Lea Valley Ward

So today we were assigned to our various wards around the city. With six others from the group, I was assigned to the Lea Valley Ward. The building we meet in is about an hour away by walking and tube. It was an experience to leave at 7:45 in the morning. I am grateful that our ward meets in the morning though because there is another group that goes to the same building after we do and they don't get home until about 5:30. SO a little bit about my ward. Today there were only about 70 people in sacrament meeting, we meet in a real ward building but the chapel didn't have pews, just chairs. It really made me think of the wards that we use to visit in New Zealand. There were people from a lot of different places in our ward. A majority of them had very strong diverse African accents and Jamaican accents. The people were very loving and welcoming and I am excited to get to know them better.

So every Sunday we have mini firesides with our group. Tonight we had a visitor who lived through the second world war and he gave a presentation on it. It was really interesting and it was nice to get a history of what it was like over here during that time.
So that was my Sunday, relaxing and spiritual, exactly what a Sunday should be. :)
