From February 23-27th Willis travelled by boat to Hawaii. As the letters could not be sent, he wrote them in a series and sent them when he arrived. We will be posting them on the day they were written.

Dearest Darling Sweetheart:-
I’ve been thinking of you a whole lot today my Dear, and as you know I love you more than ever. I’m continually praising God for you and your precious love. The assurance of Christ’s love for us and the joy and beauty of your love is a combination which gives a piece of heart in face of the unknown future. Thank God that all our tomorrows are known to Him and if we are trusting as we ought, the future still has the best yet to be.
We arrived by train and bus at the Port and loaded on our boat. We had our first meal aboard at 4:00 P.M. and because of no sleep the night before I went to bed at 7:30 P.M. Well Lover, I’ll close for now but remember tonight I am more in love with you than ever before. God bless you my Dearest in all things.
Yours and yours alone in the wonderful
love of the Lord Jesus Christ,
“My Utmost” is surely good these last few days, isn’t it Dear?
