“Greetings from the congregation in Beszterce (Bistrita), Romania. We were thinking about you at our Easter Service! We are sad to report that the Easter card you made for us has not yet come. The post office here in Romania is on strike. We’ll look forward to getting the card after the strike, and even more to seeing 11 of you here in July!”

Notes on Photos Below: Behind the women’s chairs is what looks like a cupboard, but is a tiled heating unit for their room. The lady rising from her chair in front is Maria Bencze, congregation President and daughter of their founder. In the mostly men’s group, you will see our young visitor of July 2023, Alex Balint, who is the grand nephew of Maria.
