Hi I'm Jordan

I am from Oakley, a small town in southern Idaho. I am currently serving my mission in the Georgia Atlanta mission.

About Me

I am a missionary serving the people in the Atlanta area of Georgia. I love my mission and the people here that I get the chance to talk to. I know that serving a mission is where I am supposed to be in my life even though I have to give up so much! I would not consider it a sacrifice, it is for sure a blessing!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that is very strong in the church. I have seen the happiness that comes from the gospel in my grandparents, my parents, and many other family members. That is why I try to be better every day, I want the happiness that they have and I know that it can come through things like keeping the commandments, reading the scriptures, and doing the things that the prophet teaches.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others every chance I get. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for us! I want to share that truth that I have with others so that they can feel that joy that can come from living the gospel. I love to tell people about the church and all of its great people! Even though they and all of us are no where near perfect we can all be forgiven of our sins through Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church that has been restored through a prophet, and we have a prophet on the earth today. Everyone needs to hear this message! And I want to share it.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Jordan
We preform proxy baptism in the temples for deceased people who never had the opportunity to be baptized while they were on earth. An important thing to recognize is that often these proxy baptisms are for our ancestors who came before us. Because baptism is done by full immersion the deceased cannot do this ordinance (or sacred act) because their sprits have been separated from their physical bodies. We want people who have never had the chance to be baptized to have that work done for them so they can receive all of the blessings that come from a proper baptism. Show more Show less
