Hi I'm Ben Wright

I am Canadian. I love the Temple. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in the England London South mission. I enjoy doing all sorts of things, but being a Canadian, I especially like hiking through the mountains and such. I like music, and just having a good time with good people. Basically, I am 19, and I enjoy doing the things most 19 year olds do, whilst enjoying the happiness that comes from living the standards that Jesus Christ has set for us.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love God, and I can't imagine a life without the gifts promised for eternity. People may believe that because I grew up in the church I was forced into it or something, but I learned for myself in my teenage years that this church is true. I don't think anything could ever make me believe otherwise because of the strong Spiritual witness I have received of it's truthfulness.

How I live my faith

Well, firstly I'm currently serving a mission, so I'm trying to bring the gospel to others. I also try my hardest to be an example to those around me. I love the opportunity I have now to share the eternal happiness I have that can be gained through developing faith. Another thing is that as I can see the temple from my home, I've made sure to make it a big part of my life. From recognizing its sacredness at a young age, to performing saving ordinances for those who never had the chance to receive them in this life at an older age. I think the most important thing I've learned though as a missionary is that through following the example of Jesus Christ and devoloping Christlike Attributes, not only are we happy, but everyone else can be as well! It's a win-win situation!
