Letter #42

Our mission leader made the ribs but the missionaries paid for the stuff. Elder Scott finishes in 3 months, Elder Candelario in January I think.
I think I will be able to Skype. (On Mother's Day) I just don't know who has the stuff for it. In my area the people are more humble and there aren't many members. I will think of who. We will be participating in the temple rededication in September. I don't know what we will do, but we will be there.

So this week started out stellar again. On Monday we visited a member who fed us chicken feet... That night I was throwing up until about 4 in the morning and we couldn't work on Tuesday for that. The investigators are doing alright. The Cano Piedras family are progressing. The son is doing better and reads the Book of Mormon and prays. The girl who doesn't believe in God read the Book of Mormon about King Lamoni. She now doesn't say that there can't be a God. She told us we need to help her grow her faith so that she can believe in God. Justino, Rosa, and Shari are doing better too. They are praying to know when they can get divorced and married so that they can get baptized. We are trying to help them in the process, but there isn't much we can do. The Chavez Montoya family went to the visitors center with us on Saturday and felt the spirit.

Saturday. We went to the visitors center. Rosa, shari, and the Chavez Montoya family went with us. We had a combi for the investigators and sister missionaries. We went in a Ford Explorer with the other elders and some recent converts and our mission leader. We enjoyed everything there and the investigators did too. Then on our way back... we were in the capital city (basically like Washington D.C. of Mexico) and a guy in a car opened his door and hit our SUV. We pulled over. Here in Mexico they don't exchange insurance. They debate who pays and then call police if they don't settle it. The police showed up an hour and a half later. Next thing you know it was 10 at night and we were in Mexico City (other mission). Then they went to court. We waited outside the court for 3 hours and then were able to come back home at 2 in the morning. It was super crazy being out in the capital. Sunday we were super tired.

Lately I have read the Book of Mormon a lot and have studied about the Holy Ghost in the Conversion. I would like you to read Mosiah 5:2 and see what happened after the people felt the spirit. We need to feel the spirit in our lives at all times. It will give us divine guidance. 

Love you,
Elder Finlinson
