June Jumps Joyfully Along

The sisters asked Elder Neeley if he would take some pictures of them on their preparation day. We met at Abbey Road just like the Beatles:) Sunday, 12 June, Kira was baptized. She came into the Visitors’ Centre a few weeks before and Sister Mullen gave her a tour. It is such a joy to see her and all of the other new members who make the choice to be baptized and go forward with faith!

Monday became our preparation day because this week was transfers. We checked out the Jewel Tower, very old, across the street from Parliament. We went through security at Parliament and were able to go through Westminster Hall to see the activity in the House of Commons. The sisters suggested we go to “The Slug and Lettuce” for half price Monday dinner. It was more tasty than the name sounds:)

J. Paul met us for dinner after shift and piano lessons in Chinatown. Always great to be with him! Friday, we had incredible Visitors’ Centre training with Brother Mark Lusvardi. He is Director of Public Programs for the Church and had great insights and inspiration regarding our opportunities here. We loved being with him Friday and Saturday mornings. Friday evening, Pam and Denny Fillmore met us at the Fish House in Notting Hill, we like this place:) We enjoyed catching up with them and walked back to the VC through Hyde Park, past the Albert Memorial and Royal Albert Hall and on to the South Kensington Station.

Sunday, 19 June was Father’s Day! We are so grateful for our amazing fathers and the super fathers of our precious grandchildren! We love each one so very much!
