Hi I'm Ben

I'm a musician, a thinker, a student, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full time student at BYU, and after my freshman year at the Y, I'll be serving a full time mission in Sacramento California. I love singing Italian arias, all kinds of inspirational songs, hymns, and just about anything else. I enjoy composing music for the piano, and spend a lot of my time improvising random pieces, and make a bunch of arrangements for hymns. I'm majoring in Psychology (with a minor in music) at BYU, and hope to be a clinical psychologist later on in life. My family and I moved from Malaysia to Salt Lake City in 2009, and we've loved every moment here. We are just so blessed to have met so many wonderful individuals, and the blessings of our Lord have just been amazing to witness.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, and was raised by a wonderful mother who would lead by her powerful examples of faith amidst trials and adversities. This gospel has brought me much strength and comfort over the course of my life, and has helped me immensely in overcoming my own personal trials.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through example. I refrain from using crass language, and attempt to uplift others through my actions whenever possible. I think a key way in which I live my faith is by loving all, and hating none. I have worked hard at being calm, and being slow to anger. I've had several callings over the course of my life, namely as a branch pianist back in Malaysia, as a ward missionary in my young single adult ward at BYU, and now as a full time missionary serving in the California Sacramento mission.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No. We help any and all who are in need. In fact, members of the church are some of the first responders when giving relief to disaster areas. As a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, I am entrusted to give service to those who are in need of it. Show more Show less
