Moscow, November 22, 2010
On the priest's memorial evening held last Sunday in Moscow, Viktor Kupriynchuk, warden of St. Thomas Church where Father Daniel served, said that missionary team of the martyred pastor continue his mission to diasporas.
They distribute missionary leaflets for migrants in English, Tajik, Uzbek and Vietnamese; leaflets in Kyrgyz are being prepared, and a book about Orthodoxy in Chinese has been published for the Chinese diaspora.
Parishioners of the St. Thomas Church continue their practice of street mission, carry out "missionary raids" along Moscow streets, and this street missionary work is growing.
Additionally, Fr. Daniel's followers have set up a missionary school in Kazakhstan, and publish method books for missionaries on disputes with cultists.
On November 19, 2009, Fr. Daniel was shot dead in the St. Thomas Church. Soon afterwards on December 1, a Kyrgyz citizen suspected in the murder was killed in Makhachkala while resisting arrest.
