In this episode of Journeys to Orthodoxy, Chris Vlahonasios interviews Jesse Brandow, a young man answered the call given to every Christian to bear witness to Christ. Jesse shares the story of how Orthodoxy was introduced to Guatemala with the indigenous peoples there, descendants of the ancient Mayan civilization. We learn that Orthodoxy is meeting a critical need in helping people there to see their local community as the very heart of the Church itself. Jesse tells us how this young community is just beginning to experience an integration of their culture with the wider Orthodox world, which will eventually enrich the entire Orthodox Communion.
