Day 4: Preston

Creeper picture of Peter Fagg!
On September 24th we took a church tour around Preston with our guide Peter Fagg! We focused on the early missions. It was so cool to see sites that are so important to the history of the church in Great Britain.St. Wilfrid St. is important because this is where the early missionaries saw the evil spirits on the wall for about an hour and a half before they called them off with the Priesthood. When Joseph Smith heard about this his heart leaped with joy because he knew that something good was about to happen here.This is the house the missionaries stayed at while in Preston.

The Ribble River where the first baptisms were! We learned that the first day there were 10 baptisms and that there was a foot race between two men to get baptized first!The Preston Temple!
