Our First MX Wedding

We were so happy to hold a wedding last night for Ulises and Ninfa!

If you receive the Prayer Band Newsletter Email from Michael, you may remember us asking prayer for Ulises and his family over a year ago.  Since that time, the Lord has saved this couple and changed their lives!  Ulises was an alcoholic, but the Lord has helped him to turn from this vice.

As new believers and a couple that now wanted to follow the Lord, Ulises and Ninfa approached us about wanting to get married.  They have two precious girls and wanted to raise their family for the Lord.    We were more than happy to try and plan a church wedding.  There was much excitement throughout our church family!  And Ulises and Ninfa were so happy to get married!  They had smiles on their face all evening!

The ladies of the church did a beautiful job decorating!

Check out these beautiful fresh flowers that hung from the ceiling!

Saying their vows.  Most of our people here are not accustomed to church weddings and vows, so this was a very special and sacred time.

Congratulations to Ulises and Ninfa!!!

We are also excited that this weekend, Ulises and Ninfa will both be getting baptized since they have completed the discipleship course.  Praise the Lord for the work He has done in the lives of Ulises and Ninfa!!
