"I am presently listening to your broadcast from Spin Boldak, Afghanistan, where I serve as an Army Chaplain. When I am at my desk, I am listening to the treasury of Orthodoxy that you send forth, and I wanted to thank you. I walk around humming the music all day long. No words suffice to express the comfort and connection that comes to me through you website and the broadcast. Just wanted to say thank you and God bless you all."
