Two Quechua women adopt Orthodoxy in Moscow

Moscow, January 11, Interfax - Two women from Quechua Indian tribe were baptized after Christmas service at an Orthodox church in south Moscow. "We talked about faith with them. They read the Creed in Spanish, I found it in Internet," Rector of St. Thomas church in Kantemirovskaya Fr. Daniel Sysoyev, who conducted the Sacrament, told an Interfax-Religion.  According to Fr. Daniel, two Bolivian women - mother and daughter, who decided to take baptism - are studying in Moscow. Their friend from Peru told them about Orthodox faith. She is from Inka tribe, but has long lived in Moscow. The women were named Maria and Elizabeth after Maria Magdalena and the Holy Martyr Elizabeth Romanova. "It's probably the first time in history when Quechua Indians adopted Orthodoxy," Fr. Daniel noted.
