Kicked out of the Catholic Church

So this email is going to be relatively short.

A pretty busy week, Filled with Marriages, interviews, baptisms, and much much more. I will share just two experiences, that have made a pretty pretty good week, into a absolutely stupendous week.
Marriage: We have a brother, Brother Jennie. Now Brother Jennie has been a investigator for years (Since 2013). The problem is, he was not married. So last week, we were told that he was getting a free wedding at the Catholic Church, Sunday at 3. Knowing we would be busy (as we normally are on Sundays) we decided to attend. We arrived, and upon arriving, maybe 15 minutes pass by and him and his wife get pulled to the back. Many couples had done this, but they were only there for a few minutes. Jennie was there for probably 15-20 minutes (longer actually). Upon 10 minutes passing, both me and my companion were scared. Did we ruin their wedding? Did they see us Mormon Missionaries and question Jennie behind the scenes? We were worried. Not to help, we were waiting at the back, when this lady comes over and asks us what we are doing there. We respond that we are there to watch the wedding. Again, she asks us who we are there to see, and one of the members who were with us said his name. Fear crept both into my companion and I, as we were told to leave, unsure if brother Jennie was going to get married. Both me and my companion said a silent prayer in our hearts, and left. Since we had a baptismal interview to get to, we decided that we would leave, and hope for the best. Upon finishing the first Baptismal interview, we got a call from that same member, informing us that brother Jennie was now Married ๐Ÿ˜€ So Grateful to the Lord for this miracle ๐Ÿ™‚
The Second, is with a brother by the name of Brother Jecho. Now, Brother Jecho is a referral from Sister Ninya. Now they have been friends for a long time, and Brother Jecho has been going to church for the past few weeks. The first time we taught him, he did not accept a Baptismal invitation. As I sat down next to him at church, he turns to me and says “I want to be a member of the church”. My heart swelled with Joy as he shared this information with me! He is seeing the fruits of the church, and really likes it. That one will take a month or so, but I am so happy! Who knew that a simple member referral, could turn into someone desiring to enter baptism??
That is about it for the week! Hopefully everyone has a marvelous week! ๐Ÿ™‚
By the way, we got a new mission president ๐Ÿ™ย  He will start on July 1st.ย President Eduardo Argana
With Love,
Elder Wilson
