It was a wonderful week because we had the baptism of Fransisco! We were really excited and happy for him. He has had a rough life and doesn't have support to be baptized from his wife or kids. We had a special surprise from Presidente Velez and his wife who came to support Fransisco. Watching Fransisco come up out of the water made me smile really big. After the service we celebrated Fransisco's 77th birthday and ate cake! The next day he was confirmed with the Gift of the Holy Ghost and he started to cry and all the members were so nice and congratulated him in this step in towards salvation.

One day during the week we were walking through the street to our next plan when I had the impression to visit another contact here in Culiacan we've been visiting often, Alberto. The Spirit lead us to Alberto because he told us that he's been in jail and got out recently. He said that he worked in marijuana field and they were given guns and when the military arrive they can protect themselves. He tells us that he is sad that all his friends died and drinks a lot. We bore testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and we have the happiness that he's been looking for in his life. It was a very spiritual experience that day.

We've been suffering more since the warm weather is starting up again and it's only January. The heat here is a lot different than Teacapan, the sun just burns and in near the sea there's more humidity.

Today for P-day we went bowling with 2 other companionships at one of the Plazas near to our house. We also played pool and it was really fun! I got second place in bowling.
I've learned a lot of things with my companion Elder Cruz. He is so patient and kind to everyone and this cambio seemed liked it flew by with him. We've been hard at work, contacting many people, and doing the work of the Lord. I get a lot of peace reading the scriptures after a hard days work. It's hard because almost always things don't work out like we want them to but our faith never hinders and we keep moving forward with a postive attitude.
