"I want to thank with all my heart your station for broadcasting online the beautiful and holy music of the Orthodox Church. Finding your station by chance is such a blessing for me, because the prayers and the songs bring me peace and serenity in my mind and in my soul. I felt the need to express my gratitude for this blessing, and I want to kindly ask you to thank your team on my behalf for the joy, the relief, and the faith they bring me across the Ocean. I wish everyone who is associated with AFR for the glory of God every success for the future."
