Alton Webteam: June 2015
Norma's Romania News
I am off to Romania by car on 4th July, with the usual load of medical supplies. One consignment has already been sent by road and awaits me in my flat. This time the hospital has specifically asked if I could bring gloves. I haven't been able to obtain these through my usual sources so have bought 6 boxes on the internet. Our timing is tight for this trip and we are hoping to cross Europe in just two days.
I am looking forward to seeing the recently completed major improvements in the nursing home I visit. The Romanian schools have a long summer closure, from mid-June to mid-September, partly because of the terrific heat and so there will be no opportunity for me to teach on this visit.
To those of you who have been so kind and understanding of my recent family problems I am happy to report that we are feeling much better. 2015 has not been a good or easy year so far, but things are improving for us. Your prayers have so often 'lifted me', in the words of the old hymn. A very big 'Thank You'.
To God be the glory, great things he has done!
