Short update - August 13, 2006

Please keep the prayer in the blog post below going, but I thought I'd also post this quick update--just emailed to biological and church family--for your interest and prayer. Blessings. Nigel.
Dear Fam (biological and church),

Just thought I'd jot y'all a quick note to let you know that I arrived safely here in London and am settling in well.

Since arriving, I (have):
-gone to All Souls Church (home of John Stott; see pic)
-spent some time walking around London
-spent a few days overlapping with George Verwer's previous gopher Nathan Smith, learning the ropes
-officially begun my year as Gopher 2006/2007
-blown up "the globe" for the first time
-started receiving stacks of emails/reading/etc to process from George's "paper pipeline"
-set up 7 book tables (for a "ship reunion" that took place yesterday), thus carrying lots of boxes
-given away a bunch of books and CDs to a post-George-Verwer-message crowd
-connected with some amazing people, including Jason Mandryk (currently the primary author of Operation World)
-spent some time cleaning and moving into my "flat" (apartment) above the office here in West Wickham (Southeast Greater London)

Thanks for your prayers!

Nigel."
