Hi I'm Ben Elgan

I am from Utah, i'm a student who loves to travel and stay active. I'm a missionary in Mexico City and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student from Cache Valley, Utah. I will be serving a mission in Mexico City from August 2013-August 2015. I love to travel, play tennis, ski, camp, and do anything outdoors. I grew up in the Church and it has shaped the person I have become in an amazingly profound way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I know that God has a plan for me, and loves and knows me personally. I know that through the Atonement of Christ we can repent for our sins, be clean, and return to live with Him for eternity. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. It truly is the world of God, and if we live by it we will return to live with him again. I know that the prophet of our church is a true prophet of God. The words he speaks are God's words, and we will be truly blessed if we hearken unto them. This church brings so much joy to my life, and I am so grateful for it.

How I live my faith

The best way I have found to live my faith and to participate in a community or ward is to serve. I learned through many service oppurtunites, one in particular i helped build a house for a member family in Tonga, that truly no greater joy can come to you like it can when you serve others. I believe that if we follow the example that Jesus Christ set for us of serving, we can truly live a happy life.
