Letter #80

*Answers for questions I asked about last weeks pictures and letter
Jilotepec is about an hour west from Tepeji I think.  No Elder Candelario was in Huichapan like 3 1/2 hours north of Tepeji on a bus. Interchanges were good, I did a baptismal interview, but one did not pass. He didn't have a testimony. It was a fish hatchery and restaurant ( the fishing picture from last week.) Just my zone went because the zone is huge.(To the temple last week.)

Eva y Janet. Now the Mom and the dad are hospitalized. We haven't been able to see them lately. Juan Miranda drank on Saturday, but he said he felt Horrible and never wants to feel that bad again. 

To teach about the temple we help them understand the "why" we need to go to the temple, then we do a puzzle that we made of the temple. We relate the puzzle with our life. We sometimes need a guide or people to help us to accomplish our goals. No matter how hard it can be if we keep on working we can accomplish it. We ask them what things they will do to start preparing themselves "piece by piece" for the temple and we invite them to talk with the bishop to put everything in order and share with him their goal of going to the temple. 

Favorite thing I read this week was an article in the Liahona about avoiding pornography. It made a reference to 1 Nephi 15:27. Lehi did not notice the filthiness because his mind was focused on other things (the tree of life). If we focus on Eternal life we won't have to worry about the filthiness of the world and we will have the strength to resist temptation. 

Funny story. This Sunday I made breakfast with some grilled ham and cheese sandwiches and ham and cheese quesadillas for my comp and I. I felt like I would be hungry still after, but didn't want to use more cheese. I looked in the fridge for something more to put in a tortilla and I saw some hershey kisses. I put them in a tortilla to make a grilled tortilla with chocolate. When I was done and about to eat it I thought for a bit. I then put the chocolate "quesadilla" in the middle of my companions quesadillas that I had made him. He happily ate his first bite of the quesadilla and went to get salsa. He ate all his first quesadilla with extra salsa, then he grabbed the second " ham and cheese quesadilla" which was really the chocolate one I put on his plate. He smothered it all with salsa and took a big big bite. He chewed for a bit and then froze. Then he yells "WHAT WAS THAT!!!" 
Needless to say I laughed my head off.

Love you,
Elder Finlinson
