"Ancient Faith Radio is a massive blessing in my life! I listen every day as I work. Working from home allows me to listen as I please! The information given and selection of speakers are nothing less than excellent! I am not yet an Orthodox Christian, but after three years with the Church Fathers as my companions, and then AFR in my ear for nearly a year, my wife, three children, and I are anticipating our entrance into the Church. May Jesus Christ be praised for all the work you are doing. God bless you all!"
