    Bill was a giant in the Faith. He launched out to visit Cameroon and also supported the work there in many ways. What a joy to be with him and Dora last October! He really nutured us and many medical missionaries over the years and will NEVER be forgotten.

    We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Bill while we were delivering meals-on-wheels about 8 years ago. He was always so friendly and full of energy.
    It was truly inspirational to see someone in their 80’s reaching out and helping others.
    Every time I saw him out in public he would always stop and talk. I hope I can age as well as he did.
    May peace fill your hearts.

    Our sympathy, Bill and Nancy McGee Jackson

    We are so sad to hear about the death of Mr. Jordan. He was such a kind man. The entire family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Rarely do you hear of people today being married for 72 years – what a wonderful example Mr and Mrs Jordan have been to all of us.
