TO THE ABOVE LETTER, I RESPONDED (TRANSLATION):
8th Feb., 2000
Many thanks for your letter to me of 29th November. It arrived yesterday, and my family is very grateful for your nice words.
I am going to make copies of your letter and this answer to it, and send them to friends in Suth Africa with the request that they please get in touch with you and try to get you enrolled for a Bible Correspondence Course. It seems to me it would best be in Afrikaans, for after all that is closest to your heart.
Your photo is in our sitting room, and I pray for you every time I see it. Please give my greeting to your Aunt Maria, and write again soon.
