We’re missionaries and we go on dates. Gotta keep the romance alive!
We went to an Argentine restaurant here in Oaxaca. I had a delicious arrachera steak for about $9, while hubby opted for grilled fish…since he knew he’d be finishing my steak!
Then we had some fun with the camera:
It’s important for every couple to set aside time for each other. Many times missionaries don’t do this; sometimes due to ministry overload, other times due to finances, and even at times for difficulty in finding trustworthy child care (boy do I have stories of that!)
We’ve learned (now that we’re older and a bit wiser) that it is essential to make time and save up for such occasions. After all, if the marriage ends up failing, what good has the ministry done? All is lost.
As Christ’s ambassadors, we must first represent in our own marriage the relationship between Christ and his bride, the church.
And woo-hoo! what fun that can be!
