Bound by faith. Separated by War. Reunited by Love.
Be inspired by an epic true story of faith, hope, and love. And, a nostalgic look back at one of the most memorable periods in American history.
Ray and Betty Whipps both served in Europe during World War II: Ray as an infantryman under General Patton in the trenches of Normandy, Paris, and Belgium; and Betty as a field nurse in Cherbourg, France. They met when Betty tended to Ray after he was injured during a fiery exchange between US and German troops in the Hürtgen Forest. As Betty nursed Ray back to health, the two bonded over their shared faith and soon fell in love. Before he was released from the hospital, Ray proposed, and they vowed to marry after the war.
However, soon after Ray returned to his unit, he was captured by German forces and held captive in Stalag VII-A, Germany’s largest and most notorious prisoner-of-war camp. It was there that Ray’s faith was put to the ultimate test as he endured the most horrific weeks of his life—weeks marked by brutality, malnutrition, backbreaking labor, and near-constant death. The only thing that kept him alive was the dream of someday reuniting with Betty.
Told in first person from Ray’s perspective, with personal wartime letters from Betty interspersed throughout, ’Til We Meet Again is an epic love story of faith, hope, and resilience, set against the backdrop of one of the most extraordinary eras in world history.
