President del Castilla and his wife were released from their mission in July. This the last photo of Jordan with them and the last photo I will be publishing in this blog. Jordan will be returning home at the end of July. Jordan has expressed in his most recent emails that it will be very hard to leave the people and the country of Argentina. He has made many friends and had many wonderful experiences that will last him a lifetime. The best way I know to end this blog would be to have Jordan write something. So when he gets home I will have him do that. Stay tuned.
In June Jordan and Elder Moore found out they were both getting new companions. They would each be training a new Elder. As happens sometimes with the South American countries, the American Elders were delayed because of Visas, but the Elders from South America and Mexico would be coming as scheduled. Jordan's new companion is Elder Ruiz from Mexico. He is only 18 and received permission to start his mission early.
In May Elder Posadas was transferred and Jordan's new companion was his neighbor Elder Moore, from South Carolina. They get along great and are having much success in teaching and serving the people of Corrientes. They are also having some fun times. One of which is making slingshots with one of the members. The super powerful kind. Well, one day Jordan and Elder Moore were in their apartment and one of them, (any quesses as to who?), says, "Check this out." and he shot the plastic bottle which threw it out of the way and then it keep right on going and took out the window in the oven. Fortunately, it was not the good oven, they have two. The good oven is attached to the propane tank!!!! What were they thinking---"Well, I guess we know its powerful." quote, Elder Moore.
