Before the Wedding

Our trip to Kenya began with the announcement of a marriage. Gavin was living in Kenya where he had met his true love, Linda. Gavin contacted his spiritual mother, Della, to tell her they would be marrying in three weeks time. But, Gavin was from Nigera and his parents would not be able to attend his wedding. Della knew in her heart that she should be at that wedding. She did not want to go by herself to a place she had never been before. She invited me. I prayed about it. Talked to Dave about it. We prayed about it. A week later Della and I were booked on a flight to Nairobi.

Linda has the final make-up touches applied.

Just look at those beautiful roses!
