London

We are enjoying our time in London. We have done a LOT of walking and we have even sort of figured out the transit/train/tube transport. Yesterday morning we rode the train (about 50 minutes) to the London temple and attended a session there. It is a beautiful temple and beautiful grounds. It was nice to feel the peace and quiet that is there. The last time we were at a temple was over a year ago in Jo'berg. Reeve, CC and Lolly were at the London temple for a week just recently. When the workers there heard we were coming from Zimbabwe they told us how much they had enjoyed the girls and how great they are. We agreed, of course.

Last night we went to "Lion King" at the theatre. It was really good - wonderful singing and costumes! Today we will do the 'hop on, hop off' bus which will take us to all the main sites. Tomorrow we will go to church, of course. There is one that is within walking distance - a 15 to 20 min. walk. We had some good English fish and chips before the play but they were a little pricey. I guess almost everything is a little pricey here!! :)

We had some really hard goodbyes before we left Zimbabwe. We will miss the good people there. It is especially hard when we know that we may never see them again in this life but we hope that we have left them better than they were before we came.

  1. Wow, I can only imagine how difficult it is to say goodbye! We are only 9 months into our mission and already my heart aches if I let myself begin to think about leaving these wonderful people.

    Often we wonder if we are really making a difference and then every once in awhile we see a smile where there wasn't one before, someone walking a little taller, a wise decision being made, a suggestion being acted upon, and wonder if maybe we helped a bit.

    It is exciting to think that you are all done, and re-united with your family and friends back home. Well done, good and faithful servants!
