Friends, First here are some photographs of the repair of the retreat center heat system in Semkhoz which broke down during the winter. http://voyager.smugmug.com/Religion/repair-of-retreat-center/22303202_vgSrSt#!i=1782111777&k=kxMSjvH "We are glad to report that the replacement of the whole heating system and water supply which did not survive this long cold winter is finished. Everything began to work on last Thursday and on Friday we already managed to start three-days Christian camp for teenagers (it went very successfully). ... We used contemporary heaters and pipings, so we hope now it will be reliable. Unfortunately we did not make photos of the previous system when it was damaged - so you will not be able to compare. Later we hope to replace the thermal insulation of the ground floor walls - to be sure that such disaster will not happen again in future. "To imagine the scale of the work: the workers installed 40 (!) such heaters, about 250 meters of pipes, more than 100 taps, 40 valves and 3 pumps. Replacing the water supply system they changed about 60 meters of pipes, joining them to 17 water delivery points" so this is a sort of sign of resurrection in its small and practical way as we will now celebrate the Resurrection in these days...will forward greeting for Easter from Moscow tomorrow. Funds were advanced to cover , and your donations insure and will insure that none of our programs, magazine, camps, service to handicapped, books, the lecture programs of the 'lectorium' and so on, need be curtailed and in of course again a modest, but real way, this is surely important in Russia today, as we have also written lately,and in our Christian world. Great thanks to all who have donated, a further report later , and information after our sign off on how you can still contribute to the completion of the work in the Summer. yours in the Lord with great gratitude for your care +Seraphim Joseph Sigrist Donations for HOSANNA to The Patristic Society c.o 320 South Broadway, Unit P-7 Tarrytown New York 10591 (all correspondence to me: ssigrist@xxxxxxxxx, or sigrist@xxxxxxxx ) OR TO PAYPAL --CLICK ON "DONATE" BUTTON AT http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=hosanna AND FOLLOW THE SIMPLE DIRECTIONS TO MAKE CREDIT CARD OR BANK ACCOUNT DONATION +Seraphim
