I am a non-traditional (read: old) student at Eastern New Mexico University, seeking a B.S. in Anthropology & Applied Archaeology with a minor in Electronics Engineering Technology. I plan to specialize in the history of Imperial Russia, anthropology of Christianity, and exoarchaeology (we have robots digging in the dirt on Mars- it's just a matter of time til humans are there). I discovered the Orthodox church this summer while vacationing in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I was welcomed as though I were Christ Himself by Father Dmitri and all the wonderful parishioners of St. Elias Greek Orthodox Church in El Dorado. There is no Orthodox parish in my home area, so I am learning on my own.
