We baptized Katerina, a little eleven month old baby whose ancestry is interesting.  On her father’s side she is Dutch and French, while on her mother’s side she is Korean and Russian.  It was a delight to see a huge number of people present for the baptism, most of whom looked  Korean to one extent or another and, moreover, seeing them cross themselves, as they are Orthodox Christians.   They are descendants of Koreans who have lived in Russia for a century or more and who became Orthodox, marrying mainly Russians. They had been living in Kazakhstan and Kyrghystan  before moving to Canada.  We had baptized Katerina’s brother Michael a couple of years ago.  We will post a photo of Natalia, taken in a Georgian restaurant  during her present visit to Kazakhstan.
