Hi I'm Jordon

I'm nineteen years old my mission papers are in, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a graduate from high school continuing to prepare for my mission and striving to walk on the straight an narrow path to allow me to be ready for those who are ready to hear the good news of Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because no words can describe the joy that can come through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am Mormon because I know that the holy scriptures were translated by a prophet of God and were prepared for the children of God; to know who we are and to know how to return to our father in heaven. I know that only true joy can come through the service of our fellow brothers and sisters which allows us to feel the pure love of Christ. I absolutely know that this church is true and I hope to share it any way possible.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others, I recently when to Honduras on a humanitarian project called similes for Central America; In which we traveled to Honduras to help to prospective missionaries in the area be medically ready for their missions. We cut their hair; tested their blood to find their blood type; gave them physicals so we could see if they were healthy to serve; and gave all of them the best dental treatment we could possibly give them in one full day of service. This opened my eyes to what we did for the world in which through our service thousands if not millions of people around the world will be able to be impacted by the gospel of Christ. I am a ward missionary in my singles ward and sorrow fills my soul as I and my fellow brethren seek for those who have fallen away from the church. I strive to follow the spirit as I seek to visit those that we have missed so much. I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity, because as I continue to prepare for my mission; I see the love that comes through seeking to share the message of Christ.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Jordon
We do baptisms for the dead in order for those that have passed on to be able to receive the same blessings that we on earth can receive. Those that have passed on are waiting in spirit prison or paradise those that are in prison haven't received the fullness of the gospel. Through our baptisms on earth we allow those in spirit prison to choose whether or not they want to accept the blessings we are allowing them to receive. As Joesph Smith stated, "They without us cannot be made perfect, and we without out are dead cannot be made perfect." We don't just do baptisms for the dead, because we want them to join our church, we do them so they can be perfected as the Lord would see it fit. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Jordon
Grace is a very important doctrine in our church, we believe that it is through grace that we can become perfect as Christ. Christ became perfect grace by grace and it is through the grace that he gives us that we can be made perfect. We believe that even through all the repentance that we go through it is only by the grace of God that we can truly be saved. Show more Show less

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Jordon
The purpose of the welfare services of the church is to care for the poor and the needy as Christ did when he was here upon the earth. We seek to help those that are in need to enable them to live a life that the Lord would have them live. Through the welfare services we also give others the opportunity to serve and bless those that live in their community. We just want to bring happiness and joy to all those that can receive it, even if they don't accept our gospel. Christ said to, "Follow me." We try to emulate Christ any way we can through helping his children here on the earth. Show more Show less
