Wait......It's Over?????


  London Olympics over??????   where did they go?  We started planning for the Games over 5 years ago and it is hard to believe that the outreach is over and the group has flown back to the States. We had a great time with the group from Oklahoma and were encouraged by their willingness to come and help. Over 7,000 special John/Romans and 3,000 pins were handed out in our 4 days on the streets of London. On Saturday, we were at Buckinghamd Palace and when we ran out of materials we went out to east London to see the Olympic Park. On Monday, we spent our time at Trafalgar Square and again ran out of material quite quickly. We were finding the hardest thing was transporting anough material into the city as we could usually hand out everything we could carry and drag into town in about 90 minutes due to the amount of people. On Tuesday we went to Oxford Street and Hyde Park. Wednesday found us at the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. It was here that a Tower Bridge official tried to kick a few of us off the bridge but the police came to our defense. Quite amazing!
  Our group kept track of all the different nationalities that we spoke to. The last total was 52 different countries. God brought the world to one place and His Word is going  back with them.
