The pix of the tortillas look good.  I actually made tortillas on my own for the first time yesterday.  It's kind of hard as a missionary, because I don't have too much time to make them, because even though they do tast better homemade I just don't have the time.  However, I'm going to have to teach you how to eat with them.  You don't eat them like a taco.  just put the rice and beans and meat (or whatever  your eating on the plate.  Then take a tortilla and tear a piece off big enough to scoop up the food and eat it.  the Idea is to not use silverware.
[Picture eating taco made with homemade tortilla that we sent Jeff.  We made the tortillas with the tortilla maker that Jeff sent the family]
This last week I went on exchanges with our district leader..  It's been a lot of fun this transfer, because he as become our new district leader, and he is the only native missionary.  There are other natives, but the all speak english best.  So we've had district meetings all in spanish, and on exchanges I learned a lot from having to only speak spanish.  It was a lot of fun also, because Elder Chupin had served in Raeford before, so he showed me several new places to knock, and he intoduced me to a bunch of people he knew.
We're also teaching [investigator] still, who is beginning to progress finally.  We almost got him to come to church.  They fixed their car on saturday so that they could come to church (I'm sure coming to church wasn't the only reason, but either way it made it easier for them to come).  And they put a new battery and alternator in, but the put a used battery in, and it was dead when they tried to leave in the morning, so they didn't come.  But maybe next week.
This week we got to eat with a bunch or members, which is extremely rare.  We ate a lot of good food, and also have a couple of potential referrals (one that we will teach tonight)!
