Hi I'm Jordan

I'm a skater, a free-runner, a wrestler and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life has always been a battle for me even at a young age, as a youth my family moved around alot this made it hard for us to settle down and make good friends. for a long time i felt like a loner but when the gospel became part of my life, I always have a reason to smile. Life is to be enjoyed not just endured. I love the out doors and I love skateboarding, I believe that two people can do anything as long as one is willing and the other is the lord. I find alot of enjoyment when I'm tearing up the streets on my skateboard I skate to live and live to skate. Also I do a fun recreational sport called par-kour or free running this is basically urban ninja and it is way fun! I became captivated with it when a brother in law showed it to me. i also enjoy wrestling and MMA.

Why I am a Mormon

This is the best choice i have ever made, this gospel and church has brought me so much happiness and it can for you too. God lives he is real and wants you and I to know who he is and what he is all about, this is what the gospel is. that we can have happiness and joy by knowing, doing, and becomeing what Heavenly Father wants us to do and become. this is what brings us true happiness. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by dedicating my life to the Lord currently i am a missionary in las vegas and loving every minute of it! Every day i go out and teach people about Jesus and why he loves them and how they can recognize that love. I share a Book of Mormon with everyone as well I know that God lives and loves everyone that is why He restored this church! at the end of each day of hard work I hit my pillow and say in my heart that I get to do this again tomarrow. I know that Heavenly Father is pleased with this decision. 

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Jordan
Following Jesus Christ is central to everything we do as members of the church. when Jesus was on the earth in his mortal ministry he realized the importance of being baptized but he also knew it couldnt be done by just anyone. could you imagine that you want to be baptized would you go to a random person on the street and say hey will you baptize me? no you would pick someone religious for one but also someone special. Jesus knew of just the person in fact at that time the only person his name was John the Baptist and he was sent before Jesus was born to prepare people for Jesus. The scriptues say that he walked from Galilee to the river Jordan which on a map is 70 miles it was that important to Jesus Christ the son of the living God to walk the whole way to him to be baptized. why? Because john the baptist had priesthood authority because he was selected by the Lord. unfortunately for most people they think its ok to be baptized by anyone who was not selected , called or given priesthood authority by the Lord. in the last chapter of mark, Jesus told his apostles go to all the ends of the earth and preach my gospel and whoso Believeth and is baptized shall be saved. if we truely want to follow Jesus Christ we need to do it his way.  Show more Show less
