A Word of Wisdom

October 13, 2014

Hello friends and family!!

Another great week here in the promised land :) Week 4 of the transfer was good to Elder Calzada and I. We are getting along really great and we are working super hard. We again found some awesome people to teach this week and had quite a few of the people we are teaching come to church this week. We got a couple good rain storms this week but if its not raining, its really hot!!

We are teaching a family, whose name is Gutierrez and they are so sweet. The mom and dad are older and most of their kids already have kids and they all meet at their parents house 2 or 3 nights a week to listen to our lessons. 5 of them came to church this week and we are working super hard to get the whole family to church soon. Antonio, who was baptized last week, is doing great. He quit smoking the week before his baptism and now he said he cant even stand the smell of his friends smoking. I find myself throwing my fist into the air and yelling "YES!!!!" all the time. Small victories.

So about the subject title... Our ward is awesome, there really are some sweet people, but some of them bring up the darndest things during Priesthood!! Out of the three regular Sundays that I have been here, the revelation that was given to the Prophet Joseph Smith, the Word of Wisdom, gets brought up every single class! And there's nothing weird about that, but every time we talk about it, everyone gets into an argument about whether eating too much spicy food is breaking the word of wisdom. I think it is so funny!! Especially when the bretheren say things like "your wives already know how macho you are, just take it easy on the chilis when you eat!" hahaha. Viva Mexico.

Love you all!! Be happy :)
