Inside Orthodox Parish, Pyongyang, North Korea.
« on: April 05, 2015, 07:16:39 AM »
Two Korean priests and two deacons studied in Moscow Orthodox seminary. In 2006th, leader Kim Jong Il built Russian Orthodox Church in Pyongyang. Then Metropolitan, now Patriarch Kiril, took part in celebration of opening the church in 2006th. The church is often visited by Orthodox Bishops from Russia. Church answers the needs of Russians living in Pyongyang and few Korean Orthodox believers.

This is new video that shows Korean priest explaining to tourists the purpose of the Church.

Divine services have resumed in Holy Trinity Church in the capital city of North Korea after a break due to anti-epidemic measures.
The Divine Liturgy was celebrated at the church in the Chonbek District of Pyongyang on Sunday, March 15 by Fr. Vladimir Zhang and Deacons George Yun and Paul Pak, reports the Russian Embassy in North Korea.

That is probably where I would attend church services.
1. Genesis
2. Exodus
3. Leviticus
4. Numbers
5. Deuteronomy

What happened to Fr. Feodor Kim? He was there last year.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Maybe self-quarantine? The last mention of him that I found was last summer.

Being North Korea, he may be on vacation.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
