Hi I'm Ben
I'm a missionionary in western Nevada and I'm a mormon
I'm from Maryland and right now I'm serving a misison in Las Vegas, Nevada. Outside of my mission I'm a regular guy who happens to be amazing at Guitar Hero and Rock Band. I love to play piano and almost any sport. After my misison I'll return to college in Provo and pursue a career in economics.
Why I am a Mormon
I come from a devout Mormon family but I think every person at one point in his or her life has to go through their own conversion process. Mine happened as I was a senior in high school and decided that I would stop "going through the motions" and really apply the gospel to my life. I immediately saw the effect that had on me and the happiness that it brought into my life. Being on a mission has made my budding testimony blossom as I've seen how it can impact others. I know the gospel blesses families and I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and I am so grateful for that knowledge.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by sacrificing two years of my life and devoting that to serving God and my fellow man. Daily I go out and strive to bring people closer to Christ. That is my sole purpose for these two years and it has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I have first-hand seen miracles as me and other missionaries diligently seek out people who will turn their hearts toward God.
