A letter from Rev. Franziska Steinrueck

We have received a wonderful letter with lots of lovely pictures from Franziska. Please check out the bulletin in our community room.  Through the letter, you can see how Franziska, with her most simple and yet determined ways, has overcome many of the challenges from the stroke. Through her move, there is now a new addition at her daughter, Sophia's home. How incredible is her power of transformation that works with small, patient and yet with real resilient steps!
