Today we had the awesome opportunity to go to the temple. We can only go on Mondays, when Monday is a holiday. But for some reason, they change all the holidays to the nearest Monday because they like it that way here for some reason, haha. So sometimes we get to go, and meet other missionaries, and get to do a session. Lots of fun, even though we have to get up at 4:30 to get there in time, hahaha. So when we were there I ran into the other Elders from my CCM group (I was the only gringo) which was a ton of fun. They are all great guys. But what was really interesting, was that Hermana Lugo was there, and she told us she needed our help. Her daughter (Winnie) was bringing her boyfriend to the temple to show him around. He is a non member, and she is less active. We have been trying to help them for a long time, and recently we were able to teach her boyfriend, and they have started coming to church. They have been living with each other for a while, and even had a kid together. So they didn't want anything to do with the church. But somehow she convinced him to listen to the missionaries, and they are going to try and do all they can to try and help him get baptized, so they can get sealed in the temple! But first, they need to get married. I guess he was afraid to ask, or was afraid because marriage is a big commitment, but I guess Winnie was ready. So they had this whole thing planned out for him to be blind folded, and he had to go around the temple grounds with a blindfold on and they had various people from the ward waiting in certain places to ask him random questions about Winnie, their son Alan, and other weird things. In the end, we came out in front of the temple, and he took his blindfold off and Winnie was standing there with flowers and a sign that said "¿Quieres eres casarte conmigo?" It was real cool. My job was to film the whole thing. I'm so excited for them, and I hope the best for them. Ceser (the boyfriend) is a real stud. I've known him since I got here. and he has been a real great friend of mine. So has the whole Lugo family...which is a big family, basically takes up half the ward, hahaha. So that was a pretty cool experience.
Other than that we have just been working our butts off!
That sounds like a ton of fun what you and dad got to do. Happy anniversary! You guys are the best parents ever! Thanks for all you have done for me and the bros. I hope everything has been great at home! I love you and miss you like crazy.
