A favorite couple of ours got married on Friday! :)
The wedding ceremony was beautiful! We had a lot of help from some wonderful members who have developed a strong friendship with the couple over the last few weeks. They helped us enormously to plan and put together the perfect wedding. A member from the Spanish Ward made the cake. The groom bought the flowers and we, with some help from a ward member, made the bouquet.
Then, on Sunday, the bride got baptized. Everything went smoothly. It was a wonderful baptism and the spirit was so strong. I am so grateful I had the privilege to be there. The groom bore his testimony in sacrament meeting.
On top of all that, we had another baptism in the Spanish Ward. The son of a member was baptized.
I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know all of these absolutely amazing people! They are incredible. I love them soooooooooooo much! It was truly one of the best weekends of my entire life.
We could not have done it without all the help we received. The members truly played their part very well. They took the "new bride" under their wing and made her feel worth a million bucks. The timing of everything was perfect. In reality, we as missionaries did very little and that's how it should be. :)
I love being a missionary! :D
Among other events this week:
- General Conference this weekend! So stoked!
- I got proposed to --- long story, super awkward
- I got to watch the Women's Conference :)
- One of the young members decided to make a service club and went around the neighborhood asking people if they needed help with anything. One lady accepted their offer to cut the grass. They didn't know how to use a lawnmower so they used scissors! hahaha it was pretty funny!
Anyway, as you can tell, it's been a fantastic week! Crazy busy, but super great!
I've learned a lot. We saw a lot of miracles in preparation for these two miracles. I'm grateful to have played just a small role in them. I think everyone should serve a mission. It's more fun than going to Disneyland!
