Hi I'm Benjamin Painter

I am a Taekwondo Black Belt and a full time missionary! I love this church, I know it's Christ's church & that's why I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Benjamin. I am a Taekwondo Black Belt. I am a missionary! I am going to own my own buisness someday. I love the church. I own 2 dogs. I have a great family, and an amazing girlfriend (She is waiting for me!) I am serving in Nebraska. I love it, I really do. I believe this church is true, and it brings me a lot of happiness. I want to share that happiness with anyone I can. I have a loving family, girlfriend(someday Wife if I can trick her into saying yes) and Heavenly Father. They love me a lot, and I love them too. They make me so happy. I am really lucky to have them in my life. My favorite thing about the gospel is forever families. I dream of having my own family someday ( and I am going to make it happen). The gospel is completely centered on families, and thats what attracts me to it the most. The gospel truly gives me what I want, and so much more. It gives so much potential and knowledge that it is going to take me forever to even get 1/2 of it down. I really do believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Jesus Christ's church. I have a testimony of it's truthfulness. Everything rings so true, and I have had so many experiences that have built my testimony. What has built my testimony the most is Prayer. Answered prayers to be more specific. I know God hears our and answers prayers.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe this gospel to be true. It is hard to live sometimes but I believe it is true. I tested the church out for myself and then made a choice after. If you are investigating the church or just deciding if this is what you believe, I think you should try and figure it out for yourself. Don't listen to other people if they say it is true or it isn't true, it's about what's true not just what they believe. I have a testimony that if you study this church and follow it's standards to test it out for youself, you will know it to be true. You will find true joy. I know that there is a God, and that He loves us very much. I know that if we pray to him, that he answers our prayers. I know if you honestly and sincerly pray with real intent (meaning you will act on whatever God tells you) He will tell you whatever you need to know. Pray and ask if this truly is His church. I did ( and I still do to keep that feeling in my heart when I need it) and I know this is true. I also know it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by how I live my life. I do my best to follow Jesus Christ as best as I can. I am no where near perfect, but I do my best. I mess up a lot, but the times that I succeed I find so much strength and happiness. Right now I am serving a mission, and I love it. There is so much satisfaction in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with people, and it makes me so happy when they choose to follow Jesus Christ. The way I am living my faith right now, is that I am trying to do as the savior commanded when he said "Feed my sheep". I am doing everything I can to find people who want to follow Jesus Christ(even if they don't know who he is yet). I love Jesus Christ and I want to follow him forever. I do my best every day.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?
