Dear Family and Friends, The work is going great here in the Argentina. Our misión has high standards which helps us be very successful. Unfortunately we are only able to email family. I always appreciate hearing from you so here is my address you can write to or you can use the Dear Elder. Today we were not able to attend the temple like we thought but we set up a time to go next Tuesday. Im pretty excited, its always a great opportunity to attend the temple. Its starting to get into winter but its still pretty nice weather outside. This Saturday we have a baptism scheduled. Her name is Rocio and she is 9 years olds. Everything is going well with Elder Lloyd and myself. We try and talk with everyone we walk by. For the most part everyone is excepting but there are still others that totally ignore us which is common in missionary work. I am really starting to realize I´m in a totally different country. Everything is different, and I´m trying to soak it all in. I hear the 2 years goes by fast so I´m trying to live in the moment. I am so greatful for this oppotunity to serve and represent our Savior. I have heard about the blog and it sounds pretty nice. Thanks Beckie for your help with that, I´m sure your following all of Dads directions, hah. It was good to hear from mom and the rest of the family, everyone sounds great. I think I´m pretty good with everything here but if you can send the package with those few things that would be great. I look forward to hearing from you, and I will try to write back those other family members who emailed last week. Thanks for all your support, take care, Elder Brooks.
