When they got to Mexico, they had to walk the difficult journey to Mexico City. From there, he traveled to the Sierra Gorda Mountains. Later,he went to San Diego to found a mission. On the way, his legs got injured. Unexpectedly, he still wanted to go to Monterey Bay to found another mission. After that, he founded nine missions in all. He had also learned the indian language. It was a sad day when he died.
