Dear folks at home,--Got
the letters from mama and
Annie May Saturday. Annie May's letter was especially
appreciated for I know it took real sacrifice to w*ite
It is rather perplexing the wa oil people
do about some wells. I hope tho they have resumed
work on ours by this time.
Yesterday was a big day for Wolf Ridge.
Immediately after ohnroh -iere in town a lot of us load
ed into oars and drove out there for dinnr -whioh they
served at the church. In all there about 200 people
at the dinner. After dinner they had a short S.S.
lesson-period,and then the Children's Day program was
rendered. Then I preached for a little whil
a 2 hear program.
They made great preparations for the day
and everything was a success. However early Sunday
morning a-heavy rain oame whioh made it look as tho
we wouldn't get to go at all. At the morning service
here in Gainesville I announced the plans that had beel
made for the day,and although the sun hid come opt and
a drying wind was blowing yet I expressed my ser us
doubt as to our being able to make it over those black
land roads. In spite of the disooura*gng notes from
me there were about a dosen oars started out immediate.
ly after ohuroh. Some of the autos skidded and slipped
a lotbut they all dot there safe at last in tire for
the biggest dinner I have seen sinoe they used to have
such things at home.
We are afraid their program for Children's
Day was better than ours will be on May po.
Next Sunday I am to preach a baccalaureate
sermon at Hood ten or fifteen miles west ofhere. I am
planning to come back to my appointment at Wolf Ridge
in the afternoon and on to Gainesville for night servic
oes. Rather rushing-but as I have quit helping the
C.E. so much it doesn't tire me to have three appointments
in one day. It was failure to get that hours
rest and meditation .just before church hour at night
that was getting next to me.
Hope all are well.
Lots of love to all.
Here’s what’s next.
