If you’ve been following our blog for long then you know that I lost a part of my heart to Africa back in 2011 after visiting for a missions trip through Horizon International.  Since then, I have longed to go back.  After meeting with Kathleen, and hearing more about how she and Javan met, I knew that I was going to love being a part of their day.  And, their day truly was as beautiful as they are!  The beautiful emotion they all shared was captured throughout the day…I’ll let the photos tell their story…
