As we made our way out of Richmond, Peter began telling us the story of the house we were driving toward. Westover Plantation was owned by the Byrd family – a family that is well known around Richmond. Which is fitting since these two were raised in River City. He had been researching it all day. Peter is a planner, I learned, but neither Mary nor Peter could have planned their meeting. Mary had been spending the better part of the past year preparing herself for the mission field. Those doors were closing and as they were, God put Peter in her life, and on her heart. The two began dating and… well, they wouldn’t be featured here if they hadn’t gotten engaged!
