Elder's Love Mail From Home !!!!!!!

Dear Family, Hey! It is great to hear from you! Sounds like everyone is doing well I'm glad to hear. It sounds like you have not received my package that I sent, keep looking for it and let me know when you receive it. I hope it gets there soon. Everything is going well here in Argentina. Today is our preparation day, this morning Elder Garcia and I went to the chapel to play some soccer and ate some lunch with our zone leaders Elder Pinzón and Elder Evans. We had a good week here in Billinghurst. We were able to find and teach some new investigators and bring them to church! We had seven investigators in our sacrament meeting it was truly a blessing. We have been able to find two families who are looking for the help of their heavenly father. These families are not married but we are planning to talk to them this week and we hope they will understand the importance. We have had some very spiritual lessons with them and we look forward to continue to bring the spirit into their homes and into their lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ. We were not able to teach Antonella this past week due to their schedule but they were able to attend church which was very nice. Also this week Elder Garcia and I had the opportunity to help clean the chapel again. This week we had a total of four which is including Elder Garcia and myself. We are grateful the opportunity we have to serve in this new branch here in Billinghurst it truly is a blessing and there are always opportunities to help and serve those in our branch. This past week I received a few nice letters, and a nice little package from the young men and young women from the Palo Verde Ward which was very nice! I really appreciate all of your love and support, you are all in my prayers. This transfer we have a focus of increasing the spirituality. There are many things we can and should be doing to increase the spirit in our daily lives. I invite each any everyone of you to look for these opportunities this week. I know our Heavenly Father is willing to bless us as we continue to obey His commandments and live the gospel of His son Jesus Christ. Have a great week, I look forward to hearing from you soon. Con amor, Elder Brooks.

Flag of Argentina

Flag of Argentina
The national flag of Argentina dates from 1812. The full flag featuring the sun is called the Official Ceremonial Flag (Spanish: Bandera Oficial de Ceremonia). The Official Ceremony Flag is the civil, state and war flag and ensign. The sun, called the Sun of May, is a replica of an engraving on the first Argentine coin, approved in 1813, whose value was eight escudos (one Spanish dollar). It has 16 straight and 16 waved sunbeams. According to tradition, during the Argentine War of Independence General Manuel Belgrano was commanding a battle near Rosario. He noticed that both the Crown's forces and the independence forces were using the same colors (Spain's yellow and red). After realizing this, Belgrano created a new flag using the colors that were used by the Criollos during the May Revolution in 1810. The flag was hoisted for the first time in Buenos Aires atop the Saint Nicholas of Bari Church on August 23, 1812. - Ref:
