Getting Hitched - Week 62

Maxi and Noelia were married for this life this last Friday!  We had the opportunity to go and it was so wonderful.  So proud of them and that they can now prepare to be married for time and all eternity in the temple.  They are right on track with the baptism this Saturday!
Well a few crazy things happened this week, and the first one I was a little worried about sharing because of you Mom, but I am going to share it anyway.  Last Monday we got to the cyber cafe later because of the activity that we had as a stake, so we had to go all the way to downtown to write.  I felt afraid because it was late, and the roads had been shut down.  I didn't know why but when we left cyber....I knew...  It was the birthday of one of the soccer clubs called Talleres and they had prepped a parade, more like a riot on the very road where we were.  People came in their jerseys and everything, over 400 people, firing guns, throwing rocks through store windows, one shattered behind us and even the swat team came with their big shields.  Lets just say I was walking very quickly to get out of there. Elder Unck saw 50 pesos on the ground and was going to pick it up, but didn't because he didn't want to lose his comp, me who was cruising...don't worry they only hit elder Unck a little bit but we got out fine.

There they are recently married!!!
Signing the papers, it was much shorter than I thought it would be! 
The ceremony was only around 15 minutes.

With their family and friends, from the scout group.
That is why they were so interested in the church was from Scouts.

We decided to get in there with the photos as well.
Elder Weller and Elder 
Alfaro (Alfaro was Elder Uncks comp before me
and they were teaching the family so he got to come to the wedding too. 

Maxi, Noelia, and Nazarena

Outside of the buidlng waiting to throw some rice! Hooray!

Also during the week they cut our power...We lost light for 3 days so we had to plan and do things by candlelight, just like the very first missionaries!! 

So we studied by candlelight at night and everything. 
It was a good experience, but glad that we have light again.

We made a Kirstin Kaka in the dark anyway with the little food that we had left.
