We looked at the summer houses on display at the Serpentine Gallery and decided to head to the Peter Pan statue by the Serpentine lake. As we came along the path, there on the grass next to the statue were all 8 VC sisters sitting on blankets having a picnic! What are the chances?! How cool is this that we came here and there they were?! Linda was so excited that they were able to see the statue and learn a bit about the history of the story.
As we have served together, we get to know their unique, special personalities and love hearing their stories and testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ! It is very inspiring to watch them deal with many challenges and rise to every occasion. We have learned so much from them. It is a blessing in our lives to be part of this Visitors’ Centre family!
Prayers are answered even with such a small thing as not raining on the picnic. During the hour together, the sun came out, it was beautiful and warm. Afterwards, the few of us who took a little extra time leaving were caught in a huge, windy downpour that even broke an umbrella. For the first time in our stay in London, Sister Neeley did not have an umbrella with her! Elder Neeley shared his with her and they both got quite wet:)
"Remember, when in London, always carry a… banana.” This is an inside joke caused by a senior moment when Sister Neeley was distracted, she meant “umbrella.” :)
