Transfers are coming up this Saturday for Jordan, and it is almost sure that Elder Stokes is leaving. He has been in City Bell for 9 months, and that is already way longer than missionaries are supposed to stay in one area. Jordan said that the idea of Elder Stokes leaving makes his hands sweat, but at the same time, he is excited for the oppurtunity to learn and grow. His second companion in Argentina will probably be a Latin missionary so he will be speaking Spanish 100% of the time. He says he can finally understand pretty much everything people are saying to him, but as his Spanish gets better, his English gets worse. He and Elder Stokes use a lot of Spanglish around the apartment.
The work is going well and has its ups and downs. We have more than enough people to teach, but less than enough people who are motivated enough to make changes. I know that if we keep on working as hard and as smart as we can, the Lord will do his part and lead us to the people who are truly prepared to hear the word."
