Hi I'm Benji

I grew up in South Carolina and now I live in Utah and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hello Everyone, My name is Benji. I joined the church on the 15th of January of 2005 at the age of 17. I have been serving strong in the church every since. I work for Layton City as an irrigation tech. I like to play sports such as baseball, basketball and soccer. I am also a big fan of outdoor activities.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I was a member I always wondered what my purpose in life was and the current religion I was in was not answering the questions that I had. I quit attending church and started questioning on where i was suppose to be in life and then I started praying to my Heavenly Father where he wanted me to be. I prayed for my answer for a good two years until He finally answered my prayers. I met some friends of mine who were mormons and they invited me to come to church with them one sunday and i agreed that i would go. We only made it to sacrament but that was all it took for me to realize that is where i am suppose to be. I dont think the smile left my face for the rest of that day. I asked them how i could become a member and they told me they would set me up with the missionaries. So i took the missionary discussions for six months and then I was baptized. It was one of the greatest dissions i have ever made!

How I live my faith

Right now I serve in my singles ward as a Ward Missionary. I go hometeaching once a month to check on members in the ward to see how they are doing and to pass along the First Presidency message. I go to church activities as often as i can and I do the best I can to live the commandments.
