We just received a phone call from Hermana Nola Peterson, the wife of Kyle’s mission president. After 36 hours of planes, airports and delays, Kyle is in Argentina. Upon arriving at 11:00pm ART (Argentina Time) Kyle and his fellow travelers got to sleep in after arriving at the mission home. They spent Wednesday and Thursday (Nov 30th and Dec 1st) in training classes and a bit of time in the evenings tracting in Neuquén. Hermana Peterson said that Kyle and his companion were able tract into a lesson which they taught. I am not sure how much of a role Kyle played in that discussion but I am sure it was an eye opener to participate in a real conversation at real speaking speed with native Argentines. Thursday night they caught a bus and are now traveling for about 9 hours to their town of Trevelin. Trevelin is a beautiful small town nestled up to the Andes south of Beriloche. His companion is an Elder Clark from Washington state.
Kyle’s P-Day and thus, day he will read and send emails is the normal P-Day on Mondays. We can’t wait to hear from him and will post any information as it comes. (jh)
