Hi I'm Jordan

I grew up in California. I will be serving in the Billings, Montana Mission. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a lifelong member who has just found his footing in the gospel. I love anything to do with sports and if I had to pick a favorite it would definitely be American Football.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up as a member of the church I often caught myself just going through the motions. It wasn't until the end of my senior year of high school that I had a great spiritual awakening. Upon pondering what I was going to do after high school serving a mission was in the back of my mind. But as I prayed for guidance from the Lord and read my scriptures I knew what I had to do,"I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded,"(1 Nephi 3:7) . Mark 16:15 reads," Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Knowing that I wanted to follow the Lord's command I knew I had to prepare to serve the Lord. While preparing to serve him I read the scriptures and prayed, asking him to help me to understand and know that the words that I read were true. As I continued to read I felt warmth and comfort come over my body which I recognized as the Holy Ghost. I knew then that the words of both the Bible and The Book of Mormon were true. Since this experience my testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been strengthened and the blessings of the gospel have been poured unto my soul. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Growing up in the church I was involved in scouts and went to nearly all of the camp outs. As I got older my ward began to stress the necessity for home teaching which I began to get very involved in. As a home teacher I got a glimpse of what missionary life might be like and that helped persuade me to serve a mission. Shortly after deciding to serve a mission I began to go out with my wards full-time missionaries in preparation for my mission.
