Bunnies, Stake Conference and Dead Bodies


“Whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.”

Alma 36:3

Hey everyone it was another warm and exciting week here in Culiacán! We had a decent week, not a great week with our investigators because they were all busy and we weren't able to teach them :( We are praying and fasting that we can have miracles in our area that is progressing very slowly. Our efforts in contacting people in the street were improving but the people are so rude to us sometimes and have crazy ideas about us Mormons. It's hard getting rejected by the people but we haven't lost our spirit and drive to help everyone come unto Christ!
Lunch with Hna Luz, enchiladas
In our area this week we were walking back to our house and we noticed a lot of police cars and firetrucks down the street on which we live and so we decided to go check it out and we saw the fireman down in the sewers looking for 2 dead bodies. They eventually found the bodies not too far from our area so that's kinda scary. Everyday Elder Cruz and I try to have something exciting to write in our journals in our adventures here in Culiacán
Lots of people searching
Looking for dead bodies
We had Stake Conference this weekend and so we were able to hear uplifting messages from our inspired leaders. This is the last stake conference for Presidente and Hermana Velez so that was sad :( Hermana Velez gave a talk about the importance of paying a full tithe and that there isn't a reason why we shouldn't give to the Lord when He has given us so much and the blessing are there for us to receive. Presidente Velez is such a great speaker, he is like listening to Elder Holland haha. He counseled us to not try to be good people, but more importantly to be better than we were the day before. As we read our scriptures, pray, serve others, attend church, and obey the commandments we improve our faith and love for our Heavenly Father.
I made spaghetti
Today for P-day we went with the Elders in our district and Elder Villeda and his companion who we met in Escuinapa to play pool in Forum the big mall and eat at Taco Moreno again which is always a cultural blessing haha!
Pday:Taco Moreno
This week I studied a lot about faith, repentance and the need for each of us to have a correct and divine baptism like our Savior Jesus Christ set for us. I love how through Christ's Atonement everyone has the opportunity to be free from the burden of our sins and be perfected. What a blessing it is to help the people in my mission understand the Gospel that Christ taught when he came to the earth.
Elder Cruz made tacos

I want to testify that God our loving Heavenly Father knows us personally and wants us to learn and understand His plan for us here during our earth life so we can someday return to His presence and live with him and our families for eternity!
