Hi I'm Ben Stapley

I am from Mesa Arizona but I am a student at BYU-I, I am currently serving in the Canada Vancouver Mission, and I am Mormon!

About Me

My goal is to be a dentist and I will eventually accomplish this at BYU-I after serving my full time mission in British Columbia. I dream of surfing in Australia, I love to surf even though i don't get to go very often living in Arizona. I was in FFA and have raised two sheep and a couple of turkeys, although I live in the suburbs I still consider myself a farm boy. I was on the swim team for 11 years and I enjoy long distance running, I intend on accomplishing a Iron Man one day. I am an Eagle scout I have two little sisters one older brother whom I love very very much. I am a very outdoorsy kind of person and enjoy fishing, kayaking, snowboarding, rock climbing, and especially Long boarding I even build them, it saves money and it is more fun that way. One of my passions is watching a good adventure or horror movie late at night with family or friends. Another one of my passions currently is sharing the Gospel with those willing to hear it. I am currently searving my mission in Vancouver Canada and enjoying every minute of it. Since the announcement about 18 year old elders I decided to leave my plans for college and serve here in Vancouver. But for now I am here in Vancouver and loving every munite of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a mormon and have been chizzling away at the ruff spots on my life to be the righteous person I am today.I know that jesus christ came here and suffered for our sins and every time I partake of the sacrament I renew my covanents that I made with him when I was baptised, I am greatful for the preisthood that I have today and I am greatful for my testimoney in the name of Jesus Christ amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith every minute of every day. Serving a mission makes you think of Christ all the time, and I love it. When I wake up I pray when I leave home I pray and when I come back I pray. The time that is in between I teach lessons to members, investigators and people on the street. I love doing what I do here in Vancouver.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Ben Stapley
Mormons live the same as any other family we don't do any weird rituals or anything like that. The only difference is our standards about drugs, alcohol, how we dress, and what we say. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Ben Stapley
I am a Mormon Missionary, currently Serving in Vancouver Canada. We Proslyte so that we can bring others closer to Jesus Christ. It is kind of hard to tell people about Jesus Christ without going out and talking to them. Also we do it because we enjoy it. I have only been out on my mission for a little while but I can tell you that it is a awesome experience, just talking to people and telling those who are willing to listen about things that will change there life.
