Announcement of 30th anniversary of 118 couples Blessing in England
April 3, 2008
Dear brothers and sisters from the 1978 European Blessing,
You are warmly invited to celebrate our 30th Blessing Anniversary in the United Kingdom, where we were Blessed all those years ago (London, May 21, 1978).
Date: Saturday 17th May - Arrive in time for a BBQ at midday
Venue: ‘Livingstone House’, 13 Beechcroft, Chislehurst, BR7 5DB
On Saturday evening, we can all share with each other about what we have been doing for the past 3 decades, while drinking some hot chocolate or Ovaltine and also enjoy some beautiful songs from a truly talented brother.
On Sunday 18th May, we can all go to 43 Lancaster Gate, for a special fellowship, lead by some of our 118 couples. Lastly, we suggest that we end our celebration at a really nice Greek Restaurant, just around the corner from Lancaster Gate.
‘Livingstone House’ can only offer the maximum of 20 beds at £14 per person including breakfast, on a first come first serve basis. If anyone wishes to stay in a Bed and Breakfast nearby, I can find out how much that will cost. In further correspondence, we will let you know how much we all need to contribute towards meals, restaurant, etc. (Probably about £30 per person).
Brothers and Sisters, please let me know as soon as possible if you are coming to the celebration, so that we, who are hosting it, can start preparing.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
PS Marie Helene Berglind has offered to compile a list of email addresses of all our 118 couples all over the world. Please send her yours. When the list is complete, she will send us all a copy, so that we can correspond with each other if we wish to do so.
