Working without Working

Hola Everyone...
This week was really great...we had a great turnout yesterday in Church...we had about 30 people in the Gospel Principles class which is lots haha...Usually there are 10...so that means lots of Recient Converses, Investigators, and Menus Actives came...It was a perfect end to a hot week haha...I will share 2 stories from this week...
The First story is about a Companion exchange that I had with an Elder Gonzalez...About a week ago Elder Gonzalez had to go to the Hospital because his feet were all swollen and were hurting a lot..Turns out that he had a type of infection that made his feet swell and hurt....the doctor gave him orders to rest a week and to not work...The doctor was mainly worried about him walking everyday all day long...so we decided to do exchanges....My companion went with the Companion of Elder Gonzalez and I went with Elder Gonzalez....Elder Gonzalez asked if we were going to go to my house so he could keep the rule of NO WALKING...I told him that I dont do very well being in a house all day long...I told him that we were going to fulfill our purpose as missionaries but we werent going to walk too much...so we walked the two blocks to the bus stop and we got up on a bus...I told him that he could sit down in one seat...and that I would announce who we were and why we are here and we can both contact the whole bus....We took turns contacting the people as they got on the bus...We did that for the whole day...As we finished the Exchanges I told Elder Gonzalez that we cannot lose one moment in Gods Work...and even though we cannot walk we can still share the gospel...he and his companion put that into practice for the rest of his No Work Week haha...They contacted tons of people it was amazing....
The other experience that we had this week was that Eduardo (the youngman I mentioned 2 weeks ago) was in the hospĂ­tal doing some tests about some medication...He wasnt able to go to church last week because of these tests...and it seemed that he was going to be in there for another Sunday as well...we visited him Saturday....and he said that he would be leaving on the upcoming Wednesday..we were a little bummed because his Baptismal Date is planned for this Saturday and if he wouldnt have been able to go to church yesterday that baptism wouldnt have worked out...And here comes the miracle...After lots of prayers everything went well in the hospital and ...He was able to leave Sunday morning at 10 o clock..go home and get ready and he to church with us...It was so crazy... We hope everything goes well this week so that he can be baptized on Saturday....
Thanks for all of your prayers on my Behalf...
Love You Guys
Elder Child

Part of Contacting a Bus is that we hand the person who accept a visit our Agenda and they write their Address down so that we can go visit them...All of the extra pages of my agenda are full of addresses...haha
