Remembering London
November 27, 2016

In June 2014, we were in London for meetings and appointments for the work that Brethren in Christ World Missions has in London. When we had free time, JoLene and I checked out a few sites around the city.

For my missions assignment, one of the couples we interviewed live in what is called a narrow boat, at a marina on a canal. England has hundreds of miles of canals, and many people, like this couple, have a narrow boat as their only home. Here are a few views of the canal and marina that we visited.

We stopped by the Museum of London (not the more famous British Museum.)

We went there to see this.

This large bronze plaque commemorates the fact that John Wesley experienced his evangelical conversion near this spot on May 24, 1738, while attending a meeting of a Methodist Society on Aldersgate Street. The plaque features text from Wesley’s journal describing his conversion experience. How gratifying to see such a clear witness to God’s saving grace in such a public place!
