Letters from Transilvania

You are the witness of the light

Dear friends,

every morning Cristina would already be waiting outside the Habakuk Social Centre when Lili unlocked the gates. Then she would take a pail and cleaning equipment and walk over to the to the “Resi Well”. It is protected by a wooden hut but always remains open so that the families living in the adjoining settlement “77” can fetch water. In the evenings the women sit inside on the benches and gossip until all have filled their bottles. (April 2019)  Read the letter…

In their letters from Transilvania Father Georg Sporschill SJ and Ruth Zenkert write about their work and life in the ELIJAH community.
