"My name is Ali. I am a former American convert to Islam (I was 14 years old when I converted and practiced for about 20 years) and now a catechumen in the Orthodox Church. I just wanted to take some time to tell you how much AFR has meant to me. I have been studying the Orthodox faith for only about two years and have been actively seeking entrance into the Church since March of this year. AFR has been an indispensable help in my learning and understanding the ancient faith. You offer such a vast array of podcasts that I don’t have enough time in the day to listen to them all. May God continue to bless you, and I ask for any and all prayers possible as I continue my journey."
