"This station has profoundly changed my life. I have been a Christian for twenty years, but I've been spiritually starving for many of those. Thank you so much for your deep teaching and blessed encouragement. I ask for your prayers -- I am ready to make the leap from our Protestant Church to Orthodoxy, but my husband is not. Until I can regularly attend our local Orthodox parish, AFR is a great comfort and a gift from God."
