Yesterday, Sunday 20th October, I preached in your congregation — the Dutch Reformed Mission Church in Barrydale. I asked the brothers and sisters to read at home Second Samuel chapters 11 and 12. I then preached for them from Psalm 51. I explained that there was grace even for a murderer like King David. After that, I gave your Aunt Maria a copy of your most recent letter to me, and of mine to you.
Cornelius, read Second Samuel [chapters] 11 and 12, and Psalm 51. Also read Acts chapter 10. I would very much like to hear from you again. Pray for me, for yourself, and especially for your parents.
