Reader feedback: Farewell to the flock

Re: An unexpected blessing, By Owen V Johnson, May 31 - June 6, Vol 10, No 21

Congratulations to Paul and Kay [Hanson] for all the work they have done with the English-speaking community in Bratislava. I have had the opportunity to visit them several times over the years they spent working in the Malý Kostol [where Paul served as pastor].

They have been a welcoming presence and exceedingly gracious hosts, as they were for the concert we, the Central Lutheran Choir from Minneapolis, presented in the Malý Kostol sanctuary. They will be dearly missed!
