July 23, 2019 (Oban, Mull, Iona)

Recap of the day –

Today we left Oban for an hour ferry ride to the Isle of Mull. From there our bus drove us for an hour to the foot ferry that would take us to Iona. The road was one lane with places for oncoming vehicles to pause for passing. Once on Iona the sun came out and the day was amazing. Everyone loved the Abbey and landscape on Iona as well as the history from our guide, Sarah, and Kristy’s talk with the group laying the foundation for further talks about the importance of the Bible. Highlights were hearing why it’s important to study the Scriptures.

On our way to the ferry, which will take us from from Oban to the Isle of Mull.
