Letter #73

Lots of missionaries in the zone are training (more than half), that was the biggest difference. Our investigators are doing well, but they are stuck right now because they haven't received an answer that the Book of Mormon is true. Almost all of our investigators are stuck there. They think baptism is good, but there is something that holds them back and its because they haven't received that little push from God. Karen, her son Francisco, and Nancy have baptismal dates for December 20. Please be praying for them.

The concert was a style of music that I dont like much its called "la banda". I haven't seen any nativities. The majority haven't done much for Christmas yet. Our month is interchanges almost every week (Fridays), a district meeting every week ( Wednesdays) except the week we have our zone meeting (the first Thursday). I got the shells from an investigator that buys them from a different state and then they make them little tacos.(The shells from the picture he sent last week.)

We don't do almost anything with the youth because they are in school on Mondays. If you could write him from time to time that would be cool. ( A former companion of his.)

This week was weird. It was average. Nothing huge, nothing bad. It was normal. We are working hard to make our lessons better. So far its working because almost all our investigators came to church this week. The only problem is that they don't have an answer from God that this is the truth. They believe its good, but they don't know with a certainty that its the only way to God. 

* I asked him if he laughed this week. This was his response, "My comp and I always laugh. It was also funny because the new sister missionary in our ward left her camera in the mission offices and a different missionary told us to give it to her. We had it for a few days and we took some fun pictures and videos with her camera before we gave it to her on Saturday." 

Things that I have learned this week. Our agency is essential. Many times we as missionaries don't contact because we wait to feel from God that we are to contact someone. But as it says in Preach my Gospel as we understand the Atonement more our desire to share the gospel grows. "If you have desires to serve God you are called to the work" D&C 4. Our desire is a choice we make. We choose if we contact someone, if we take a good decision or bad. We are here on earth to prove to God that our desires will be just and we will choose the good even without him telling us everything we must do. "He who is compelled in all things is an unwise and slothful servant and receives no reward." D&C 58:26 

My invitation is that you can Choose The Right when a choice is placed before you. 2 Nephi 2:27

Love you,
Elder Finlinson
