Visit to Essex

I’ve proved it’s possible to get a cheap train fare as I managed to pay about half what I usually have to pay for a 350 mile journey.  Can’t be bad.

Although I was only going away for a few days, I started out on one of the few days of the year with the whole country under snow, from the north in Carlisle to beyond London.  But I don’t need a `sympathy vote, it had all cleared the next day.

Going back to my original area I noticed quite a few changes, not all for the better.

Meeting old friends, eating sumptuous meals and looking around took up most of my time.  Sunday was spent visiting my old church, where some faces were missing and some were new.  The encouraging thing was the gospel message was the same as it always has been and what I am used to up north.
