Well, I´m finally here! And I´ve already fallen in love with this place! The members here are incredible and every day seems to be an adventure. My parents may have a tough time getting me to come home at this rate! Of
course it´s completely different than the states and some things will take some time to adjust to but I honestly love this place! My new companion is Elder Topham and he´s from around the Spanish Fork area, so I´m not completely lost down here. We are in a little area in the Buenos Aires province called Ramallo and cover two pueblos (small towns) with a branch of about 30 active members so there´s quite a bit of work to be done here. I got here just in time to attend the baptism of 5 children, 2 of which were convert baptisms, and we have a couple who are going to be married this Friday and baptized on Saturday, so a lot of exciting stuff ahead. A few fun cultural things about Argentina:-In argentina they refer to Americans as Yankees (the pronounce it Shunkees) and that´s all we´re ever called. And because their accent uses a lot of the sh sound my name down here is elder Shensen.
