Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ,
               I am very happy to be part of this discussion forum and I look forward to learning from you all. Although I am a new registered member, I was introduced to this forum summer of last year as I was googling for orthodox discussion sites (God bless whoever genius created google). Just over the past few months, I have gained a lot of knowledge reading the posts shared by you all.
God bless you all for putting your time and effort into explaining, translating, and correcting. I am very pleased to be part of this OO forum family.

May the intercessions and the prayers of the Mother of God, the Ever Virgin and pure in spirit St. Mary be with us all. Amen.
Bytania

greetings Nicolas
Selam Hiwot! Thanks to both of you for welcoming me
Hiwot, I have seen some of the translations you did and I must say, I was impressed!! Those of us who speak Amharic know how difficult it is to do that. Yet, you have done such an amazing job and makes it look so easy. God bless you Sis!
