Today, at 5 PM - Jordan Taylor Faulkner will be set apart to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He will spread the gospel through the northern part of Quezon City (just west of the capital Manila), Philippines in the Tagalog language (I'm sure among many others).
At 9 PM, he will board an airplane for Los Angeles. At midnight, he will board another plane bound for Hong Kong, where he will stay the night before traveling on to the Missionary Training Center in Manila. He will spend 8 or 9 weeks there learning the language and prepping to teach.
He would love to receive letters and even packages to this address:
Elder Jordan Faulkner
Missionary Training Center
13 Temple Drive
Corner White Plains Avenue
Green Meadows Subdivision
Quezon City 1110, Metro Manila
This address will be good through the first week of January. I don’t have an exact date of when he will be exiting. Mail to the Philippines takes between 2 and 6 weeks (per the USPS website), so keep that in mind when you are shipping something near the end.
Thank you for supporting him as he leaves us for this short time so that others may be with their family for eternity.
