Nice to meet you all! I am Romanian Orthodox and very interested in theology, my growth in faith starting since I was a small acolyte. I have been blessed to visit both Athos and Jerusalem, which have helped me grow in my faith. Beside theology, I also like airplanes and bellringing! If anyone knows how to ring Russian bells, I am vey interested on the topic.
