SO. Today it was time to say goodbye to another great friend, Greg. Sunday he gave a fantastic talk and in just a couple of days he is leaving for his mission. I can't believe it...time seriously flew. Anyways, so its his turn for a blog post.
Me and Greg met a few years ago when he asked me to be his dance partner for the dance festival! haha That was SO much fun. Seems like so long ago. Now here we are at the edge of our seats, leaning into our futures, and he is jumping off! Ready for the MTC and ready to serve in Mexico.
Well Greg, we have had a lot of fun over the years with dance festival, youth dances, youth conference, FHE, YSA dances, and whatnot. Then you got to go off to BYU, which I was so proud of, AND got to meet the girl of your dreams! (: So as you get ready to head off, don't be nervous, just think about everyone who is standing behind you just cheering you on. YOU are going to be so great out there! I have no doubt in my mind about that. Your testimony has always been so strong and you are so strong in this gospel. I hope you pick up the language quickly, that you learn more than you ever thought possible, that you find those who are meant to teach, and that you always strive to do your best. Be strong out there. Remember when times get tough that all you need to do is get on your knees. He is always there for you and we are all only a letter away. I'm sure you'll be just great out there. Just keep that upbeat, happy attitude about you and you'll be fine. Be safe...don't get too crazy though but don't lose that spontaneous fun streak you've got in you. haha Good luck!
See you in 2 years Elder Greg Jordan. (: Until Then.
