmful. The garden was under the special care of the monks and pilgrims always admired its beauty," the report says.

The damage to the monastery is estimated at between $10,000 and $20,000 if the water levels begin to fall and the costs will be much higher if the water levels continue to rise.

The monks and monastery workers living in the monastery are doing everything possible to improve the situation. Some monastery workers from Russia, who are temporarily living in the community, have postponed their departure and will stay in Ratchaburi until the work to deal with the aftermath of the natural calamity is completed.

Archimandrite Oleg Cherepanin, who represents the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, has called on his flock to provide financial and physical assistance to the monastery.

Dusit, 10300, Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.
Tel.+(66) 81-7325021

Because of many inquiries from the Orthodox Christians in Thailand and nearby countries with concern about the health of archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), Representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, the Representation in Thailand is making an official statement to explain the situation:

On June 30, 2013, during father Oleg's visit to Hua Hin town, where a new Orthodox church is planned to be built, he had an attack of fever and high temperature. Father was taken to a nearby Hua Hin Bangkok Hospital for emergency treatment. Since blood samples showed a highly negative result, it was decided to move him urgently to Bangkok city.

Full-scale medical tests confirmed the diagnosis – dengue fever 3rd type. There was a danger that the infection might lead to a toxic shock syndrome, and the doctors insisted on keeping father Oleg in bed, providing intensive treatment as well as limiting any visitors and even phone calls or emails.

Thanks to the high level of medical services the disease was cured in 10 days. Archimandrite Oleg was allowed to move home, but prescribed to stay in bed and to limit work activities until he is fully recovered.

Father Oleg asks everyone not to worry about his hospital bills, which are covered by his Thai insurance plan, as well as any excess payments.

Archimandrite Oleg apologies to all whom he was not able to visit during those days. He thanks everyone for showing him true Christian love and care and invokes on them God's blessing.

This month archimandrite Oleg has scheduled visits to Samui and Phuket islands in Thailand, as well as to Indonesia, Laos and, if circumstances allow, Cambodia. Thus there are no grounds for any special concern about his health at the moment. Yet, constant prayers about his wellness are very welcome.

Charity gift by Siam Commercial Bank.

Siam Commercial Bank recently handed over large amounts of bottled drinking water to the Foundation of the Orthodox Church in Thailand, to be distributed among financially disadvantaged Orthodox believers in the Kingdom. Thai residents with low income, especially in provincial areas, are often drinking poor quality water, which is very dangerous in the tropics. The donation was accepted by archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), Representative of Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, and priest Danai (Daniel) Wanna, the Chairman of the Foundation. Archimandrite Oleg assured the donator that the water will be shipped into parishes and given out to the needy as soon as possible.

Thai citizen embraced Orthodoxy.

On Sunday June 16th archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), Representative of Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) in Thailand, administered a Sacrament of Baptism over Ms. Hataipat Phungpumkaew. She took a Christian name of Daria, in honor of St. martyr Daria of Rome.

For the last 6 months Hataipat has been a regular parishioner at St. Nicholas church in Bangkok and a student of Orthodox faith. One of the important steps in her joining the Church was reading a Thai translation of Law of God, a famous Christian book by archpriest Serafim Slobodsky.

At the same day Daria took part in the Communion. Archimandrite Oleg congratulated the newly baptized member and presented her with an icon of the Savior and the Mother of God.

Hataipat Phungpumkaew was born in Chiang Mai in lawyers' family. Earned a Bachelor's degree in Politics from Chiang Mai University and a Master's in Tourism and City Planning from Oxford Brooks University. She currently works in medical business development. Before becoming an Orthodox, Hataipat professed Buddhism, the national religion of Thailand.

Celebratory service was ministered by archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), Representative of Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand. He was assisted by priest Danai (Daniel) Wanna, Chairman of the Orthodox Christian Church in Thailand Foundation, and priest Alexey Golovin, current priest in charge of the new Ascension church. Not only Samui residents, but also vising believers from Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya joined in prayers, including those who donated for the new church. Local Thai people came to see the Orthodox service as well.

In the evening before the consecration, priest Alexey served the all-night vigil in front of the closed Altar Gates. In the morning right before the Liturgy, prayers for the blessing of water were made and all the church was besprinkled with it. Many of the believers took part in the Communion. After the Liturgy a procession was held around the building and the church exterior besprinkled as well.

Father Oleg congratulated everyone with double joy – feast of Ascension and opening of the new church. He noted that special providence lead to the creating of new Samui church, through the works and sacrifices of donors, as well as prayers of all the believers in Thailand and in other countries. He also said he hopes that priest Alexey will further strengthen Orthodox community on the island, and will make the church an important local spiritual and cultural center.

It took three years to build the new church on Samui and now many consider it one of the most beautiful Orthodox churches in Thailand. The church also has a special facility for administering baptism and grounds for various parish activities.

Priest Danai Wanna, on behalf of the Foundation of the Orthodox Church in Thailand, gave priest Alexey keys of a new car that was presented to the new parish by the Foundation. Father Alexey said that grounds for Sunday school classes and parish choir rehearsals are ready now.

After the service all those present were invited to a banquet.

There are still some imperfections left for contractors to finish, but the main goal – having a place for regular Divine Liturgies on Samui – is already achieved.

It is planned that in December, when archbishop Mark of Yegorievsk will be visiting Thailand, he will carry out Greater Consecration of the new church (a final consecration rite that requires a bishop to perform it).
