Hi I'm Benjamin

I love football and snowboarding. I'm serving a mission to the people in Quebec Canada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old who has been called by a prophet to serve a mission. I am striving to learn the French language to help the people in Canada. Before my mission I played football at SVU in Virginia and loved every moment. I also love snowboarding and in general winter. I have many great friends and try to be a friend to everyone. I love sharing the gospel and the happiness that it brings into the lives of those who accept it.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Is it because that's what my parents are? Maybe partially. Friends have also played a major rule in my desire to be apart of this great church. They have been such great examples to me and have always been there for me. More so, though, the reason I continue to be a Mormon is because of the testimony of the gospel I have received. I love the scriptures and the teachings that I continually learn by reading and studying them. I love being able to feel the Holy Spirit in my life on a day-to-day basis, and the strength that comes from following its promptings. I know that Jesus atoned for my sins and the sins of the world, and that he suffered tremendous amounts of pain and agony for my sake. He did this so that all mankind might repent and live with Him again someday. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book, that has been translated through the power of God, or the Priesthood. I know that Heavenly Father chose Joseph Smith to restore His true church to the earth again and to translate the Book of Mormon. I also know that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet on the earth today and that he receives revelations for the benefit of the church and our well being. I have gained a testimony of these things through the power of the Holy Ghost, who has been the source for many other promptings in my life.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by serving a 2 year mission in Canada Montréal. I have learned and am still learning to share the Gospel to the people there in there own language. I am inviting others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel thtough faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. This brings great joy in my life and helps me love the church and everything about it so much more.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by the prophets of the people of ancient America. It is a record of the people from the time that God commanded Lehi to depart out of Jerusalem until the end of the Nephite people. The Book of Mormon cantains the teachings of the prophets and testifies of the divinity of Christ and His gospel. It climaxes with a crowning visit from Jesus Christ after His resurrection and of His works and teachings. The book was compiled by one of the last prophets named Mormon, who it also gains its name from. He put it together and included the teachings that had been written for our day. We can know the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon if we read and study it then pray with faith asking God if it is true. Show more Show less
