My Stay In England!!

well the Lord allowed me to spend 2 weeks in England with my friend Mary Qualls! we have had such a great time and it has been an experience i will never forget!!
we have been helping the Zenkers with the work at Beeches Road Baptist Chapel in Blackheath, England! the Lord has really worked in the ministry here but the people are still very cold towards the gospel. though it is hard to reach the adults the Lord has really blessed in the children's ministries! i am so thankful that i had the opportunity to work with them during my stay here. i must admit i was very uncomfortable with the positions i was put in but the Lord helped me and the experience i hope will be put to good use!
we were able to do some sight seeing as well. our first day here we went to Stratford where Shakespeare's birthplace is. it was a cute small town, but we were so tired that day that we really didn't get to enjoy it. next we went to Bath. that was a lot of fun! i tried some water in the pump room but found it to be disgustingly warm!! we were able to take a 2 day trip to London!! that was my favorite!! we saw the Tower of London, British Museum, Harrods, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abby, Big Ben and the London Eye. we had the chance to do lots of shopping as well. we also visited Oxford University. it was a nice place, but due to our lack of knowledge i'm afraid we couldn't appreciate it like we should have. today we finished our journeys with Warrick Castle!!! the castle was in the best condition out of all of the ones we saw. the spiral stairways made me dizzy but mary helped me. during our stay here we got the joy of experiencing the train, tube and cab!
please pray for continuing work here in England and a safe return for me and mary tomorrow!!
