We visited Buckingham Palace which is the official London residence of the sovereign – the Queen, and was first opened to the public in 1993. Entry to Buckingham Palace is via Ambassador’s Court on Buckingham Palace Road which we walked down following walking around in front of the palace, though we were there at the wrong time to be able to go inside..
While visiting my friend Dalletta and her husband John who live west of London in Slough, we went to their church in the West End of London – Hillsong London. They have three services every Sunday at the Dominion Theatre with 2,500 people each service – lavishingly and energetically worshipping our Father God. I was able to spend the weekend with them and now John is no longer my friend’s husband, but a friend also.
While visiting a friend from my home church who now lives in England, we went to see ‘The Official Residences of the Queen’ – Windsor Castle. I particularly enjoyed visiting St. George’s Chapel and seeing all the artwork through out the Sate Apartments.
Worship and Praise from on board the Africa Mercy. Even though we are not living on board, we are having regular times of work on board and also times to gather to pray and offer worship and praise to God. This week during worship, I was looking out one of the large windows and in my mind I could see an urban area in Africa. I believe that was a gift from God to help during this interim period as we prepare to go. We want to keep our faith and focus on Jesus and the direction He has for us.
