What is Orthodoxy like in Latin and South America? We sometimes see stories about a priest changing jurisdictions, an orphanage, a group converting en masse, but what are things like in total or as a whole? How many Orthodox are there total? How many of the Orthodox writers through the centuries have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, etc.? Have there been any efforts to translate stuff--even basics like Scripture and liturgy and prayer books--into the local languages that don't have hundreds or tens of millions of speakers/readers? Are overlapping jurisdictions as much a commonplace there as in N. America?
