really liked it

It was a nice retelling of what missionaries were going through to reach very isolated people in Russia to bring them the faith, and the best attitude to have towards them. Even a bishop can learn a few lessons.
It reminded me of the great story of the Three Simple Men, by Tolstoy, it's really the same spirit.
It made me think of the amazing job done by Bishop now Saint Innocent of Alaska/Moscow.
