The story that follows is a special one. Let’s rewind to the summer of 2008. Laura has just returned from Uganda. She was helping out with her churches youth group and was helping to lead a trip to a big summer music festival. Anyone who knows our story knows this is how we met.
Anyways, during one of the concerts Compassion International was there speaking on behalf of children in need. Rob really felt that he wanted to sponsor a child so he got up to go sign up for one. This made Laura’s heart swoon because she saw that he had a compassionate heart. When he got back from choosing his sponsored child Laura wanted to see who he had chosen. Much to Laura’s surprise and delight she saw that he had picked a little girl from Uganda. Not only that but she lived right in the same town that Laura had just spent two months serving in. This little seven year old girl may have even passed by Laura on the road while she was in a Busia. Some may think that that is a coincidence but we think it’s God. Only God could orchestrate something so precise and beautiful. Also, pretty sure Laura was convinced she was going to marry Rob right then in that moment. Rob knew that Laura had just returned from Africa but didn’t know the country and definitely not the town. Ever since we were together we have been planning on going back to Uganda and meeting our sweet, Recheal.
As we were preparing for our visit we realized that March 11th was Recheal’s 18th birthday. We couldn’t have planned it anymore perfect!! We were so excited to make this a birthday she wouldn’t forget! Below are the pictures that tell the story of that beautiful day.
Follow along for more of our life, work, style, and, of course, very attractive people.
