His Grace Bishop Daniel visited our mission parish in the southwestern part of the country in New Mexico, on the weekend of June 19-21. That mission parish, St Anthony of the Desert in Las Cruces, was started by father Gabriel Rochelle and Pani-Matka Susan. A few years ago Father Gabriel and Pani-Matka Susan moved to New Mexico and started to look for ways to bring (the Word of God) Faith of God to people. He started to put information on the radio and internet. Fr. Gabriel and his wife put signs on streets and in stores, and called people’s homes and try to reach them with God’s commandments. When father Gabriel was calling to people’s home’s and tried to talk about the church, some people were uninterested for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately a lot of people do not pay any attention on the church. They don’t care about spiritual life or about God’s teaching. On the other hand, the area is almost completely without knowledge or awareness of the Orthodox Church and its tradition, so one must educate as well as inform people. Even many of those who come from Orthodox backgrounds have been apart from the church for so long that they do not appear to be interested.
