New Opportunities for Growth!!!!!!!
Dear Family, Hey it is great to hear from everyone sounds like everyone is doing great! Everything is going great here in Argentina. Today we just started a new transfer and there were quite a few changes made. My companion Elder Baldomero has been transfered to another area. Elder Baldomero was just starting to feel better but when we received the call saturday night that he was getting transfered he started not feeling to well, a little sad and disappointed becasue he did not want to leave. We were able to get along very well in the short time we were together and it was a little tough on both of us when we found out he was getting transfered already. I explained and we talked about how the mission or life is just like sports. You never now when it is your last game, you need to give it all you got and leave everything you got on the field each game, each day. We had a great transfer and we worked very hard and we are very grateful for what we were able to accomplish. It was a good conversation and it was also interestesing in our transfer meeting as we listened to President Bentons message as he touched on a similar topic. So now we have begun a new transfer, I am still in Las Heras and serving as district leader, and I will also be training this transfer! I am not sure who my companion is, right now I am on divisions with Elder Zapata from Panama who will also be training this transfer. Tomorrow we will report to the mission offices and meet our new companions. Also they placed new elders in our district, Elder Chatwin and Elder Rodriguez who will be serving in Lobos. The work is going well here in Las Heras. We have been working a lot with the members, converts, less active members, and investigators, trying to help all strenghten their faith in Jesus Christ. Our recent convert Joana is doing great and she is loving early morning seminary as she has not missed a day. We are excited as I am sure you are for this weekend and the opportunity to hear from our prophet, President Thomas S. Monson and from all of apostles and many leaders of the church. It is a blessing to hear and receive guidance from our Heavenly Father as he speaks through his disciples. I invite you to take advantage of this opportuinty and attend as many sessions as you can. I am grateful for all of your love and support and look forward to hearing from you soon. Con amor, Elder Brooks.
