Hi I'm Ben
I was born in New Zealand, Live for a couple years in Aussie, moved to Texas when I was young and then moved back to New Zealand just before I was 8. I've been living there ever since. Best place in the world I reckon. I'm now serving a mission for two years in Michigan, USA. It's the best thing I've done, spreading the message of Christ is so wonderful. I like sports, team sports mostly. I love learning about all kinds of things especially about the gospel but I love learning in general. One of my greatest desires for this life is to be a husband and a father. I love games of all kinds. I love nature. I love art, not really absract or modern art though. I love loking at the sky, at dawn, at dusk, at night, at day, whenever. I love to love.
Why I am a Mormon
Because I was in a time of my life when I needed hope for something more and so I turned to the things my parents had taught me when young. I saught to know if God was really there, if Christ was the Saviour and Redeemer, if the Book of Mormon was true and if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was Their Church. By the power of the Holy Spirit it was made known to me that all of it was so.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The principles taught in it are the principles that bring me closer to God. By reading about them I have learnt, and continue to learn, about them and then I can go and live them.
What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?
Happiness. There isn't really anything greater than that. Happiness is found in Christ
How I live my faith
My faith is in Christ. That through Him we may inherit Eternal Life. So I strive daily to do the things He asks that we may qualify for His Grace. I try to share the gospel with all who will listen. To share the wonderful Plan of Happiness that God has for us.
