May 06, 2012 Length: 16:27

"I want to thank you for your ministry. I have been listening to AFR for several years now, but it means more to me this year than ever. I am working in the Middle East as part of a multinational peacekeeping force, but I am the only Orthodox Christian on camp. The priests and ministers available to me are Catholic and Protestant. While good men, they can't offer me the Sacraments or church experience I need. When I am most lonely and homesick, I can boot up my laptop and log in to AFR, and my whole outlook is changed in an instant. Being able to hear the words and sounds of my faith, especially here, means more to me than you can ever know. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And God bless you all!"
