13 Wherefore, I call upon the aweak things of the world, those who are bunlearned and despised, to thresh the cnations by the power of my dSpirit;
14 And their arm shall be my arm, and I will be their ashield and their buckler; and I will gird up their loins, and they shall fight manfully for me; and their benemies shall be under their feet; and I will let cfall the dsword in their behalf, and by the efire of mine indignation will I preserve them.
15 And the apoor and the bmeek shall have the gospel preached unto them, and they shall be clooking forth for the time of my coming, for it is dnigh at hand—

Another Week in the Life of ME!
Elder Black and Elder Garrett (look at the phone cord! :) )
Package from home!
McKenna drew this awesome picture...
I'm not going to lie, I don't really remember what I did this week, I've been pretty out of it lately...
To answer questions: Oh.. wait, nobody asked me any...
So this week, on Wednesday we did divisions. I went to Santo Domingo with Elder Perez (Mexican, has 3 months in the mission) and we taught some really weird people... one started asking us... inappropriate questions about the gospel, and another (a drunk) was trying to explain to us how according to the Bible, it's ok to drink wine... it was a very interesting day. Then, the following morning, we went to Heredia to help with a service project. We loaded more than 2,000 milk cartons into a truck (that took 3 processes, from the church to outside, from outside to next to the truck, and next to the truck to in the truck) My arms got so sore, and cut up (one of the elders was throwing the boxes with the cartons to/at me) and so I was really sore the next couple of days. Then on Thursday I came back and worked with Elder Garrett like normal. Yep... that's about it, except from Thursday, I don't remember a thing. I was so tired and crazy. And yeah, that's it.
Oh, actually we did have one cool experience. We taught a lesson to Flavio (Argentine, really good investigator) and we invited him to baptism. He said, "Of course! But I will have to go to church more and read more of the Book of Mormon." And we just sat there in shock. Why? For those of you that don't know, that is a response that we never hear. No one ever says that they have to read more, they normally just try to find an excuse not to do anything, so it was really cool, we will be working a lot with him.
Well, that was my week, tune in next week for more on the "Mission of Elder Black" Goodbye!
