Sarah, My Beloved Darling:
Well, another day has rolled by and I am still here. And as things are now I have no idea when there will be another plane to leave on. When we have no planes that means no mail. I suppose when a plane does come in, it will have a lot of mail aboard and I will have to leave before I can get mine which will mean a couple more weeks without mail. I had hoped there would be mail today.
This morning Raymond and I called at the various areas to see the men. It was almost noon by the time we returned. After dinner I came back to my quarters and took most of the afternoon reading some more in my Bible. I also wrote a little article for the watch night service which the men will have even if I’m gone. I certainly hate to leave these men down here for they are really a fine group.
After supper we went up to the Air Base chapel for our midweek service. We had a good time in christian fellowship. They were only nine in attendance.
After we came back to headquarters, I took enough time to write a letter to Dr. and Mrs. Mantey. I am very tired, but I did want to let them know I think of them. When I get up there with the new outfit it is hard to tell what I’ll run into, and I may not have much time to write to them.
In that I’m tired I will close for now Darling and I hope to hear from you soon. Maybe there will be a plane tomorrow. God bless you, Dear. Give my love to all of the folks.
Only yours now and forever in the
Love of Christ Jesus,
P.S. I will send you my new address as soon as I know what it will be.
