27th December, 1954
I still haven’t received any post from you as we haven’t gotten it, but we are hoping to get it this week. I am anxious to get it, as you can imagine.
Christmas has come and gone. We had a very nice one too. Our Christmas Eve was very nice and Christmas Day service at the church was also well-attended and was blessed of the Lord.
I haven’t received the notice about the money which you said you sent, but, no doubt, I soon shall. I certainly thank you for the nice things which you and Ila gave and not the least those delicious mixed nuts. I certainly like them in a big way. I like the candy, too, but not quite as well as the nuts. The housecoat Ila sent is nice. She did real well on those bows. I appreciate it, too. I forgot to mention the cotton slip. It really is a nice one and I like it for the nylon dresses. It is one of the nicest cotton slips I have ever had.
Not hearing, I have no idea how things are with you all, so I can only pray that God will give you each whatever portion of grace you are needing. I trust that I shall soon hear.
We are still having lots of the rain, the most that I have ever seen for Rhodesia in December.
Well, I believe that this will be all for this time. I know that I haven’t said much but anyway you’ll know that I’m constantly thinking of you all.
With much love,
