It’s Saturday morning in London. My flight doesn’t leave for another eight and a half hours but I’m getting ready to go. I arrived here with two Sony HVR-Z1U HDV cameras as carry-on baggage. The British Airport Authority only allows one piece of hand baggage which means one camera needs to be packed in my suitcase. I’m not thrilled about this and hope the camera makes it back to Canada…in one piece. (I once had two cameras stolen in Zimbabwe when they had been packed in luggage. They were taken somewhere between Zim and New York, when in the bags of the team administrator.)
It has been a busy, productive and tiring week. I’m drained and as much as I love the UK, I’m looking forward to being home. Even if it is only for 48 hours before I head off to Vancouver for three days of meetings. I truly hope the Kiwi produced, No-Jet Lag works on the trip. (If I only remember to take it.)
I’ll try to effectively collect my thoughts on what I’ve seen and heard on this trip. Much of the story will be told through the Allelon videos Alan and I shot. I will leave the country excited by what God is doing here – and with fresh hope for my own country. More on that later.
Here’s a map of the four main areas of our excursions – Birmingham, Liverpool, Lincolnshire and London.
