On a tremendous day for Team GB (Sheffield is going to come to stand still when Jess Ennis arrives home!), I was privileged to share in the wedding celebrations of Laura Gill and Alistair Smyth. My friend Laura looked like a goddess on the day which was just brilliant. Laura headed up several mission teams to Egypt in past years, and still keeps her love for the Middle East going. Every guest was given an olive wood heart carved in Bethlehem with the words Faith, Hope or Love carved into them (taken from the famous Bible text on love in 1 Corinthians 13). Even more special, Alistair and Laura invited their guests to make a financial donation to the Micah68 project in Fairhaven, Alexandria where Laura made such a contribution to the lives of the young people with learning difficulties. A really special wedding gift – which has achieved the target to raise much needed gym equipment for the school.
