أُأُقدم الشكر الجزيل للكادر التدريسي والسكرتاري “لأكاديمية العظيمة في الشهيدات أفيمية”، وأخص بالذكر عميد قسم الدراسة باللغة العربية قدس الأرشمندريت د. ذمسكينوس الأزرعي.
الدراسة اللاهوتية بالمراسلة “عن بعد” رائعة ووافية ومتناغمة،منذ تسجيلي في الأكاديمية بدأت بقراءة الكتاب المقدس بعمق أكبر وروحانية أعلى، وشعرت أنني أعيش بزمن الرسل وعرفت لمن ولماذا كتبوا وكيف أن الوحي الإلهي يعمل فيهم و يرشدهم و يحفظهم من الخطأ دون أن يفقدهم أسلوبهم في الكتابة، تكريماً للإنسانية ،وشعرت بشدة بنعمة الروح القدس تغمر حياتي وحياة عائلتي،فاللرب المجد إلى دهر الداهرين…آمين.

منذ إلتحاقي في كلية القديسة إفيمية للدراسات اللاهوتية “عن بعد” أصبحت دراسة اللاهوت بالنسبة لي غاية من المتعة والفرح والبركة، فكانت إستفادتي عالية وقيمة جداً، حيث درست بعمق الأناجيل الأربعة ومجموعة من رسائل القديس بولس الرسول حتى الآن،وهذا من خلال التفسير والشرح الأسبوعي الذي نستلمه من “مسؤول المادة” قدس الأرشمندريت د. ذمسكينوس الأزرعي.
فشهادة حق ومحبة لهذا الأب الجليل على تعبه وسهره وتعاونه ومتابعته،مع جميع طاقم الأكاديمية التربوي والسكرتاري لجهودهم المستمرة لكي تصل لنا كلمة الحياة،ولكي نستقي ونروي عطشنا الروحي من بحر لاهوت كنيستنا المقدسة.
