Lasting memories of London

Elder Wilson in front of the Hyde Park Chapel and Visitor Centre
On Thursday, 9 May, we were blessed to take a train from Horsforth to Leeds and then onto London.  We had a lovely visit and stay with Lorin and Nancy Peterson in London and returned home Sunday, 12 May after attending church at the Hyde Park Chapel.
