"Yesterday, at our district meeting, the Spanish sisters...brought some hot chiles for everyone to try. It was so funny. The Spanish-speaking missionaries ate them without problems (they weren't very hot at all), but the English-speaking missionaries in our district almost died. Their faces turned red and they ran out for water! (I guess they haven't developed the same resistance that we have, since we eat chiles so much.....literally, a trial by fire). I have been able to build up quite a resistance to hot stuff. I actually had some Doritos the other day that I used to think were pretty hot (before my mission), and they tasted pretty bland."
"One great family, Porfidio and Lucy (and two little kids, Diego and Alma), we have been teaching for a couple weeks. They came to church and loved it. We taught them about the Word of Wisdom, and Lucy said, "Whatever you teach us, we are going to do, because we know it is from God." How much faith is that!"
