Most of what I do at IHQ involves some form of video production, media management, or social media work… or some combination of them. Tomorrow the Congress Office is hosting an event we have titled “Lunch and Learn”, where you lunch, learn, and share in the love of alliteration. One particular project Jodi and I worked on was a video to help rally the employees and officers of IHQ in excitement for Boundless. We recorded three things from several people: what they were excited about, the same thing said in a particular way, and then the phrase, “I am Boundless”. Sweetly simple. Anyway, some of the people we were eagerly excited to record were the General, Chief of the Staff, and their spouses. It isn’t every day you get one-on-one time with the first- and second-in-command of this abundant Army. While our interactions were briefly basic, it was cool to have an actual conversation with them. Each of them is a people person so it makes conversing incredibly easy.
Our pesky pests have finally finished their tormenting tantrums. Pest control has all but obliterated what was left of their repulsed residence. We definitely didn’t use the light for a few mornings but now we are pretty positive that they won’t be back.
On Saturday we went to IKEA with a few friends. While we can’t actually accumulate any more items (particularly furniture), we do enjoy Swedish meatballs and perusing the showrooms. We also learned that some bus routes in London don’t go in a straight line but rather roam in a circle around an area. This unknown fact caused us to wait wondering why we were not getting any closer to our destination. Sometimes you should really read the map.
Sunday was our last day of our “corps tour” and where we ended our search for a church family at Wood Green. Interestingly enough, Wood Green is also where we decided to keep attending for our year here in London- at least, when we aren’t out on Boundless duty. Wood Green is a contemporary corps that has integrated brass into their worship team making for a nice combination of old and new Army. There is a solid structure and core of people already but still room for us to contribute, which is one of the biggest things we looked for in a corps. Of course, we forgot to take a picture to post here.

Fake food… there was real lunch before.
