Hello family and friends. I hope that you all had a great week. This week here in Puebla has been a really good one. I was able to go and do some interchanges with a few different missionaries this past week. I even got to go back to the first area that I trained in as a missionary and work with President. It was good and I was able to get outside of the city and back to the little towns for a little while.
My companion and I had the opportunity to be able to use the priesthood a lot this week and were able to see miracles. My testimony of the priesthood was strengthened as I was able to see the power of the priesthood. So we found some new investigators this week and they came to church with us. So during sacrament it was hard! It was hot in there and someone stole the microphone and so we could’t hear anything and there were babies crying in every part of the chapel. So there was one sister who her baby started to cry and she took him out and then came back in when he was calmed down a little and the baby is super little right… Like 1 month old and it started to cry again. But it was crying really hard like it was in pain and she took him out again and we could hear him crying like that for like 15 min and a few sisters were going out to see if she was ok and see if they could help her. Her husband was on the stand so he couldn’t really come down so we went out and we asked her if she wanted us to give her baby a blessing. It was sad because she is a brand new mom and its her first child and she was crying because she didn’t know what to do. So we went into a room and we gave the baby a blessing and she asked me to do it. We commanded whatever was making the baby be in pain to leave its body and then we ended the blessing and it stopped crying and fell asleep. It was a really cool experience and it made me think for when I will have my own kids. It was sad to see the baby like that because I put myself in the place of the mom and it made me think, but it was an experience really cool to see the power of the priesthood work as well.
So I will most likely be leaving the offices this change to go out to an area and finish my mission. I will miss it here in the offices and being with President but I’m excited to get back out and work in the field.
So this week we were next to our house working and I had to use the bathroom so we went to the house and as we were leaving my companion kicked a soccer ball and broke the window in our apartment. So now he is buying a new window. It was pretty funny!
Congrats to everyone that graduated. I miss you all and hope that you have a great week.
Love Elder Cypers
