Nearly four years ago Penny came to the Mission. She was brought in from the streets by the police. Neglected, scrawny, bruised and angry. Set in her own ways and too stubborn to listen. We knew that this tough woman was going to be a hard nut to crack...and we had our work cut out for us! So the journey began and years later we can proudly stand next to this beautiful woman and call her our daughter. She has found her worth in Christ and she loves to help others. Penny has taken charge of the front office and does her work with pride. How privileged we are to be part of her journey and see her grow into the daughter of the King. Corrie came looking for a room to rent after a harrowing divorce. A few months ago Corrie came to K and asked for Penny's hand in marriage. (K and I are mom and dad to the people at the Mission)
On Saturday 15 March they were married and I was given the task to play photographer.

I always love to catch the look on the groom's face when he sees his bride.

Soon to be Mr and Mrs.
Flowers all done by a friend of the Mission.
First communion as a married couple.
I love capturing the little things.

Two beautiful girls.
...and my prayer for them is that God will be the golden thread that binds them together throughout their life together.
