Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Utah. I'm a missionary. I love sports, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old who loves playing sports and spending time in the outdoors. I am currently serving in the Arizona Phoenix Mission and am loving every minute of it. I live with my mom, my two brothers, and my sister. Family is really important to me and I would do anything to help them. I have great friends and family who love me and support me in everything that I do. I have been a member of the church for all my life and have seen the blessings that come from it. I was born and lived in West Jordan, UT for my whole life. My favorite things to do are playing sports, especially basketball, football, and bowling. I also like going camping, hiking, and fishing. I like to draw (even though I'm not very good at it...) and serving whenever I can. I am soft spoken at first, but when you get to know me, I can get along with anybody. I am a fun loving guy and is willing to help anyone out when they need it. I have been blessed with so many great things in my life, and try to be grateful every chance that I get.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my entire life. I have tried to be as active as I can and trying to come closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. My life has not been easy and I have faced a lot of trials in my life but I know that because I am member of the church, my faith has been strengthened. My father passed a away almost eight years ago and that was hard but I know that because of the Plan of Salvation, I will be able to see him again and live with him again. I know that he wont have anymore health problems and can live in a state of peace and joy. I know that the prophet Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the church in these last days so that we can have eternal life. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it to know the truthfulness of it. I know that anyone can come to know of that same thing by following Moroni's promise.

How I live my faith

Growing up in the church, I always wanted to go on a mission. I wanted to help others come unto Christ and on June 2013, I found out that I would be serving in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. I have always been a faithful member of the church. I always participated in service projects as a young man and loved doing it ever since. I liked visiting other members in the ward and getting to know them as people. When you get to know people, then you start to look at them like family. I am always trying to be more Christlike even though I'm not perfect. I strive to magnify my calling whenever I can and love serving others at all times.
