Hi I'm Ben McKenna

I live in Northern Ireland. I love football. I will beat you at fifa. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a full time mission in the England London South Mission! It has been a wonderful experience for me to learn and to grow and come to know that everything my parents have taught me is true. They have been a wonderful example to me and my other brothers ans sisters! I grew with 3 brothers and 3 sisters! So my mum always had her hands full. One thing that I love more than anything is football. A Liverpool FC fan and proud supporter of Northern Ireland! We dont have the best side but we have the best fans in the world! Love it! Also play fifa an unhealthy amount!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, and went to church every Sunday. More so because my Mum and Dad told me to. I never really knew why and I got to the age where I needed to find things out for myself. There was a point when I didnt want to go to church and would have rather pursued the things of the world, but lucky enough I managed to find a testimony! I was at an event called "Especially for Youth," which is a week long convention held by our church. The things that I learnt there and the experience I had was amazing I came to know that the church was true and that I needed to serve a mission and it was in August 2011 I made the decision to serve a mission and in August 2012 I said goodbye to my family and football and began to serve the Lord in the England London South Mission! Best choice ever! :) I am a Mormon because I want to be and I know that it is The Church of Jesus Christ that he leads by direct revelation through a living prophet today.

How I live my faith

Well I have put aside all of my interests and education for two years to be a missionary for the Lord Jesus Christ. This is one of the greatest choices I have made. The way the Lord has blessed me and my family has been amazing. The Lord always gives us so much more back than we put in and he always knows what is best for us and thats why I am here! Jesus Christ suffered so much so that we dont have to, he loves and wants us to seek the good out of everything. I am grateful for Jesus Christ in my life and I want others to feel the joy that comes from Christ`s atonement. We can come to know of the reality of the Saviour through the Book of Mormon. Which with the Bible is the word of God and has everything that we will ever need to get us through this life no matter how hopeless and helpless we may feel. The Book of Mormon is true! Read it.
