Dear Mrs. Jeschke!

I extend my heartfelt thanks to you for your friendly greeting with a picture of our church portal and the green certificate. Actually, I should rather respond. But please forgive the delay. I am glad that you were able to have such a beautiful third trip to Europe. We consider it again and again so strange, how foreigners can go all over Europe, but to us DDR-Europeans almost all borders will remain closed. The working people of our country who have to cope with all of the work load for the State, are not trustworthy enough to allow them to travel freely. This mutual distrust characterizes our actual hardship under which we also suffer as Christians. But we are more likely to get over it because we win, after this short life, the everlasting glory of God. There we will be with all our loved ones, with all believers in Christ of all times and nations before the throne of the Lamb. That exit visa no one can deny us. But the atheist working class, which holds only the truly short life of this world, is prevented by the ruling atheists to satisfy their human desire to visit next of kin or to meet other peoples and cultures. How to blunt the people and become bitter! If, however, they also learn about other countries, they would realize that even where another "only cooks with water," they never would be grateful for a life at home.

… then yes we are doing relatively well. We Christians are respected. And that is not self-evident. Especially in preparation for Luther commemorative year our Marxists have learned quite yet. This is encouraging.

Now, however, your request for information about relatives of the last century: You wish to obtain information about Gertrud Junker-Teinert. This is what it states in the church book:

I hope to have reasonably satisfied your wishes.

In your visit, you said in the following year a visit of your group is planned. We would be thankful if you could tell us the number of the visitors and the time table. we would like to greet them as guests, also, if possible, a community event scheduled which could be recorded as history. Also, we could show films of the renovation of our church building that now inside and outside shines with brilliance. The so called Kilian Linden Tree, what you saw, must ultimately be cut down. It was totally dried up. But her fall was recorded in the picture.

We greet you heartily, dear Mrs Jeschke, and also the two other ladies, from all your local kinship and the community. God bless you!

John Huebener, Pastor
