ORTHODOXY and the OLD WORLD: An Interview w/ Fr. Peter Heers

By John Heers, First Things Foundation

This is a bit dated - done in September - but I don’t think I shared it here with you all then.

John is the founder and director of the First Things Foundation which takes “first world” youngish men (and women) to the “old [developing] world” (usually next to an Orthodox missionary, like Fr. Themi in Sierra Leon) for a few years, where they immerse, learn the language and then connect with locals to find the entrepreneurs among them and spur forward organic, ground up development. (This is my attempt at describing a very unique endeavor.)
