August 26, 2013 On his way to Brazil

Family and friends,

We were able to speak with Jordan Monday during his stop over on the way to Belo.  He left Monday morning from Pocatello to SLC to Minneapolis to Detroit to São Paulo to Belo Horizonte arriving some time Tuesday afternoon. I won't complain about my one stopover any more. He was in great spirits and although he loved his time in Pocatello, was excited to get to his mission. He had a moment of pride (righteous) when he told us how he and Elder Vigill came into a newly opened area to begin building the teaching pool - during just the last week they taught 33 discussions.  Elder Vigill was an excellent trainer and hard worker, we know that training will benefit Jordan throughout his mission.

There were about eight missionaries traveling down to Brazil by the time he arrived in Detroit and he was reunited with his MTC companion there!

His mission has a facebook page where several pictures were posted of the new arrivals.  I have attached a couple, but if you are interested, the facebook page is: 

We are not sure when we will hear from him next but we wanted to give you a short update.

Thank you for your love and prayers.
