A Dream Come True

December 14th was a special day in the lives of Porfirio and Yamilet, a couple that we have been very close to for 5 years now.  They have lived in "union libre" (lived together without being married) for 5 years, and when they gave their lives to Jesus they wanted to get married in obedience to God.  They have had a desire to serve together as a married couple, to glorify God with their marriage and to be an example to others by being obedient to God.  ("Union Libre" is VERY common here in Costa Rica.)  For the past 4 years they have prayed for the finances and paperwork to come through and for issues in Porifirio's past to be resolved so that they could move forward.  On December 14th, we were able to help make this dream a reality as we walked them down the aisle to commit their lives to one another as husband and wife.  What a truly emotional night this was and such a HUGE testimony to others of God's faithfulness and of the power of prayer.  We are so excited about what God has for this amazing couple and we are so blessed to be a part of their lives!
