November 08

The month of November was a busy & exciting time for us! We had our first baptism since arriving here in west London. What a joy that was! We also had our first children's activity on a Saturday afternoon. Balloon Blast! We had 26 people in attendance for that! We played balloon games for over an hour with our children ages 2-12 and then had a Bible lesson & some snacks. Some of the other pictures are from different parks in our area. I think that our favorite has become Bushy Park. It's London's 2nd largest park! It's only about 4 miles from our house. I also had my first Ladies Fellowship during this month. My neighbor Hilary came as my special guest! There were 17 ladies there in all. We had a very nice time together. We ended the month with a trip to Northern Ireland to see our friends Travis & Teri Snode and their family and for John to preach 2 mission conferences while we were there as well. We celebrated Thanksgiving with the Snodes & Bakers in Northern Ireland too! We even had some snow in November! God is really blessing us here & doing some amazing things in west London!
