Hi I'm Jordan

I was born in England. Raised in Scotland. I'm a brother, a son, and a grandson. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am going on a mission to Canada very soon, after which i plan to go to university, although i am not sure as of yet what i want to study, i hope my mission my help me make up my mind. i love sport and play badminton, football (soccer) and any other sport i get the chance to have a go at. i have participated in a number of 10k runs and used to attend kuk sool. I really like the lord of the rings and i have read a number of the other compilations from the Tolkien world I also enjoy harry potter but i would pick Gandalf over Dumbledoor any day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the book of Mormon is the word of god and because this is true I also know that Joseph smith was a prophet of god and that this is the true church. The latter day prophets have always guided me to do the right thing and without the church i do not know where i would be. I have a strong testimony of the god head and that the holy ghost, Jesus Christ and our father in heaven are separate beings who are one in purpose and mind. I know that Christ sacrificed himself for us and that through his atonement if we truly love him and keep his commandments then we can be saved and return back to our glorified father in heaven who through his unimaginable love gave his only begotten for us. I have a great testimony of the eternal family and its centrality to the gospel and that we can all be together for eternity through the sacred ordinances of the temple. I know that god watches over us through our trails and tribulations and blesses us if only we keep our faith him. I know that he answers prayers I know this because I am going on a mission and would not be if he had not answered through the great comforter which is the holy ghost. I know that Christ lives and is our loving brother. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I was brought up in the church and I am third generation on my mothers side. I attend church weekly and teach the Sunday school lesson which is because my current call is Sunday school teacher. My first call was deacons quorum president which is a group within the Aaronic priesthood of boys 12 and 13. Then I was called as teachers quorum president when I turned 14 which encompasses boys from 14 to 15. When I turned 16 I was then call as assistant to the priest quorum president (who is the branch president or bishop) and the priest quorum is form 16 to until you get the Melchizedek priesthood at eighteen or anytime after that. During my time as a priest I would normally teach the young-mens lessons in preparation for my mission, I would also lead and help organize the youth activity's every week. I started home teaching when I was twelve (although you normally start when your fourteen) and i have always done my best to get i 100 percent record every month although it can be difficult at times. I am also currently called as a branch missionary and so I go out and help teach with the full time missionaries when I can and occasionally go tracting. we have a chapel cleaning rota which i attend and i also mow the church lawns with my dad.
