Loma Grande.

Dear Mom, Hey! it's good to hear from you sounds like everyone is doing well. Mom thanks for the package! I received the other package that you sent this week and my companion and I love it, Elder Vita says thanks. I gave him one of the towels that you sent and we are going to be making some pb and j sandwiches this week so we are pretty excited. Things are going well in the apartment, we have a pretty nice apartment, clean, organized, and we have hot water. Elder Vita and i are getting along pretty well, he is a great companion. This week we had zone conference and we gave our workshop to our zone which went really well. We talked about finding new investigators by our own initiative and the Elders came up with some pretty nice idea, we are excited to see how that goes and see if we can find some new investigators. As for things here in Loma Grande things are going well with our investigators, we have a few that are progressing but have a few doubts and challenges. We are trying to help them as we pray and read with them. We are trying to focus and help our investigators have a true conversion in their lives and we know that as they continue to pray and read in the book of mormon they will be able to have a true conversion. Thanks mom for the pictures everyone looks great. Looks like Mackenzie went with a little change in her hair color tell her it looks nice. You look happy mom which I am glad to see. I am praying for you always I hope you have a great week. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and that as we continue with faith in his son Jesus Christ he will bless us. I love you mom! 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:
