Wedding and Baptism

The week of a wedding and a baptism!! :)

On wednesday we were really lucky and got to go to the wedding of Joffre and Kati! :) Wow it was so special! we went to the registro de civil in the south part of the guayaquil city and watched them as they signed their papers and legally became man and wife! ... they are on their way to a wedding in the temple in a year!!

On friday was joffre´s baptism! This guy is awesome! He was so happy and excited to be baptized! he was baptized by kati´s son pedro, and he looked so happy to be there and be following the example of Jesus Christ. Hermana Childs and I got to sing "I Stand All Amazed" for a special musical number, because it is his favorite hymn. Joffe bore his testimony after he was baptized and it was an amazing testimony! He truly is converted to the Gospel. He expressed his love for the Church, Jesus Christ and Joseph Smith. He also said he knows that Thomas S Monson is a living prophet. He really knows these things, and told us he felt the Spirit after he was baptized, that he started crying in the font. It was so sweet! :) he will be such a great member and leader in the church here in ecuador!

As usual, we had some funny experiences this week. Yesterday when we were singing the opening hymn in a lesson we had, I started singing the words of "The Spirit of God" to the melody of "How Firm a Foundation"... and we sang almost the whole first verse before we stopped and realized it was wrong, because the people we were teaching were trying to get us to stop and fix the problem!! Hermana Childs and I couldnt stop laughing the rest of the song! :) haha! Also when I sing my opera songs for the members here, they are soooo suprised and almost fall off their chairs! haha! :)

Today we got to go to Isla Santay. Its a island and you ride your bike out to this beautiful island where the vegetation is so green and beautiful! we also got to see a bunch of real crocodiles! it was crazy! but lots of fun!

Im so excited and happy for Joffre and Kati. This week they made bigs steps in their lives and especially in the spiritual part of their lives. Marriage and baptism. Both events brought so much joy and happiness to their faces. I love seeing this in the people here! I know the Gospel brings so much joy and happiness. When we are following the commandments of God and choosing the right, He will shower us with blessings. Blessing that are temporal or physical and spiritual. He knows how to give us the things and blessings that we are in need of at the time we are in need of them. One of my favorite scriptures is in D&C and it talks about that when we receive any blessing, it is because we have been obedient to a law of God. So blessings are ALWAYS available when we are choosing the right! :)

I hope you all have a fantastic week! i love you all a lot!! thanks for everything! :)

les amo,
Hermana Warburton
