If there was ever a love and marriage orchestrated by God, it was Avery and Katherine Mascoll’s. Avery and Katherine were together for literally one day before they got engaged and were married seven months later.
Why the sudden commitment? They just knew God was leading them to be together.
For all the enquiring minds, Avery explained, chuckling.
“I asked her to be my girlfriend on December 23, 2012, and I proposed to her on Christmas Day. We were friends for a very long time. It was funny because we went to school together at Coleridge & Parry but we were in different age groups and didn’t know each other. Her church was in St James, mine was in St George, so our paths never crossed really.
“When we started working on committees together at our various churches our paths finally crossed. But it was strictly friendship. Then I realised one day the twinkle in my eye was getting a bit bright and shining a bit more than it was before. Then we started to ask ourselves what we were going to do. We were both youth leaders in the church so we decided to just be friends but the passion started getting a bit hotter so we knew it had to happen,” Avery said with a laugh. (DB)
