Last week we got to participate in a Senior Training Activity for the mission on Thursday, May 24th. So much fun! All the senior missionaries gathered from the four corners of the mission (as far away as Cornwall) and took the train into London for the day. We had plenty of time to talk and compare experiences.

When we arrived at Victoria Station in the heart of London, we transferred to the Circle Line on the Tube and traveled to the South Kensington stop. From there it was a short walk to the newly opened Hyde Park Visitors' Centre.

After dinner, we rode the Tube to the Hampstead Theatre to see the musical version of Chariots of Fire. I had forgotten what an inspiring story it is. The cast included LDS actress Savannah Stevenson. We loved the play!
On Sunday, President and Sister Shamo came to the Visitors' Centre as our guest speakers for our England London South Mission fireside. Their presentation was fabulous. Their combination of personal experiences, video clips of early Church presidents, and stirring testimonies touched us all.
