The weather is changing. It gets dark at about 4:30pm now and the sun never gets to high during the day, that is when we can see it. It’s getting quit cold and rainy, but we still love it. They say the real winter is still to come. Since the British don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving, they get into the Christmas spirit quit early. Most of the stores are already decorated and colored, sparkling lights are up all over London.
Surprisingly, we still have many visitors coming into the centre. Some are very interested, some are just interesting. I tell about some of them on the Stories page. And, we continue to have interesting and thought provoking conversations with all kinds of wonderful people (see Inspiration page). In our spare time we love taking pictures of London. On the places page I put pictures of our favorite train station, and some of the really nice cars we see on the streets of London.
We love sharing the gospel. Holly is always involved in some sort of musical presentation with the missionaries or with ward members, or playing piano at the hospital. We are often asked to teach gospel principles class, and we are now teaching the temple preparation class. The gospel changes people. It changes them for good, and brings happiness, peace and purpose to their lives. I will end with this quote:
“The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.” President Ezra Taft Benson (1899–1994)
