The wind blew just right and we landed in England! We flew over the famous Stonehenge monument and many beautiful country cottages. When we finally landed in the capital, London, we had a great view of Big Ben. As we looked at the time, we thought about a time when people feared England.
Way back around 500 a.d. was a man named Augustine. He was sent by a pope in Rome to go to England and tell them of God's love for them. Augustine brought a team of men with him for the long journey. As they got closer they began to hear stories about the English. They heard that they were barbarians and that they would all be killed the moment they got there.
Augustine's team was scared to go any farther. After some encouragement from the pope, they made it to England. Augustine sent a message to the king about who they were and why they were coming. Do you know what? The queen was already a Christian! The team was welcomed into the country and Augustine eventually became the archbishop of Canterbury.
You really just don't know about people until you get to know them! We can't wait to get to know new people all over the world. How about you?
