Hammond, writing from the school during a visit of the Pilgrims, stresses the power of prayer and encourages Berry to stand by her own motto, "prayer changes things." God still has work for Berry to do and will give Berry the strength to do it. Hammond writes that Berry should claim health as her birthright so that when Hammond visits in April 1942 she will find Berry full of vigor. Hammond writes that her heart is overflowing with gratitude for the visit and the inspiration of looking into Berry's face.
