Elder Jordan's Homecoming

Elder Jordan Briggs returned home from the Arizona, Tucson Mission on May 9th at 2:29pm! He is a joy to be around and we love our spiritual GIANT! He is just as tall as when he left! Jordan reported his mission the Sunday after he returned home, which was also Mothers Day. It was a great weekend filled with lots of Jordan hugs, family, friends and food. Here are a few pictures from his homecoming.

Jordan and a former Companion Elder Jeffers. They served together as Zone Leaders in Sliver City, NM and also as Assistants to the President.

Jordan plans to attend school at BYU-Idaho starting in the fall. We are so proud of Jordan and his service as a missionary. He was just called to serve as a Ward Mission Leader in the Bluffdale Young Single Adults.  Go Jordan!
