Today we had the privilege of baptizing the members of the mission community of St Nikolai Velimirović at Palo, Leyte. These people have been studying, praying the services of the Orthodox Church, and awaiting the arrival of an Orthodox priest who could receive them into the Church. We were also encouraged to be joined by Father Sava, an Antiochian priest from nearby Tacloban.
Lighting charcoal for incense on a windy day is a challenge!
