The print of the painting by Carl Bloch is framed in the the doors of the Visitors' Centre as we walk in each day. We see the statue of Jesus from a distance, walking through the parking lot at Imperial College. We hope that each person who comes here will know that we believe in Jesus Christ and that He loves each one.
On July 3, the woman whose parents and grandmother were killed on this location when it was bombed in 1944 during World War II came with her daughter and two grandchildren to bring flowers and remember her loved ones.

What a joy to welcome Jack James Cannon to the world on 1 July 2016! His due date was 11 July. We talked to Maria on Thursday, 30 June and she showed us their refrigerator and pantry all stocked with food as well as the freezer with meals ready to go. She was hoping that the baby would come that weekend or the next week when Rich was off work for a week. We woke up Friday morning to see a text that she was at the hospital in labor. While we were on shift that morning we received the happy news: He’s here! What joy to know that he arrived safely and is healthy and happy and thriving. We are so very grateful for this wonderful blessing in our family!
This year, we celebrated Linda's birthday with ice cream from our favorite ice cream truck. The Osborne’s of London began in 1909 and now John (who has been working in the business for 48 years) and Elaine and their son take turns each day serving the passers by on Exhibition Road. We all went in shifts, across the street to enjoy our ice cream.
Birthday greetings from our precious family and friends, cards, emails, texts, facetime and skype all combined to make it a special time. We had dinner and ice cream with J. Paul and Alessandra the Wednesday before. Birthday singing from President and Sister Stevens as well as a jolly song from the Gales and Williams in the office added lots of cheer. We feel so much love and support from our dear Visitors’ Centre sisters and the Hulets and Mullens.
