1st email from Argentina

Thanks Mom! 
It is so great down here. We live in such a 5 star hotel and they give us free food every morning.... ya right. This place is a lot different than I thought it would be! We live in a place called Pilar, about 30 mins west of Buenos Aires! It is so cool though. A bunch of white people speaking Spanish so weird. The Spanish is a little different but I love it! So fun! A lot different than a states mission for sure. Oh and I am allowed to get on the Internet to tell you I am okay. Ask me any questions you have! My companion is from Gilbert. He went to Red Mountain. And my district leader is also from Gilbert he went to our high school! The Lord is helping me so much. I am trying so hard. I need to rely on him more! I love you all so much. Oh and also my companion is super great. He wants to work really hard! What a blessing! I love you all
I'll email you a great email on my preparation day!

I don't know how we are going to be able to adjust to being a real missionary family,  In the past month we have been able to talk to Troy on the phone 4 times, because of Mothers day and all the traveling he has done.  This week we received emails from him on Saturday, Sunday, and Today. We also got an email and picture from his Mission President yesterday.  It has been super great!!!
