BACK AGAIN

Really, I've been back almost three weeks.

So now, where to begin...? Our three weeks in
England were great!

What would you think if I told you this was our country
home?...No, I don't think so!!!



We spent the first week here at an international
conference: the World Evangelical Congregational
Conference It was held at Hothorpe Hall in Leicester-
shire. It is a beautiful old mansion, standing in its own
grounds. The accommodations and food were great,
not to mention the fellowship and many new friends
we made.

I highly recommend this venue for other interested

groups.



The dining room.



The beautiful grounds.



There was even a small stream running through,
and peacocks roaming around!




The conference was a huge success, with churches
from 16 different nations represented. Here we have
the group from Brazil warming
up for the evening service.
