Well we arrived in London after a long flight to Orlando, then on to Gatwick airport in London. All is well. We are having a wonderful time adjusting and getting over our jet lag. We are staying in the London temple housing and mingling with the other senior missionaries involved with the temple, mission office and visitor center here. Some are English and some are American. They all live in the temple housing in very small apartments. We will have a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment in Tooting Bec when we move out there on Thursday. (Tooting Bec is a place in the London Borough of Wandsworth in south London. It is named after Bec Abbey in Normandy, which was given land in this area after the Norman Conquest.) We will be close to London city center, whereas the Temple is situated south of London in Surrey. We are probably going to buy a car as they are quite cheap here, although we will probably use public transport quite a bit. The Temple here is situated on 31 magnificent acres. It is quite a site. I'll post some pics.
