|Doris & Hared and their missionary assisted wedding!|
The awesomest part of this week was the wedding we helped make happen. We have an investigator named Doris who is the wife of an inactive member, but she wants to be baptized. So we had to get them married first. They got it all planned out, and we helped where we could, and it went down on Saturday. Everything was perfect!
This week my testimony of eternal families has grown a lot. With the wedding of Doris and Hared, an awesome family home evening with the Castellanos family in the house of the Lopez family with the theme of families, and preparing to go to the temple with our recent convert that already has the name of her dad and multiple other family names, I can testify that families can be forever. Through the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ through the prophet Joseph Smith, we now have knowledge and access to the other ordinances and covenants that are necessary to become part of the family of Abraham and heir to the promised blessings of exaltation and eternal families. There is no other way to receive it. The temple is the way to eternal life, therefore it should be our main goal. It's my main goal, at least after my mission.
Love you all!
-Elder Ben Jackson
