Wolfi’s Helicopter View of London…

On Saturday Ali & I took a fantastic helicopter ride over central London all along the Thames river from the Dome all along to West London…what an amazing experience – and a clear confirmation that this IS the greatest city in this world… (Thanks to all our London leaders for this fantastic “visionary” gift at our leaders end of year celebration last December).

Ready to fly…

 

 

 

 

 

This is your captain speaking…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or is this the captain…

There’s over a thousand years of history down there… the Romans were most likely paddling up this river at about the same time that their countrymen were crucifuying Jesus in Jerusalem…

 

  

And there’s the modern stuff too…The Millenium Dome, and the site for the 2012 Olympics in the background…

As Lyndon Johnson said:If a man is tired of London, a man is tired of life; For in London there is all that life affords”

    Dear Wolfi

    Thank you for these aerial fotos.

    When we pray for cities it is always good to go up to a high place-
    well a helicopter trip must match that: a high place for sure!

    It is a real blessing to see what we pray for.
    And it reminds me that
    this is what G-d sees-
    His eye is on all.

    For G-d so loved the world….

    So I am glad to use these to help me
    to pray like Him

    it really is a treat to see more…

    the big picture in focus.
