Welcome to Argentina (After a 23 hour flight schedule!)

Elder Denton woke up at 5am yesterday to get ready to head for the airport with 400 other Sisters & Elders. As their bus pulled out of the MTC there was a shout for joy to get away from their 2 months of language and spiritual training. While there was always a great spirit about the MTC, a change of scenery was most welcome. Our family received a call from Elder Denton from the SLC airport. We had him on speaker phone and every family member got up by 7:45am to join in the conversation. It was a lot of fun to listen to Cody and Kyle speak spanish to each other. Chazz listened intently from the couch wrapped up in his sleeping bag and followed the whole conversation without any trouble. Fortunately, he still remembers how to speak English, so I was able to understand him some of the time. Nothing earth shattering came from the conversation...it was just a nice treat to hear his voice because I didn't think we'd be able to talk to him until Christmas after he first went into the MTC.
They flew to Los Angeles and there he had a 4 hour layover where he called a few other people. As of this morning at 8:15 am, I have heard nothing yet about his arrival...but hope to hear something from his Mission President via email.
