Hi I'm Benjamin Fager

I went to the same high school as my grandmother, I love hanging out with my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the mormon church, I enjoy doing many, many things. Soccer is by far my favorite sport I have played it for 13 years, there is something wonderful about playing a sport that is outside and fast paced! I have 4 awesome siblings, one brother and 3 sisters, and I am the youngest, we all love to get to get together play card games and just have alot of fun! I am 19 years old, I love being active, and I love the sunshine!

Why I am a Mormon

At first I was a mormon, because my parents were apart of this religion, however, as I read the Book of Mormon more often and started doing the right things such as praying every morning and night, going to church, not only for my parents, but also because I wanted to know if this religion was right for me, my Heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost, testified to me that this is the only true church upon the earth. What a blessing it has been to be apart of such a great church. There is happiness to be found by following our savior's example , that cannot be found anywhere else. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now at this stage in my life, I am a full time missionary for The church, I am serving in the St.Louis Missouri mission and it has been so far the best time of my life! I love sharing the gospel with others, seeing others change and accept Jesus Christ as the savior of the world, as the only way to achieve full happiness, has provided me with the greatest joy!

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Benjamin Fager
Yes, a husband and wife can be together forever! It is a marvelous blessing, which is a reality, because the sealing powers of the priesthood, are here on the earth, and as it is says in scripture "that which shall be bound on earth shall be bound in heaven." That also means that our families will be able to live together forever also! Show more Show less

Who was Joseph Smith?

Benjamin Fager
Joseph Smith was a young boy age 14, who had a concern for which of the many churches was the true church, one day while reading in the bible, a passage encouraged him to pray to his Heavenly Father. He did, and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him and told him to join none of the churches, but to restore the church which Jesus Christ had organized when he was on the earth. Joseph Smith then with the assistance of other heavenly messengers, brought forth the Book of Mormon, and in time restored The Church of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the restoration.
