Hi I'm Elder Benjamin T

I'm a Mormon Missionary.

About Me

I am a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will be seving my mission until April. I am a very happy person I love to smile and make friends. I love to cook and to be outside; fishing, hunting, hiking, playing soccer, and being with friends. I am learning how to play guitar. I love to read, watch movies and listen to music. I will be going to college when I get home, I am going to major in Mortuary Science and minor in Business. I speak spanish fluently.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the only true gospel on the face of the earth. I was blessed in this church but I was never active in the church. When I was 18 I started getting active, I started going to a singles branch, where young adults go to church between the ages of 18 and 29. I started reading the Book of Mormon, praying and doing all the things I needed to. I was making myself to enter into the Temple of our God, I needed to live the highest standard of obedience to enter into this Holy House, I was repenting or changing. My Bishop from the ward where my family is supposed to go to church and branch President from the singles branch told me I should think and pray about serving a mission. So I did and I know the Lord has called me to serve a mission and I know he sent me to the right place, where I can help the most people change and better their lives. I am now a much better man and I am a much better member because I am serving the Lord full time. I know with all of my heart that the Book of Mormon is Holy Scripture and the it was written by the ancient Prophets of the Americas, it was translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that the Priesthood of our God has been restored to the earth once again. I know we have a Prophet on the earth today and gives us revealed truths every month in the Ensign and through the General Conference. I know that I have been called by a Prophet of God to serve a mission.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary like I stated in my earlier statement. What I do is teach the restored gospel of Jesus Christ to all who will listen. I go and tell people about Joseph Smith and the revealed truths he recieved from our Heavenly Father. This calling is a full time calling for two years, I go to a foreign area, well away from home. I work with another man my same age he is my companion we eat, work and live side by side for at least 6 weeks. We are called Elders, which is our calling. We share our testimonies to all who whill listen and we do all we can to help people change their lives for the better. We do all this for service we save money and work really hard to come out into the mission all we don't get paid for anything we do in the mission field.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Elder Benjamin T
Missionaries talk about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We share our testimonies of how the gospel has blessed our lives and what it can do for the lives of others. We also teach about The Plan of Salvation or the Plan that God has prepared for us to return to his presence. The Gospel of Jesus Christ which explains the five pinciples of the Gospel, Faith Repentance, Baptism, Recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the End. and the last thing missionaries teach is the comandments God has given us to make us free from sin and guilt.
