Dragii mei, am primit un nou raport de la părintele Alexis despre stadiul lucrărilor la acoperişul de la Biserica unde sînt adăpostite moaştele Sfîntului Edward Mucenicul, pe care îl postez mai jos. În acelaşi timp, am primit şi fotografia de mai sus, care este realizată vinerea trecută. Iată că se pot face minuni şi într-un loc în care Ortodoxia nu este la ea acasă.
Some Good News and Some Bad!
First the bad - two points:-
a) As we indicated last week not everyone met their pledge promises, and our treasurer, Mrs Elizabeth Castle, has now calculated how much more we will need.
b) One item, which will cost about £500, was left off the tender by the contrators, but, as they have done such exellent work in other respects, we have decided to accept it.
This means that we will require a further £4,000 to complete everything, and not £1,303.81 as we thought.
The Good News - three points:-
a) Last week the donations received amounted to £1,215.50 (just under £90 short of last week’s target for two weeks!)
b) We have been promised interest-free loans by two parishioners (one in London, one in Berkshire) to make up any shortfall, though, of course, these would have to be paid off in time.
c) Because of further unforeseen delays in completing the work itself, it means that we probably have another month to collect the final amount.
