Tee Time in Argentina!!!!!

Here are a few new pictures and a little update. So here we have Elder Thompson and myself with one of our investigators Luis. Luis just had his birthday and we decided to put our baking skills to the test. It turned out very nice and delicious, hah! Luis is a family member of a member in our ward. We have just got to know him. Luis is not a member but he knows quite a bit about the church as most of his family are members. Also Presiden Benton invited us to lunch and some golf on P-Day, he was able to give us some lessons. It was fun. Love 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: Wikipedia.com
