Hi I'm Benjamin

I'm from Idaho Falls, Idaho. Im 18 years old. I love doing things in the outdoors and working hard. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a band member. I have played trombone for six years, euphonium for two years, and tuba for two years. I graduated high school this summer from high school. I graduated with honors. I love to go and do things outdoors such as white water rafting, kyaking, hunting, fishing, and camping. I am an avid knife and pen collector. I love to play soccer, basketball, volleyball, football, and rugby. I am an eagle scout thru the Boy Scouts of America. I am the oldest of two boys in my family and I love pets, especially dogs. I am currently serving a two year church mission in the Melbourne Australia Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon. I grew up in the church and I loved every second of it. I first started getting my testimony when I was about 14. Up to then I just leaned on my parents testimony. My testimony is this, I know that the church is true and was restored by the Prophet, Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for our sins so that we could live with Heavenly Father again. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us, and that plan helps us grow closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and helps us establish a better relationship with God. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that the words spoken in it are for us to better relate to our problems so that we know how we can get help. I know that whenever we try to seek help, especially through prayer, that we will get an answer. I know that all these things are true because I have asked and gotten answers that it is true. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet of God and that through him and the other general authorities that we know what Heavenly Father wants us to be doing. I love my Heavenly Father for all the things he has done for me and I say that in the name of Jesus Christ, our lord, savior and redeamer. Amen

How I live my faith

I am a strong member of the LDS church. I love doing service projects whenever I can and I love going out the the missionaries when possible. The callings that I have had in the past are Deacons Quorum President, Teachers Quorum President, Priest Quorum First Assistant to the Ward Bishop. Then in 2013 I received my mission call from the church to go on an English speaking mission in Australia.

What is the priesthood?

Benjamin
The answer for this question is simple. The priesthood is the power of God on the earth today that helps us help eachother when we need help. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Benjamin
You can know by talking to the missionaries. Also by reading the Book of Mormon and pondering and praying to Heavenly Father to know that it is true. Prayer is the best way that you can know if Mormonism is true. Show more Show less
