Hi I'm Jordan

i grew up in Armadale, i have lived out of home since i was 15, i am preparing to serve a mission in japan, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i am 6 foot 4, so i stand out a lot, i enjoy jogging, swimming and, parkour. i have graduated year 12, and i am currently preparing to serve a mission in japan.

Why I am a Mormon

i was brought up in the church from a young age. However, when i was 15 i had to move out of home due to violence, and fend for myself. at this point in my life i truly felt helpless. As school was also not going very well for me, the only thing that remained steady and constant for me is the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. although the church couldn't "magic" my problems away, i was able to receive the help and support that i needed. my bishop at the time made sure that i always had a place to stay, so i didn't have to sleep on the streets. This trial also tested, and then strengthened my relationship with my heavenly father. Although looking back i see that i was able to learn so much from moving out. i learned how to budget, cook, and become self reliant. I was also able to better communicate with my father in heaven. He didnt take the trials that i was facing away, but he gave me comfort and help (mostly through other people). i never had to sleep on the streets and i never went too long without food. I know that the church of jesus christ of latter day saints is true, and is the only church that has the fullness of the gospel of jesus christ. i know that heavenly father hears and answers all of our prayers (not always when we want or in the way we want). i know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon through the power given to him from the lord. i have read the Book of Mormon, and i can testify that it is true. i know that we have a prophet on the earth today (Thomas s Monson) who receives revelation for everyone. i have a testimony of tithing and the blessings that it brings ( i kept putting it off and soon it became a large sum, but the day after i paid it i was able to get a job). i know that heavenly father gives us trials, that test us and can make us stronger. i say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I strive to do everything i know is required of me. i pay my tithing, i read my scriptures, i pray often, i attend church meetings, i attended seminary and i attend institute now, i keep the commandments and obey the word of wisdom. I have been involved blessing, passing, and preparing the sacrament since i was 12. I participate in all service opportunities that come up. I am preparing to serve a mission for 2 years in japan.
