38 Year Old Hindu Converts to Orthodoxy

A 38 year old Hindu man was baptized Orthodox in a church outside Halkida, Greece. It was a decision he came to on his own after visiting various holy shrines in Greece, especially in Tinos which he visited many times. His impression of Orthodoxy was that it was a "living faith" and it thus became his dream to be baptized. His Christian name is Menas. Following his baptism, a celebration was thrown for him at a local tavern.
