We arrived in London at 6:45 this morning after a short night's sleep on the plane. We picked up our suitcases and went to the hotel we'd reserved near the airport. There was time to shower and change before Peter and Sonja Hawkins came to pick me up for the drive out to Gloucester where I was to give the sermon. Dr. Kirkpatrick was picked up a bit later to go to Bricket Wood, where he would speak.
Our drive to Gloucester took us through the Cotswolds, one of the most beautiful parts of England and sometimes considered the true heart of the country.
About 30 people were present for services, during which I gave news of work in French-speaking areas before the sermon. After services, and a break for tea and cakes (this is England after all!) I showed the French update video for 2007 and took questions until it was time to leave the hall. It was a pleasure to see these brethren again after several years since my previous visit. I was so invovled in conversations and discussions that I completely forgot to take any photos, sorry.
Temperatures were very sunny and warm, it seemed every English man woman and child were out enjoying the unseasonable warmth and sunlight. The drive through the Cotswolds was lovely, and included a stop for fish and chips at the charming village of Bourdon. It seemed the whole town was out strolling along the stream or out on the grass of the village green. It was a site I believe one could only see in England. Then it was back to the hotel where fatigue ensures that I swill not stay up very late....
