Jordan has been in Honduras for 2 whole months now. (well almost, on Wed. it will be exactly 2 months) But really whose counting? :) He has been doing so many great things since he has been there. He is loving and taking advantage of every moment. I LIVE for Mondays when his weekly email arrives. He has told us so many great stories of things that he has done since he has been there. He is really falling in love with the children. He said in a recent letter that he is really beginning to understand why Christ loves the little ones so much. The children always have a smile for the missionaries and always make him feel better after a hard day. He is serving in a little fishing village called Guapinol. There is no where in Guapinol for he and his companion to live because it is such a poor area. He says literally every house is made of sticks with dirt floors. He and his comp. live about 45 min. away in a town called Monjaras. They ride the bus each day to Guapinol and serve the people there. One of his absolute favorite things is that he is teaching seminary! He said his comp. knows Spanish better. (He is from El Salvador) But Jordan knows the Old Testament better so he teaches. He has truly been blessed with the gift of tongues to be able to teach a seminary class 4 days after he arrived in Honduras. His first companion Elder Guillen went home yesterday so he now has a new comp. He was hoping to be able to keep serving in Guapinol. I guess we will find out on Monday where he is and who he is with. The Lord has truly blessed me with a sense of peace and joy for Jordan. How else would a mother be able to live 2 years without seeing her child? How else would I be able to sleep at night with Jordan living in the jungle? :)
It is a great blessing to have a son serving a mission.
