"I am a student at the University of Tulsa and have begun to thirst for access to practical Orthodox teachings as I have transitioned into the Church from other churches that had more online resources, etc. AFR has helped me grow and connect to the Orthodox Way and often shows me the community of the Orthodox Faith growing in America. I pray daily for the unity of all Christians into the Church and know that God is using AFR to bless that prayer everywhere. I am forever in debt to you guys. "
