The day commenced with tours of the UCLA campus by current and former students. Chris is a current 4th year English Literature and Film student, Melody studied and later served and now works on campus, Bart was a student at UCLA for ten years and studied at the institution for A DECADE. In addition, we were joined by Jodie who works on the campus and Cam who is also a current student.
The UCLA campus is so wonderful !! Here are the saints pictured on the University’s famous Janns steps, and also pictured with our tour guides Bart and his daughter Joy. Oh the saints are so beautiful, hallelujah for blending blending blending !!
The UK saints gazing at Royce Hall modelled after Milan’s Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio by architect David Allison. It was created with 52 imperfections… showing that only God is perfect ! Can you spot them all?
It was great to see one of the many manifestations of the University of California’s campus works. Our tour guide Bart shared with us that he had received the Lord by meeting the saints at the UCLA campus whilst being a student there. Praise the Lord for the His move on the campuses !
After our wonderful campus tour (thank you saints!), we had lunch in Westwood Village.
To avoid being stuck in traffic later in the day, we went to the Japanese Gardens in Van Nuys. The gardens were very pretty, and we had another photo competition – we’ll start the voting for that one when the voting for the San Diego Zoo pictures finishes.
We loved the blending in the evening hosted by Hall 2 of the church in Los Angeles. Praise the Lord, Philadelphia !
The love feasts with the saints have been truly wonderful. One of the brothers smoked the beef for twelve hours. It was delicious !
We enjoyed eating, singing and sharing with all the saints ! The LA saints had also organised a special fellowship in which the older saints shared some of the riches they had accumulated in their experiences of Christ with the younger ones. What a precious time this was of being blended together into one accord with all the saints.
One brother shared that often young people desire to be matured overnight, but it takes time. He said that he has been in the church life for 45 years, and the Lord is still growing in him !
Lord Jesus, grow and mature in us !
