December Wedding 2013

Natasha was baptized when we first got here.  She is currently serving as the Young Women's President.  She was married to Zang on Friday night.  As we arrived at the Church, everyone was waiting for the Bride and Groom to come from the Mayor's office where they were married.  The Church was decorated and many people were there.  As we walked in,  they asked me to come and play the keyboard, but they also asked Elder Whitesides to speak.  He did a great job.  He told them they were each like a track of a railroad.  They needed to set goals together for family, Church service and making it to the Temple one day.  He said, if they each went a different way, the train would crash.

Natasha called all the missionaries over and told them she was so grateful for their service and their examples.  She said she knew they would have to leave early, so she arranged to have them fed first.  It was so thoughtful of her.  She had many other things to think about on her wedding day, but took time out for them.

The cars are always decorated for the Bride and Groom.

They took Elder Whitesides and I into President Bala's office and brought in a special plate just for us.  Yes, those are fish heads. They just eat the bones and all.  We picked at the tails and then gave the rest to President Bala and his District Clerk.  They were so happy that we weren't very hungry.

There was dancing afterwards.  They tell me that they danced all night.  They love to dance.  When you hear the music they start to move.
