When God Spoke to Me… Quechua Way

One Quechua woman (W) approached me (L) after she had a pap test.
This is the conversation that we had in Spanish English, thanks to Pauline who did the translation for us:
W: Where are you came from.?
L: Indonesia.
W: How’s the condition in Indonesia? Does women have a lot of children the village?
L: yes…. (I was so surprise she know where Indonesia is…)
W: How many children do you have?
L: None yet.
W: Why? You use contraception?
I paused… I feel like this lady is going too far. Even Paulina my friend who translated it thinks that that was too personal. But I decided to answer it anyway.
L: Nope, I want to have kids and my husband and I willing to have as many children as God gives us. It is just no the time yet…

W: whatever happen I know God loves you. I’ll pray for you.
….and then she hugs me tight
L: Amen. Muchas gracias Mamasita!
This conversation was the highlight of my day or maybe highlight of my trip this time.
God wants to say something personal that sometime we won’t let Him to say it because it doesn’t looks and sounds good. How I am so blessed knowing that thousand miles away somebody pray for me. How great is my God!
