From your friend. Cornelius Witbooi.
Many thanks for your letter 27 April 1998, which reached me here 27 July. I read it out loud last night at our family worship, and we learned with the greatest gratitude that you are praying for my daughter. She is now out of hospital, but has to take strong medication daily. Her sickness has not been diagnosed exactly, but seems to be one of two possible kidney problems with long names and which few people ever get.
Last night I said to her: “You know, Anna, you are the younger grandchild of your late grandfather who died after Cornelius attacked and robbed him. He loved you, and all the money on earth can never bring him back to us. But now, our dear Lord is using precisely Cornelius to pray for you, so that you can get quite well again. How wonderful are the ways of the Lord!” She then said: “Yes, it’s very humbling!”
