We went to a Baptist Church in Laon this morning, but the pastor had left yesterday for a funeral in the USA yesterday. A close friend had died and the family had asked him to return and lead the funeral service. Another US pastor working in France came from Metz to take the service here. He and his wife asked us to eat with them which was vey pleasant and we didn.t have to have cup a soup. We did have that later though, with some salad.

My parent's, as children lived in a really poor part of London. In the 1911 census, my mother aged 2, het 3 year old sister lived with their parents and grandmother in one room. My mum was saved at a nearby Baptist Church. My fatger lived about half a mile away in Bermondsey, in an apartment block built by the Guinness trust, as living accommodation for the poor. My dad was saved at a nearby mission which somebody had started as an outreach to the poor.
