This was an unexpected event...On Saturday 8 August, on our one year anniversary in Ghana, Elder Brown had the privilege of walking Theresa down the aisle in the Presbyterian Church in Adweso. We had been introduced to Theresa and Raymond the previous Sunday by our missionaries. We had the chance to meet Raymond's family and had a lovely visit. Theresa is from Sweden, half Chilean, and she had met Raymond when she came to Ghana to do some volunteer work and stayed with a host family. One thing led to another...
Theresa is a member of the church and has been to Ghana 5 times now. I think they were hoping to marry in Sweden, but as there was no visa forthcoming, they married in Ghana. Elder Brown felt an inadequate substitute, as none of her family were in attendance, but I think she was happy she had someone to walk her down the aisle.
