A little about Stratford….
Stratford ward is mainly Africans. There are 10 missionaries in the ward. The bishop is from Ghana, the ward mission leader is from Jamaica (cue everyone making jamaican jokes) and not many people are english. We have some Russians, Portuguese, and Indian members. We meet in Ilford, which I think has more Indian people than India itself! It constantly smells of curry there.(I love me some curry!) Most of the people in Stratford are from the middle east or Africa, and they are all Muslim or Christian. We walk everywhere because we talk to people as we walk instead of going to a busy place to talk to people. We work in the southern part of the ward, mainly in a place called Plaistow. A cool thing about this area is our stake has people from 110 countries! WEST HAM UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB plays right behind our house! Olympic Park is here also. I LOVE LONDON…IT HAS MY HEART!This is a pic of me with Bro. Bowie. We had an Elders Quorum ping-pong tourney & I lost to him!A fox is in our garden!
