Day Three – The Last Night in England

The following post is from a series of emails I wrote to my girlfriend at the time, whilst on a trip to Africa. She is now my wife, so I did something right.

I went to the Black Lion tonight. There were many hours of reminiscing, and me and Olivier didn’t leave until after midnight. My last ever evening with the spiritual landlord of the Black Lion – Richard. I’m sad about the loss of another stalwart of my late teens, but what can one do?

Packing is now the order of the day. Please text me anything I might have forgotten.

I have set up an adapter, and am charging every relevant battery before I go. In total, I’ve got 4 chargers running!

I can’t believe I’m going tomorrow. I’m going to miss you, and Heze, so much. I love you dearly, and I look forward to being able to be with you again forver. I don’t ever want to leave you for this long again…

“Saul said to his armor-bearer, “Draw your sword and run me through, or these uncircumcised fellows will come and run me through and abuse me.”
But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it. When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died with him.
So Saul and his three sons and his armor-bearer and all his men died together that same day.”
1 Samuel 31:4-6
When we sin, it ultimately leads to ruin. I am very excited about this upcoming trip, for the spiritual challenge, and blessing, it’s going to be for me. Foremost in my mind is that I am going in order to serve.
Love you my darling,
