Week 73

Another week that passed by. They are getting faster and faster each day. Not too much happened this week just the normal walking and teaching. We found a family that is super awesome and they have been going to church but no one told us that part of the family wasn't member so we went to visit them. They are a super nice family and they have a lot of desire to be baptized. Today we played soccer which was a lot of fun I am just realizing though how bad of shape I am in because I get super tired super fast now, but we had a lot of fun. A lot of missionaries that I know got transferred to my zone so it was nice seeing them again. Love and miss you all lots.

Week 72

Hows everyone doing? I am well. This conference was super awesome. They announced a temple here in my mission which is what we have been working on as a mission here. Then they also called my antierior mission presidente to be an area 70. Super crazy. This week was a good one. I actually was quite sick yesterday for the conference puke and such but I am feeling better now. We had service this week as well helping someone dig the foundation for their new house. And when I say digging the foundacion it was 1 to two feet deep. One of my favorite talks this conference was the one by Lynn Robbins when he talks about success as going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm. Well love and miss everyone lots. I think I might be able to send some pictures today.
Love Elder Black

Week 71

This was another busy week this week. Today we got together a couple of missionaries and played some soccer. I had division this week so I got to visit lastenia and be companions with Elder Blaylock for a day. That was fun they are preparing someone to be baptized this week. The next day we had interviews with presidente and those went well I got a bunch of mail from December with mail from March so I don´t know how the postal service works. We also had a service project where we helped put up a little house for a couple of members that are moving to another ward right next to ours. This week I also made a member super happy because he has long hair and I showed him pictures of my hair before the mission. Although his is a bit longer than mine was. Well my camera is still being weird and doesn't want to connect to the computer so I will have to see if I can figure that out but no pictures this week.

Week 70

Well this was a fast week we have been working really hard my companion and I. Today for P-day we wanted to visit a huge Jesus Christ statue but the bus never showed up so we just ended up wandering around for a while. I had some of the best pizza today it was the closest to American pizza that I have had in the mission. I can´t believe that this week I now have been in the mission for 16 months it is crazy how fast the time passes. My new area has been great all of the members here love us and give us lots of help. It has been a bit chilly here for a couple of days and I thought it was going to rain yesterday but it didn't. Well I have pictures but the computer won't read my camera so I will have to wait until next week.
Love and miss you lots

Week 69

This week was crazy but good. We had some very changing weather it would go from 100 degrees one day to 60 and raining the next. This Sunday there was a bunch of rain and we had to walk to church in it. We also had some service but luckily that was on the hot day not the rainy one. We cleaned up someones yard for them. This week we also had a zone conference and I got to see one of my companions who is going home this transfer. It is weird how fast the time goes by I really can´t believe it. Well other than that it was a pretty normal week. We visited a lot of people.
Love and miss everyone lots

Week 67

Wow what a week this has been super busy. I am training and on Monday and Tuesday I went and spent the day with Elder Craig in his area. Dispues tuvimos que go to Salta Tuesday night. All of the elders that came with me from the MTC are training as well. I got my companion in Salta he is called Elder Villalba he is from Paraguay and speaks Portuguese and Guarani which is the native language from Paraguay. He doesn't know super great Spanish so this has been fun but I am going to get him to teach me Portuguese. Well we got back late Wednesday and then went to our house. It go hard after that because our ward left that night to go to go the temple so there weren't many members to help us know the area. But really we were able to see the hand of the Lord in our area as we started working. A funny thing that did happen I had had church at 9 in every other area of mine so when we showed up to church on Sunday there was no one there and then we looked at the sign out front and it said the meeting started at 9:30 whoooopsss but I am doing well and having a great time.

Week 66

Wow what a week this has been I can´t believe I have made it to transfers again. I feel like my comp just got here. Just so everyone knows. I got transferred out of my area. But the crazy thing is that I get to train a new missionary and I get to white out an area (which means there were sisters there but now they are putting in 2 new elders that know nothing of the area). It is going to be quite the adventure. I am super sad to be leaving here though. There are so many great people here that I am going to miss. Sorry I don´t have much time but there are so many miracles here in Argentina.
Love you all lots.
