Personally, I'm interested in Korea. Despite being Orthodox and Korean, I have only ever met one other Korean person who is Orthodox, and he like me converted in the USA.

I'm interested in Mexico, purely because it is my cultural background and I have never met another Mexican Orthodox Christian; they're all Roman Catholics, which is strange because my Mexican mother, although raised a Roman Catholic, became a Protestant in her teens.

The funny thing about the Korean Orthodox Church is, all the faithful have Greek names (since the metropolitan is Greek and the metropolis is under the EC). So there's a strange group of folk in Korea named Andonios, Varsunuphios, Constantinos, etc.. It's pretty funny when you think about it.

That's how it has started everywhere. A little awkward at start but once people get used to that it becomes normal. I don't think "James" and "John" were regular names for Slavs and Celts either before their cultures were baptized.
