If you've been Orthodox for less than ten years, you're out. Sorry.

I'm looking for a truly experienced guide, preferably a priest, that is able to carry on a correspondence using the Internet.

Please let me know if any of you are eligible.

Your best bet would be to find a monastery locally and go from there. I don't know that posting on a message board is the best way to find a "guide."

I wish you well on your journey.

Let's talk via PM.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

I would think a local priest may be better suited...

First of all welcome to the forum brother. How long have you been Orthodox? What brought you to this site?
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

I agree, I guess I just assumed that he couldn't find anyone local, my mistake in not clarifying that.
