Culiacan Sunsets

1 Nephi13:37 And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.

Another week here in Culiacán and things are still heating. We had a lot of success this week with our investigators, because two of them came to church on Sunday for all three hours! We picked them up with our Ward Mission Leader and they had a great first experience at church and the meetings. Pilar our investigator with a baptismal date for 25 of June came and another lady named Rosa Maria whose husband died not too long ago. Rosa Maria is awesome she seems to be really interested and we were in church and she was taking notes and asked me what is baptism so that was cool haha. We were super happy because investigators coming to church doesn't happen a lot here.We had another good week for contacts.

An interesting experience with Pilar this week, He has a good friend named Adolfo and Adolfo agreed to listen to our message this week and we taught the Word of Wisdom and it was the first lesson with Adolfo and he read the whole pamphlet to Pilar and basically taught the lesson to him and was asking inspired questions it was one of the weirdest and coolest things, haha.

We are going to change houses with the family that shares the same apartment complex that we stay in because they are looking for a house with more space, our house is bigger than theirs and they have 5 and its only Elder Tineo and I so we said it was okay to change with them. The interesting thing is we have been praying specifically to teach a family of 5 and so I don't think that's coincidence that God put them in our path and have this come up now.

This week has been pretty good even with the heat! We need to buy umbrellas, mine broke. The sun is too hot here... they just came out with a new guideline that we can wear hats and sunglasses now so that's cool, haha,.

I know the Lord prepares the hearts of the people that are ready to hear the Gospel. I have seen time after time my loving Heavenly Father answer my prayers. I feel closer to Him and more converted to Him and His ways every week.

1 Nephi 10:23
A cool experience we had was a drunk guy came up and talked to us and was saying a lot of stupid things and was being very honest so we asked him what he needs help with and we testified that the Gospel of Jesus Christ can help him with his drinking problem and he got quiet and we could feel the presence of the Spirit when we testified and he wants us to help him with that.
