The shoe box ambassador Patricia Jonas (here you can find the link to an earlier report) announced before Easter that a parcel from Sindelfingen would arrive. We were all very excited! Unfortunately the parcel could not be picked up before Easter because the post office in Spain was closed for several days because of the festive days. But finally it worked out after Easter. Surprise, surprise: Our sister congregation of Sindelfingen had a great surprise in store for us! The following Sunday the parcel was opened in front of the altar by our “Ambassador” Bettiana (unfortunately the “Ambassador” Peter was ill and could not help) and the eyes of the congregation members were radiating. The only question that remained was: Should the content be used for Easter 2016 or Easter 2017? The Spanish postal system did not make it easy for us!
However we decided with on the spot that the contents was meant for 2016 and everybody was happy about that surprise after the Divine Service.
Again: Sindelfingen we thank you very much!
