Hi I'm Ben Cullen

I'm a firefighter, communications officer, entrepreneur and missionary! I save lives and I try to save souls.

About Me

I was born and raised in South East Queensland, Australia. I have moved around a few little country towns in the hinterland. I love to cycle, garden and hang out with my mates. I also love looking after my pet animals and giving service to people. When I was 18 I decided that I wanted to serve a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Since I was a young boy I have always admired the missionaries and what they did. Because of the work and help they gave me, I wanted to do the same thing so that I can help people and share the gospel with others. I love to see the change that comes into peoples lives as the accept and follow the example of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born of goodly parents, who cared enough to let me make my own decisions. My parents have been members for some time, so I was born into the Church. I grew up going to all the church activites and classes. I was baptized when I was 8. But it wasnt until I was about 17 the I was converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I didn't make all the best decisions in my life, and I wasnt has happy as I could be. So, seeing how my strength and hope this belief brought to others, I decided to try it out seriously. After studying and praying, I received an answer to my prayers. That answer changed my life. Heavenly Father placed people in my life that I was able to serve and care for. While I was able to serve my friends, I found a peace and happiness unlike any I had ever found before. It was truly amazing to see and feel how much Jesus Christ could change my life. From that time forth, I chose to be a Mormon and to devote all my time to helping people. That is exactly why I am serving a full time mission right now! If you don't believe me, give it a go.

How I live my faith

I believe that life should be lived to it's potential! I love to show my faith by how I live. I am serving as a Mormon missionary in London, England. By doing this, I am able to share what I know to be true with many people each day! I love seeing how a life can be turned around by applying the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have learnt that setting goals and making plans is a key part of success in life. As we stretch to reach worthy goals, our Heavenly Father will help us in all aspects of our life. Whether it be firefighting, communications operations, or everyday missionary work. I know that God answers prayers, so I can put my trust in Him.

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

Ben Cullen
As representatives of Jesus Christ, our purpose is to invite all to come unto Him and gain the blessings that we can gain through following His teachings. However, we don't just come to talk religion. We come to make new friends, to meet new people and to get to know you individually. We want to learn about you so that we can help you in any way possible. As missionaries, we don't just offer a spiritual message, we offer service. We follow the example of Jesus Christ, so we do those things He did. You should try it out! Show more Show less
