  1. Curious how a Malaysian priest is Russian Orthodox ? Or is he Greek orthodox ? Why does America need a priest from Malaysia. Why not Russian ?

    Sorry just a curious on looker, wondering where Russian believers worship where there is no orthodox presence in Asia.


  2. I believe Father John was an Anglican priest who later converted to Orthodoxy. He is with the OCA, which originated from the Russian church. I am not sure about the details of Father John’s move to America, but I do know that there is a need for English-speaking priests in America, since there have been a lot of converts the past few decades.

    There are Russian Orthodox churches in a lot of major cities in Asia. Let me know if you are in Asia and looking for a place to worship, and I can give you the contact information for the nearest church
