We've been working for weeks with Ricardo trying to help him get his answer and what it came down to was he cannot get an answer if he doesn't ask! Well, he finally did ask God if the Book of Mormon is true and got his answer in a way God knew it would confirm to him that he needs to be baptized.
Since this moment Maria and Ricardo have been on fire, swallowing all of the Law of Chastity and the Word of Wisdom in one sitting and ready to follow all the rules with no fear or concern. They simply asked, where can we get married and which of our tea do we need to throw away?
But as we come to a closing of this transfer with only two weeks left and the dates of the marriage and baptism undecided, it may come to the point where I may not be here to witness it. But I don't really care! Whether these ordinances are performed or viewed by me it does not matter, so long as they partake of these necessary saving ordinances!!
They will always be a part of my life, even after my mission, they will be under my loving care for the rest of my life!
Let us not overwhelm ourselves with confusion and emotions, settling for the little bursts of the spirit we can feel like Ricardo only some short time ago. But seek answers by asking and by partaking of the whole fruit!
Until next week!
