Dear Family, Hey its great to hear from you sounds like everyone is doing great. Everything is going well here in Argentina and the weather is staying pretty cool. This past week went well and we have a few investigators that we are working with. This past week I was able to study and learn a lot about the importance of prayer. Teaching our investigators and showing our investigators how to pray is very important. Although prayer is a common princilple there is always something more to learn and to better. I learned how thorugh prayer not only ourselves but also the investigators can receive revelation, their answers, guidance, and blessings from our Heavenly Father. This past week we focused many of our lessons on the importance of prayer, why and how. At the end of our lessons we had the opportunity not to just pray with our investigators but to also kneel with our investigators in their houses, in their front yards, or even in front of their house and we were able to communicate with our Heavenly Father. It was a testimony to me to see the faith of many of our investigators as the knelt and prayed with us, and with the majority of our investigators giving the closing prayer. I know that our Heavenly Father commands us to pray to him and I know he blesses us when we are obedient and obey his commandments. This past week he had four investigators in church and I believe they were there because they received their answers to their prayers or they wanted to go to church to receive their answer. Elder Gonzalez and myself look forward to continue to put this in practice and we continue to learn more about the importance and power of prayer. We have many be able to find many investigators that are interested in our message but many have challenges to overcome. I am grateful for the principle of prayer and the role that it has played in my life, I know that we truly can receive the Lords help as we pray with faith. So sounds like everyone is doing well and getting ready for Justins wedding, very nice I am happy for him. There is an Elder Rodriguez here in our mission who is from San Antonio, Texas and he mentioned that he knew Justin and if I am right he might have lived in the Rodriguez's house because they have missionaries that live there. I am glad to hear that everyone is doing great. I am praying for you. I appreciate your love and support have a great week. Con amor, Elder Brooks. Mom I will be looking for the packages thanks I love you also tell aunt Diane and the Cope Family thanks I love them!

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:
