Nov. 9, 2020. In an email, Rev. Barni Varro from our partner congregation in Szentgerice, Transylvania, sent his congratulation on the elections and the hope that “the new president will bring peace, better future for USA and for the whole world.” He said the pandemic is getting worse in Transylvania each day. There have not been any cases yet in Szentgerice, but a 76-year-old member, who had been in a nursing home for 5 years, recently passed away from COVID-19. Rev. Barni will conduct the funeral. All schools will be closed as of Nov. 9. The repair and restoration work on the church is making good progress. Some old, painted decorations were discovered on the outside of the church under layers of paint and whitewash and will be restored.
