Evidently, the clergyman from the Extreme Pilgrim BBC documentary also did another series, in which he explored 80 different faiths around the world.  This included a service in Ethiopia on the Feast of St. Michael:

What impressed me the most was the warm hospitality of the Ethiopian priests.

Thanks for sharing, Salpy. And here one can see photographs from Fr. Paisius' (an EO priest form Kansas City) pilgrimage to Ethiopia.

Salpy, Thank you for sharing this beautiful video! I know how this journalist feels, for the Ethiopian people have opened up their Faith and their Church to me and my family so that we can now say that this Faith is ours. I am overwhelmed when I see such wonderful things- overwhelmed because I know that I am not worthy, and yet nonetheless I am now a part of this rich and ancient Christian Faith. For me, Ethiopia above all represents Divine Grace. Grace is the only word I know that explains how such a sinner like me could find his way into the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Salpy, I am always moved and touched by your interest and love for our Ethiopian Orthodox Church. You are so kind and gracious to continually be furthering such wonderful knowledge and information about the EOTC. It demonstrates your Christian sincerity, and I know that God will bless you for this.
