Our Mission Education has begun in earnest with the weekend being spent in Wimbledon. We had a great time with Susan and catching up with old friends from Queen's Road Church. We also met up with John & Sophie who served on the Frontier Year Project who were also hosting our friends Nikki & Rian who recently moved to the UK from SA. Joel especially enjoyed seeing Nikki & Rian as he got to play with his friend Sean.
On Saturday afternoon we gatecrashed Catherine's 40th Birthhday party (she's Susan's youngest), one of the activities they'd laid on was African drumming which Joel really enjoyed.
This morning before returning to Sevenoaks, Dean took Joel for a little jaunt on public transport. They started in Wimbledon Village and went to South Wimbledon by bus, sitting on the top at the front of the double decker. From South Wimbledon they got the Tube to Oval and then took a 'bendy bus' to Vauxhall. From Vauxhall they returned to Wimbledon by train and the got a bus back up to Wimbledon Village. As you could imagine Joel had a ball.
