Cloudy and Rain
Mr. Rufus and I are at the Air Observation Post. It is now 2:10 a.m. It began thundering about midnight when a storm came up and has been raining since about 12:30. We have had a real good shower for which I am very thankful.

Since I had to have my clients mail in their premiums I haven’t been out on the road this week. However they have sent in their remittances very well considering this is the first time they have had to do so.

This morning I finished me report. Afterward I went to Quarterly Conference at St. Matthew. I got there just as Dr. C.F. Williams, District Superintendent was finishing his sermon. Following dinner we went into the business session. The reports were generally good. Financially the Churches on the charge are generally in a better position than last year this time or even for the last several years.
I took Papa home and he gave me some cabbage and new potatoes. I came home and attended to my chickens, ducks and goslings. We had a nice little shower tonight.

It has been real hot again today. I had hoped we would get a shower but we did not.
One listens to the news from the various fronts on this war with mingled emotions. A victory here or there by the Allies or here or there by the Axis. In the mean time what has become of Hitler’s air force? Is it waiting for the Japanese to attack Russia and divert some of Russia’s pressure upon the German lines in the East? In the mean time we who know nothing of the details can only wait, and hope, and pray. God grant that the end may come speedily.

I went to Sunday School this morning. We had a nice crowd and a fair offering. In the absence of the regular and assistant teachers I taught the Men’s Bible Class. After Sunday School I called a meeting of the Board of Christian Education at which we decided to send a delegate to the Leadership Conference School at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, Lynchburg. We are also sending a delegate to the Young People’s Conference which will be held at the same place from June 15 to 20. The Leadership School is from June 22-27.
After Sunday School, Carole Anne and I went to Mama’s for dinner. When I came home Leone wasn’t feeling well and hadn’t had time to feed the chickens. I did this and when I went out I found that one of the Mallard ducks had come up with nine little ones. We now have 15 mallards and 17 muscovies.
