The other day we received a letter and a picture from the mission home. I can honestly say it's much different being on the other end of this experience. Jordan's letters are very positive and upbeat. He talks mostly about the work he's doing and who he's teaching. We are very proud of him and know he is doing the Lord's work.

Jordan flew out to Houston at around 8:25 yesterday morning. We got to talk to him while he was in the airport waiting to get on the plane. He sound so good! He was a little nervous about the flight since he had never been on a plane before. He sounded confident and very sure of himself. He knows what he's doing is right and it is important to him to serve the Lord.
The picture above was taken on the night of Wednesday October 5th 2010 in the mission home were he had some training and a wonderful dinner with his mission President, who is also in the picture. Just a soon as we have his new address, I'll post it here on the blog.

On October 5th Jordan will be flying out to his area of service. His letters have expressed a great deal of excitement and I'm sure he's ready to see what it's really like. I kind of wish I was him. I talked to the mission home yesterday to make sure his bike was taken care of and they are excited for this new batch of missionaries. It seems, based on the senior missionary I spoke to, there is a lot of exciting things happening in the Texas, Houston South Mission. Baptisms are strong and I have a great feeling that Jordan has a lot of wonderful things ahead of him.
One note: Just before he leaves for Texas, he will be singing in the priesthood session of General Conference. He was very excited about this and I'm sure this will be one of the first in a long line of memories throughout his mission. Pleas keep Jordan in your prayers. Help him find those searching for the restored Gospel through you thoughts, prayers and supportive letters. We love him very much and are very proud of him.
