Week 85: Where did January go?

Our District
Mom, that is pretty funny that that woman you met from Mexico freaked out when she found out that I am in Sinaloa. Honestly, the parts of Sinaloa that I have been in have been very safe places. I have never seen or heard of anything crazy that has happened here. The only crazy thing was when they captured El Chapo who happened to be living in our area :). But everything is super calm, even more here in Guasave. 

Well transfers came and Elder Sosa and I stayed the same. Nothing too exciting. 
And this last week everyone in my district baptized except for us. We had a total of 7 baptisms last week. And on thursday I had to interview 6 people so it was a pretty great day. It was such and awesome experience to see these people come unto Christ. Also one of the people that I interviewed asked me to baptize him, so I actually "got wet" this week also. 
It was also the last week for one of the sisters in my district, so we all bought her a cake for our district meeting. It was also super funny because they spelled "misión" wrong. But we are going to miss hermana muñoz. 

This week was also super hard for me because it is just hard not to get discouraged when it seems like all the other missionaries have progressing investigators and we can't seem to find anyone.  But with prayer and the help of a fast, I have been able to feel strength from the Lord. I Also was able to receive much strength from the Sacrament. I love this ordinance and I now understand the importance of it and the power that it has in my own life. 
I hope that this next transfer that we will be able to work hard and receive the joy that comes from serving the Lord. I cannot believe that I only have 3 transfers left. Time is going by so fast. It is so hard to believe everything that is happening. 

Love you so much. 
Elder Snyder
