Happy Old People
Saturday we had another couple from our ward go through the temple. They are in their sixties and are the typical Mexican conversion story. The Hermanas found them and taught them the gospel, wherein they realized that they needed to get married. After having lived together for decades, they were married one year ago, and then baptized the next day. He is presently serving as the ward secretary. Their sealing was supported by 24 people from their ward--very sweet. After they were sealed, one of the missionaries that taught them was proxy for their deceased daughter who was sealed to them. The Relief Society President, who went through the temple for the first time a month ago, said the ceremony was the sweetest thing she had ever seen and that she "had never imagined anything so beautiful." The ward took advantage of the event to have a big party for them afterwards--wedding cake and all.
