We left the house at 5:30 this morning to drive out to Chivilcoy. It takes a little over two hours to get there from our home. It is a beautiful town out in the country (el campo). The sidewalks are about three times the width of normal sidewalks and the streets are clean. We didn’t see any graffiti. The buildings were interesting and really, there were so many photos that were begging to be taken. However, we didn’t have time today. We found the chapel and these great missionaries waiting for our arrival. We met with Elder Mather, Elder Kupihea, Elder Flores, Elder Durham, Elder Paxman, Elder Hernandez, Elder Bennett, Elder Alvial, Elder Darrington, Elder Quist, Elder Jackson, Elder Hamilton, Elder Fish, Elder D. Gonzalez, Elder Cooper and Elder San Francisco.
So, we finished our first week in the mission field having met and talked with 56 missionaries in three zones, the 5 office elders and 3 senior couple missionaries. It has been a full and wonderful week.
