At 12 Ashburn Gardens in South Kensington, London, dawn broke about six hours ago.
The property is known to us as Daniel House, and last night marked the first time that it has been inhabited by Samford students and faculty since an extensive renovation began last year. Construction is ongoing, so access to portions of the house will be restricted for a few additional weeks, but the guests are now inside, safe and sound. My thanks turn this morning to the hundreds of people who have made gifts to support the project, to the London-based staff who support the operations there, to our architects and contractor in London, and especially to Lauren Doss, Nancy Biggio and Jeff Poleshek, who labored long last week to prepare the house. They’re headed home today.
The world is better because of the life-changing experiences that have occurred—and will occur—at the Daniel House.
