I did an intercambio with Elder Greep Thursday/Fruday so that he could do the baptismal interview for José and Iveth. We had such fun together again! He has become one of my best friends. We´re are super afraid that this next transfer we will be separated and will no longer be in the same district.

José and Iveth were super sick this week. We gave blessing of health and they both got better. However their parents were still super sick on Saturday. Thus the baptism got postponed to this weekend.

My favorite miracle this week came from a moment of silence. We were in the middle of teaching a lesson when I felt that we just were not connecting with this menos activo. It felt more like teaching a lesson and not teaching a person. While my companion spoke I tried to figure out/seek inspiration on how we could help this man. When it was my turn to speak again I felt that I should not say anything. Thus when I did not speak my companion began to speak again. I slightly tapped him with my knee and he stopped. We both just sat there, waiting. After what seemed like 10 minutes of silence, this menos activo began to open up to us. It was a complete change in him. And the Spirit overtook the lesson. We have been trying to win the trust of this menos activo for months because his wife is not a member. Finally after letting the Spirit talk to his heart during a moment of silence, we have had this momento clave that we have been searching.

¡Hasta luego!
