Hi I'm Benjamin Jeske

I am the third child of seven. I have been in the church my whole life I'm serving a mission in Ecuador. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Most of the things that I tend to want to do usually involve sports. I have never really been hooked on one sport but instead I am more off a fan of all sports. Some of the things that I have accomplished are becoming an Eagle scout and winning the spirit award at school twice. i have graduated from high school and i'm going to be serving a mission in Ecuador for the next two years. after which I will be attending Brigham Young University Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I have a very firm and strong testimony in the book of Mormon I have read and prayed to God asking him if the book was true and I did receive an answer. Not through someone telling me that it was but through the feeling that I got after words. with that feeling that I got back I could no longer question the truthfulness of the book of Mormon. Because of this knowledge I have been able to expand my testimony to know that Joseph Smith was a true and an inspired prophet of our time. I also know that the church that Joseph Smith started is a true church and the one that I am a part of today. I know that the power that Jesus had back then to heal the sick is the power that I have which is the priesthood which is the power of god. I know that this church is true and that we have a prophet today just as the people did back then, and I know that he leads and directs this church in which ever way God sees fit. i also know that Jesus is our savior and our redeemer and that through him and only him can man be saved and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith to the highest standard i do everything I am suppose to do and do it usually without complaint. I have been able to serve in a number of calling such as deacons quorum president teachers quorum president and priest quorum first assistant. I also was a Sunday school teacher for a few months. through the church I have had the opportunity to serve a number of different people through yard work, cleaning, or just fixing something for them. through this service i have been able to meet and get to know lots of nice and wonderful people.
