Hi I'm Bognár Bence

I'm from Hungary. Yes, I'm always hungry. ;) I'm currently serving a mission for two years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Kecskemét, Hungary. I have two sister, Berta and Barbi and I really love them. Barbi was in a mission in Germany and now lives there with my Brother-in-law, Kyle. My mom's name is Erika, she works a lot, She's got two jobs, one of her jobs is teaching Physical Education and volleyball, so my whole family is really good at volleybal except me... I don't take after my mom in that talent... She works in the house as well and I help for her when I can. My father's name is John or in hungarian János, he is kind of like me, he likes sleeping and watching tv :D and he works hard too. He is an electricitian and he has had a lot of different jobs in the past. I love drums, unfortunatelly I'm not a professianal but I really want to be mastered in that... I love motorbikes too. I've got a bike back home, but I gave her two years break. :) I started the university last year, I was studying engineering but I dicedied to give it a break and serve a full-time misson for two years. I want to help the Lord's work and I felt that this is the best way I can do it. I like sports for example bike tours, running, playing football... I love reading my Scriptures, and going to Church and fun activities.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was 1 year old. And so I was brought up in the chruch, but I have chosen for myself to be a faithful member because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Of course it wasn't easy to decide, especially because most of my friends and relatives do not share the same beliefs as I do. But I always knew that this is the right thing to do so I made my decision because that's what brings me and my family lasting happines and peace in our lives. I know that God is real and that we are his children. I know that the Church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to become a better person every day and following the teachings of Jesus Christ and the prophets. I pray and read my scriptures daily to know what God wants me to do. That's why I'm serving a mission because I received an answer from Heavenly Father that He wants me to serve a full-time mission. And I love it! I heard this quote not too long ago: "they don't care how much you know untill they know how much you care" and that is really true. I believe that unconditional love is the key for better relationship with others, and this love comes from God. So yeah, I try to love everybody, of course sometimes it's hard because of pride but as I said (or wrote) we can become better person day by day, step by step. Because how do you eat an elephant? Bit by bit. :)
