There are two other American couples who are full-time Temple Missionaries (in addition to the new MTC President and wife, and a new Service-Mission Couple who are from the US as well.) Last weekend we went on a jaunt with the other two Temple Missionary Couples, the Days and the Galbraiths. We went on our P-Day, Monday, as well as Sunday, which we love, since we always recognize Temple Patrons in whatever Ward we visit! We spent most of our time at Christ Church, Oxford - the College and the Cathedral. The person who planned the trip is a Harry Potter fan; we neither one are, but we enjoyed seeing a different part of this lovely country.
|Good friends, AWESOME traditional houses in the background! We love these!|
|"Tom Quadrangle," Christ Church. Did you know that Oxford is not a|
one-campus University, but a group of 38 Colleges? It was started around
1000 AD! Christ Church is one of the more well-known Oxford Colleges.
|Unfortunately, we weren't in the Christ Church Cathedral during a service, but |
were leaving as these choir boys went in to rehearse. They were not allowed
to talk or sing as they were walking, but were still so noisy! And cute!
