Offshoot of Russian Orthodox Church Thrives in Alaska

Alaska is the biggest – yet one of the least populated American states. There are just over 741,000 people living there – oil industry workers, adventurers from all over the U.S., Native Alaskans, immigrants.

VOA's Natasha Mozgovaya reports from there.
