London has been a long term dream for me. I don’t know if it’s the history, the accents, the literature, or what, but I’ve just always loved the idea of London, and let me tell you – it did not disappoint. My first week of spring break was spent enjoying London and it’s beautifully quaint architecture, winding streets, tolling church bells, double decker busses (which make so much more sense then the annoyingly long busses we have in North America??), and tea. So much tea. It was amazing. I loved every moment.
I also had the extreme delight of reconnecting with friends I made nearly three years ago in Kenya, which was.. Well, there just aren’t words. I even got to see Vela, who was a German woman that came to Kenya several months before I was leaving! I was so encouraged to see the work they are doing for the Kingdom, and God at work in each of them. We laughed, reminisced, ate, watched a movie that was a smidge too suspenseful, and they graciously let me accompany them for the week to see their ministry up close. I’m so proud of them. I invite you to join with me in praying for them!
On Friday, a woman from my floor who is currently studying in Ireland, flew into join me. Megan is quick witted and easy to talk to, to name two of a million other wonderful traits she possesses. She made a great travel buddy, and it was a joy to be with her for the weekend!
These are some of my favourite photos from the week:
lots of love to you, london – especially in light of recent events and the tragic depravity of man. thanks for giving me a beautiful week of exploring and enjoying you!
