Hi I'm Elder Benjamin Coffey

I am a musician, an artist, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I am currently serving the Lord on a mission to the people of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. I can speak both English and French and hopefully learn somemore languages on my mission. I play the saxophone, flute, clarinet, and percussion. I was raised in the church but just barely found a true testimony for myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and was raised to be an upright member but its more than just that, I want to be a member in this amazing church so that i can share this message to people everywhere. Being a member of this church has helped me so much in my life that i'm not quite sure who or where i'd be right now without it. It gives me hope for a better world.

How I live my faith

Well right now i am serving a mission in New Caledonia, however thats not the only way i live my faith. It doesn't matter where I go or what I'm doing, I always carry three things with me my "For the Strength of the Youth" pamphlet, my CTR ring, and my temple recommend because I am proud to be a member of this church. I love to help all people to see the love of God in their lives and to help them feel the hope that this Gospel can bring to them.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Elder Benjamin Coffey
Family is so important for not just Mormons but for all people as well. Famillies are where we can turn when we feel like the whole world has turned against us and our lives are falling apart. Famillies are the rock on which we can anchor ourselves so that the storm of life cannot break us. Show more Show less

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Elder Benjamin Coffey
Our prophets are chosen and called by the authority of God. Thanks to the infinite wisdom of our Creator we know who the next prophet will be no matter what happens. This is because there is a specific succession for the men of the Quorum of the Twelve to become the prophet of God. Show more Show less
