Today there are over 400,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Argentina. This has risen from small beginnings. In South America there are over 4.5 million members of the church. Recently Elder Ballard visited Argentina, where a plaque commemorating the dedication of South America to missionary work 90 years ago. When I served my mission in Argentina the Church had been there just over 50 years, and there were just over 40,000 members in Argentina. There were four missions, with the fifth being created during my mission. I served in the Buenos Aires North Mission.
For much of my mission I served in Don Torcuato and dreamed of there being a branch there. No there is not only a ward, but their own meeting house. Things change in a marvelous fashion.
