Member Missionary Moment #15
This post is part of a year long series where each week I strive to complete and item from a list of 101 Ways to do Member Missionary Work. Feel free to join me in the work!
Actually, there are now 102 ways to do member missionary work! My husband discovered one to add to the list. Idea #102 is: Invite a non-member friend or family member to be married by LDS clergy!
About two weeks ago a co-worker of his, Pedro, mentioned he wanted to marry his girlfriend but did not want the affair to be big and expensive. They did not have a lot of family in town, or others to invite; just a few close friends. Steve mentioned that his BIL was a Mormon bishop and might be willing to marry them for free (Pedro and his fiance live quite near our BIL). After a few days of working out details the date was set for last Saturday. The above picture is of the bride and groom at the ceremony held in their apartment. Our whole family attended and help them celebrate briefly afterward.
