Bessy Macotto's marriage to Tito Cofre

Bessy Macotto, a Honduran, is a fellow missionary with Latin America Mission, serving as the Director of Christian Camping International in South America. She has been a dear friend to our family, such that our children even call her "Tia" (Auntie) Bessy. She, like me, found her "Prince Charming" in a foreign country and who was also a student in one of CCI's counselor training courses, both of whom are older singles just like Alfredo and I . We rejoice with the gift God gave them in each other. Because they both traveled from Argentina to Honduras, Alfredo and I were able to attend the "Engagement Ceremony" where Tito Cofre, the gentleman she met while serving in Argentina, asked for her hand in marriage on March 29, 2010 while at her parents home in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

Then, they performed their civil marriage ceremony, which in Latin America, is a separate ceremony performed by a notary lawyer. This ceremony took place on April 11, 2010, exactly two days before we celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary.
