Tom came over to England the first Christmas of our mission.
Our Mission President let us take him to London for a few days.
We took the train to London and stayed in a Travel Lodge. We took the bus tour and then took in a few sites. Of course, we didn't have time to do them all. Having Tom there for our first Christmas in the mission field was wonderful. We loved it.!!!

Bamburgh Castle

Bamburgh Castle was first built by the Norman's in about 1095.
It was the first castle to be defeated by artiliary in 1464 in the
War of the Roses.

Bamburgh Castle is on the coast of the North Sea. Bamburgh Castle is thought by many to be the original site of Sir Lancelot's Castle.
England has many Castle's and Abbey's. We saw quite a few of them.

Aycliffe Church in England

There was a graveyard by this old church and it was near Newton Aycliffe. McDonalds was close by also, so about once a week we would drive thru McDonald's and get lunch and take it to the graveyard to eat there. It was a nice quiet spot, as you can imagine and no one bother you there.

This church was started by the Saxons in
around 980
