Not having an opportunity to personally thank all the kind parishioners of Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral, all our friends and acquaintances, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for your prayers and response to my illness. I thank Vladika Peter and the parish council for their love and response to my troubles. Your love during the trials sent to me by God, greatly supported me.
Thank God, I am getting better, but the road to full recovery is still long. Every day I can walk farther, my hand and arm have more and more range of motion. My speech is improving.
I was so glad to return to our dear church and pray with all of you. I hope that I will slowly but surely be able to return to serving God and the Holy Church.
Again, I ask that you keep me in your prayers.
With love in Christ,
The thankful Archpriest Andre Papkov
