Fr Themi arrived in Freetown, Sierra Leone Feb 2008.
At that time P4K were with him, ready to help him serve the poor, of the then, poorest nation of the world.
It is said he was asked why Sierra Leone and he replied, “we will start from the bottom and work our way up”.

Rock n Roll
During the 60s, Themi became a founding member of a Rock n Roll band called ‘The Flies’, deferring his studies to pursue a career in the music industry and gaining local and interstate popularity (and it was an intense popularity).
Two stories from his only and younger sibling Mary, include; teenage fans camping outside their Melbourne home (where his mother felt sorry for the fans and would feed them home cooked Greek food & sweets) and Mary selling his personal belongings such as socks, toothbrushes and clippings of his hair to the adoring fans, thus taking advantage of his notoriety.

St Basil’s Basileiad – Fr Themi’s Themiaid
In the 4th century, Basil the Great constructed a complex called “Basileiad”; a complex to help the sick, the disabled, the poor & orphans; a Church, structures, guest houses, schools, orphanages & homes for the poor.
St Basil was following Jesus’ parables of the Sheep & Goats in the Gospel of Matthew 25.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry & you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty & you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger & you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes & you clothed me, I was sick & you looked after me, I was in prison & you came to visit me.’
Fr Themi continues the Lords work, and we like to call it “Themiaid” – all for the Glory of the Crucified Christ, Jesus of Nazareth.
