Hi I'm Jordan McCombs

I am a missionary in Detroit Michigan. I love meeting new people. I'm a mormon.

About Me

Hey I am Jordan, I am 21 and a full time missionary. I like to stay active and stay busy. I'm a thrill seeker. I'm the favorite uncle. I love being a missionary and being able to study the gospel and share it with others.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up as a member of this church, I was not taught everything what I should have been taught. I have had some rough patches and made many stupid choices in my life. I stopped attending church, stopped praying, stopped everything God wants us to do and my life eventually hit as far as rock bottom as I ever want to go. I went back to church one day and immediatly recommitted myself to God so that I could live in happiness. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints because I have asked God if this was his kingdom on earth and he has confirmed to me that it is through the spirit and I cannot deny it. The Book of Mormon is true, and that means everything! Because it is true that means Josph Smith is a prophet of God, and all of his successors have and will continue to be prophets. Our Heavenly Father guides this church and he will not allow curruption in his kingdom. We are all at different stages of understanding the mysteries of God. But it is important to know how to seek truth. Truth is as things were as they are and as they will be. To gain spiritual knowledge it's simple, as James directs (James 1:5) if you lack wisdom ask God. In regards to knowing with a full heart the Book of Mormon is true it is simple. Read the Book of Mormon and ask God if it is true and you too will recieve a witness of these things.

How I live my faith

I started my church mission in Sep 2012, and I will be returing 2014. My mission has meant everything to me. The life experiences, the opportunity to serve others, the love I have for the people, all of it put together make this the most precious time that I've spent. I live my faith everyday by walking on the path God wants me on. My favorite book in the whole world really is the Book of Mormon. It has shaped and molded me. And because I know that it is the word of God I am able to reread it over and over and be more and more uplifted each time. I'm on my fourth time reading it right now. What Jesus did for all of us (his atonement), means the world to me. Through the power of repentance and forgiveness I have been able to go from feeling terrible to be able to experience true joy and happiness. It is through repentance that I have refined who I am and allowed God to guide my life. I pray every night and every morning it keeps me on track, and I believe that our relationship with our Heavenly Father is the key for success.
