Matthew interviews Eric Peterson, who has a Master's Degree from the University of Kansas in Russian and East European studies with a focus on Orthodox missions to America. The topic is the spread of Orthodoxy in Alaska from the 18th century to the early 19th century.
"Just wanted to let you know that because of AFR, and especially the Our Life In Christ series, I am becoming Orthodox. A parish is building a new church near me and have put out a sign. I've been a Protestant for years, and when I saw the sign realized I didn't know much about Orthodoxy. I Googled it, read a bit, and was intrigued. So then I found AFR and started listening. I now listen to it every day on my drive to and from work. My knowledge and understanding of Christ has grown so much over the past six months. I have now started regularly attending a local parish and meeting with the priest. God bless you."
