Buenas Tarde from Culiacán Sinaloa Mexico!
Things have been pretty challenging this week trying to learn a new area, new members, new investigators, new companion, everything new pretty much haha. But it has been a week where my testimony has been strengthened. My faith has strengthened in the Lord and His ways. Elder Cruz is a great companion. He has made it easier to learn things with. He always has a great attitude about everything and that helps me out a lot because the life of the mission is not easy.

Our area here in Culiacan is pretty big. We cover about 5 colonias here in our area of Los Pinos. There is a steep hill that we have to walk up almost everyday. And all we do is walk! There are no bikes. The first few days were kinda tiring from walking so much. It is sooo much different than Teacapan. There are a lot of businesses, cars, buses, people just going all the time. It's a big city, probably just a little bigger than Omaha.

My highlight of the week was when I tried praying a specific prayer. I remembered counsel that I learned in the CCM and I prayed specifically for someone to contact us. And that's exactly what happened. A man named Marco approached us and said he wants to talk to us! That was so cool for me.
The mission is full of fun, crazy, and spiritual experiences. This week we ate sushi with peanut butter which is pretty good by the way. The mission is hard but I wouldn't trade my time here for the world. Thanks for the support and prayers. God bless! Adios
