So this week was an amazing one full of toooooo many miracles, the Lord has been so merciful and has blessed us more than we really can believe!!!
Elder Morrow and I have been working hard, busy all the time, but the Lord has somehow managed to help us carry out his work, even though we hardly have that much time in the area. we have been working with a couple named Brayan and Katerin, super awesome young couple that wants to make changes in their lives! He grew up living a little more of a wild life, he played baseball, always partied, and didn't really care about what he did, she had a rough past of hanging around with a lot of different Guys, never finding true love... they have about 2 years together, have both grown up more, he is 21, she is 23, the both have one child, but none together. They both have had interest, but never have really been able to come to church, so they haven't progressed a ton. anyways these past few weeks miracles have happened, she dropped her work, so now they can assist church, they have accepted to prepare for baptism this coming weekend, and they just needed to keep the Law of Chastity, which means get married by law.
so to help them decide to take that step, we did the best thing possible, invited them to the temple! the ward had a trip and we invited them to come. they came and enjoyed an afternoon at the temple with some other young member couples, walking around the gardens, sitting on the lawns, chatting about the gospel and eternal families, seeing a demonstration of a sealing by president Corbitt, super awesome day! then Elder morrow and I got a chance to chat with brayan alone and we asked him how he felt about marriage with Katerin! he said he wanted to, and that he thinks that she did too, so we told him we would help him get ready to pop the question.
we took preparational steps by helping them get some rings, and work on their paperwork, then this monday we had a FHE in the house of Martin and Carolina, awesome members in the ward, we met on their roof, I cooked dominican dumplings, we shared about the family, and then Brayan took advantage of the moment to ask Katerin to MARRY HIM!!!!!!!! coolest (and trunkiest) moment ever!!!!!!!!! she said yes of course ;) one of the most special moments of my mission to be honest.
now we are planning on them being married this friday, and baptized this saturday in a white night that will be held in the stake!!! please pray that all goes well, and that they can complete this goal they have to receive the restored gospel :)
that was pretty much the highlight. I am driving tons, which still freaks me out, we pray all the time... i am teaching elder morrow as well.
had an awesome scripture study with pres Corbitt and E. Morrow, talked about Exceedingly Great Faith, and how it ties in with all of the plan of salvation, probably my favorite topic to study.
anyways all is well, i will be coming home on the 13th of June, which is very sure now. time is flying, gotta take advantage of these last 4 months!
love you all, hope you have a great week!
