NOTES OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Dear Friends and Rotarians:
Over the last week I have been receiving cheques almost daily from Rotarians and friends who had previously pledged support to PolioPlus through Hans’ Walk to Beat Polio. As the cheques arrived, some were accompanied with little notes of encouragement to Hans. I forwarded each one to him, and he’s very grateful. He hasn’t had Internet access for 6 days so he read all the good wishes and encouragement today, October 22. Below is what he wrote:
“I really appreciate the words and comments of encouragement. Please continue sending them to me.
“The Camino France was difficult but frankly this walk, at least to this point, is significantly harder and the encouragement from everybody really helps. I´ll write a bit about my tribulations a bit later. These encouragements really make a difference and lift my spirits. I have had a few challenging and trying days with severe weather conditions to deal with and nagging physical issues. Nothing serious but things which make the walk trying. Still, I’m doing okay for a guy who’s 63 years old.”
There is no place on this website for people who read it to leave their comments and notes of encouragement . So when I get one, and if the author has no objection, I’ll post it here.
Here’s one of the longer notes Hans received, and I’d like to share it:
I am writing to tell you that I think you're
