Dear all

This month my letter is of a personal nature.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Just a wee update about what’s happening in my life at the moment! On the 4th of February I have to go to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for surgery – I will be getting a full hysterectomy.                                                                                                                                                                                      After this operation I will be out of action for some time to recover.

I am so thankful this is happening at a time when we have so much support available in our congregations!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Between Alison Quilter and Suzanne Dunleavy all our worship services for February and March are covered, and I would like to thank both of them from the bottom of my heart for all their support! Alison will provide pastoral cover as well, and the Rev John Povey will provide back-up pastoral cover.

Everything will just carry on as normal, apart from Office Hours, which I’ll hopefully get back to in April.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 I have no idea how long it will take before I am able to drive again, but I am hoping for a speedy recovery, and as soon as I am able I will come to church – even if just to attend a service initially.

I’m also thankful to Stewart and Marian, the members of our Sessions and Boards and also our Pastoral Care Team for standing in for me when needed during this time.

 know that you will pray for me, and I appreciate your support very much.

May God bless you all,

Nanda
