A Wedding

Today was a first for us -- the first wedding that we have attended on our mission.  The Elders in the Palmetto Ward have been teaching a family.  Although living together and have a child together, they are not married.  They would like to be baptized.  However, before they can be baptized, they must be married (or at least not be living together).

This evening we attended their wedding in the Palmetto/Bradenton building.  Bishop Ririe of the Palmetto Ward performed the ceremony.  The Soto's were surprised at how many of their relatives came.  None of their relatives are members of the Church, and I noticed that the Elders were talking with several of them.

The couple seem really happy, the husband especially.  I will be conducting his baptismal interview tomorrow.

Elders Bowden and Ware and Bro. and Sis. Soto
