Themi – Apostle To The Hungry
“A rock star, atheist, Marxist, world-class theologian, African missionary, and a Greek Orthodox Bishop all in one lifetime? Bishop Themistocles Adamopoulo’s story reads more like a bestselling novel than a biography”.
After a personal tragedy, Themi’s rock star, atheist persona was shattered. Over a few months, a series of Divine visions changed a young man from a lost soul into a servant of Jesus Christ.
In the late 1990s, events led Themi to follow another path, serving the poor in his native Africa. Since 2008, Bishop Themi has battled Ebola and foes, both earthly and spiritual, to feed, educate and offer the love of Jesus to thousands of West African people through his Holy Orthodox Mission in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
