Lionel Richie had the right idea when he sang “Love Will Find a Way” because a Maitland community worker wants to help a homeless couple tie the knot.Chris Boshoff and Sanna van Wyk met on the streets eight years ago and have been together ever since. They now share a tent under a tree on a open field in Maitland but recently decided that they want to be married in the eyes of God.Initially a local minister agreed to marry the couple at the end of a Sunday service but when community worker Maria Strachan heard about it she knew that she wanted to do something to make this day special for the bride and groom.“This is something special that they want to do and in God’s eyes everybody is special,” says Maria.“I (have known) the two of them for a long time and come from a similar situation. It is only through the grace of God that I am on my feet today but there were people who made me realise how special I am and now it is my turn.“They are serious about what they want to do and I am gathering a group of helpers who are helping to put it all together.” Maria adds that there were already some people in the community who have pledged their support to make the day special for the couple.“I would like to thank some special people who are making this decision to marry special for them,” she says.“Anthony Hall from the Recovering Addicts Empowering Lives (RAEL) will be sending them on a two-day honeymoon and Jean-Pierre Lourens will be making their wedding cake.“Octavia Adams will be doing the grooming and make-up on their wedding day and Pastor Shireen Dreyer from Transforming Lives will be supplying flowers on the day. Two ministers from the area will also be conducting the ceremony.”Now Maria is looking for some more good Samaritans in the community to help add to the occasion.“We need a small hall or venue where we can host a reception for the couple and a donation of rings for them is also welcome.“There is also the need for a sponsor for the catering but we welcome any assistance to make this a special day – even somebody with a nice car to drive them will be a big help.”The groom, Chris, is originally from the Free State and met Sanna about nine years ago when the company he worked for closed down.“I am a mechanic and had a good job but it all changed when the company I worked for in Salt River closed down,” he says.“I still do odd jobs in construction but I can’t get a permanent job. Sanna and I have been together for a long time and I feel that if I make things right with God by getting married – the rest will follow and he will look after us.” For more information about the needs for the wedding contact Maria on 078 215 2374.
