The Bus Life

Big, fast update...

Last week we finished strong. Finished in the sense of elder Apolinarios training. we were able to have a whole lot of fun together for 3 months. 
Finished also in the sense of, even though I only have 1 more month in the mission, I have been sent to another, final area. 
Sunday afternoon President Chaparro called and gave me the news that I would be headed to Concepcion, Tucumán. So, sunday night we put on the hiking shoes and went to say bye to all of the people that have helped and impacted me in these last 4 months. The saddest, (pics from last week) was saying bye to my good friend Javier. We have worked hard to activate and excite javier to put some goals and reach them, It was hard for the both of us to see me go earlier than we were expecting. He gave us dinner, and I gave him the tie off of my neck.
Monday I enjoyed an 8 hour bus ride to my new area, and now we are workin hard
I am with Elder Mendez. He is from Quito, Ecuador. He started the mission 1 transfer after I did, and we both started in the same zone, so we´ve kind of known eachother. 
This week we have traveled a LOT! our zone is a spacious zone full of lots of bus rides. On wednesday, we did splits and I was honored to work with elder Figueredo. He is from brazil and is about to complete 1 year in the mission. Then on friday, we had some last second baptismal interviews, so I was able to work with a good buddy, Elder Brundage. then we had a slumber party in our apt. 
Our apartment is actually really really nice! So thats a blessing. today we cleaned it up even more, its nice to be able to come home from a hard day of work and not be grossed out by your house. Its nice to feel at home!! 

Sorry, but my camera broke (idk how) and im not too worried about finding a new one. My comp takes lots of pics, so ill be sure to send them your way once I get them from him!

Love you guys! 
See you next week!

Extra Innings

Post Script from Mom -
Since Jordan would never tell you himself... he was called as zone leader for his final transfer.  This is his e-mail to me.  "changes today. they took me out of my area, i wasn`t expecting that. and they sent me to tucuman. Also, they put me as a zone leader, wasn`t expecting that even more than the first........ but what evs."

I actually have time this week, I just don´t know what to write...
This week we had to travel, a lot! 
My comp had to go to Salta to do some paperwork in order to be legal here in Argentina, then we had a conference on the other side of salta. For those who don´t know, slata is kindof like a U, and we had to be in the two tips, and we live in the middle...

other than that, we keep trying to find people to teach, and more importantly, trying to help the branch get excited to help us, and to become better in all aspects, like starting on time, providing a welcoming invironment for the investigators, showing up and preparing when they have to give talks, ect....

I now have less than 50 days in the mission.. Its kinda wierd, but it still hasn´t kicked in...

Hey guys, Its me. Your favorite emailer ever... Not. sorry I suck but ive been passing every church movie known to man to another missionary for the past hour and I don`t have too much more time. 
This was a good week. We had a conference with President Chaparro! Other than that, we´ve been trying to work hard and find new peeps to take to church. This week Elder Wood goes home, so hopefully that won`t put me too trunky! 

I bet Javier an asado that I could do a cooler trick than him with the trompo, so today we enjoyed that.. enjoy the pics

I really don´t have any time. we went hiking in the morning, so I´m sure you guys can just imagine how my day has gone..
Best news of the week is that we had a kid contact us a while back because he wants to learn english, and he is progressing really well! His name is Luis. 

I would be sorry for the super lame email, but you guys are just in it for the pictures anyways...
