Hi Sis, Yesterday I watched Fireproof again. I really lost track of the count and though I only watched it partly and though the performance cannot be considered of Hollywood caliber, I still can't get enough of the movie.
As I saw Caleb shouting to his wife I realized that the sermon series about mariage and relations by our brother Armand and this movie have exactly the same storyline; The man wants to be respected and the woman wants to be loved, which indeed confirms and confirmed what both, me & Valeria, had been individually searching for independently.
Then I remembered how you played an important role in my decision to marry the woman that God has chosen for me; "If you can recognized the children, why not also honoring the mother through recognition of marriage?" While saying that to me you walked away, leaving me speechless behind and eventually years later the seed that you had sown and nurtured began to bloom and as a result of that, next month, we will have our 5 year anniversary; a marriage where you also were the legal witness.
I never realized that the movie had also sown within me. I believe that it also contributed to the journey back to our Heavenly Father in addition to your unconditional love and loyalty towards me.
I want to thank you again, but most of all, I thank our Heavenly Father for putting the words in your mouth, that led to an act aligned with His will.
I pray that this testimony may serve as an inspiration for others who have not yet made the decision, but are considering, but especially those who never had the thought of marriage.
I declare that our House of Peace will give marriage that prominent place as desired by our beloved brother Armand, all for the honor and glory of our Lord's name.
I pray abundant blessings over your's and brother Andrew's marriage and your familiy and that you may keep touching lives and that God may show you more fruits, just like He has shown them through me.
I pray that your marriage will hit gold and beyond and that it keeps serving as an inspiration and a living testimony to others.
This all I pray in the name of our King Jesus. Amen!
Your dear "adeh" (little brother), Frederico 11 Sep 2019
