Hi I'm Benjamin Harvey

I'm from Mapleton, Utah. I'm a missionary, I love playing sports, spending time with friends and family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the sixth of seven children. I was born in California, but i grew up in Utah and Texas. I enjoy playing sports, watching movies, reading books, and spending time with friends. I have been attending college for a year, but I am now going to serve a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Texas, Spanish speaking beginning in June of 2012.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a Mormon household. However, I know and have a testimony for myself that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, and that through Him we can repent of our sins and be Resurrected as He was. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet on the earth today who receives revelation from God for the world. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, that he translated the Book of Mormon, and that through him the gospel was restored in these latter days. I know the Book of Mormon is true and is another testament of Jesus Christ along with the Bible. I know that Heavenly Father loves and knows each and every one of us, and that we can pray to Him anytime and He will hear and answer. I know these things to be true, and I say them in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to obey all of God's commandments and trying to become more like Him. I now have the opportunity to show my faith by serving a full time mission. I hope to be able to express and show my faith to others as I share the gospel that I know and love with them. Currently I am serving a full time mission for the Church in the Texas San Antonio Area where we devote all our time to try to help others come unto Christ.
