Hi I'm Benny
Hi, I'm Benny. I'm 19 years old from Utah and am currently serving a mission in Denmark.
Before my mission I studied physics at the University of Utah. I love to listen to and play music. I play around ten instruments along with singing and beatboxing. I compose a lot of my own music, everything from bluegrass to progressive metal to classical. Before my mission I also wrote a novel that explores the world of lucid and shared dreaming. I speak Danish, English, and some Spanish and I like Lord of the Rings, which essentially makes me Viggo Mortensen, right?
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because of my testimony. In The Book of Mormon, there is a promise at the end that if you read it and ask God with real intent and faith in Christ if it's true, he will manifest the truth of it unto you. I know of no other book with a comparable promise. I have done as the book exhorts and received a witness from the Spirit of God that it is indeed a true record. It is something I can not deny. Because I know it's true, I know that God loves all his children. I know that the words contained within are irrefuteable. Thus, it guides my life.
How I live my faith
I am serving a full-time LDS mission in Denmark right now. I go out with my companion every day to meet and serve people and share the glorious message of the restored gospel with them. The joy that comes into others' lives when they receive the word of Christ is of far greater value than the expense and time that I and my family give.
