Hi I'm Sister Ana Bentley

My name is Sister Ana Bentley, and I am currently a missionary in the Missouri Independence Mission!

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I am 21 years old, and currently serving a mission in the Missouri Independence Mission. I have three siblings, and one cute niece! My school major is Exercise Science and I am hoping to become an Athletic Trainer. I love sports, and I was competitive in Tennis, Softball, Dance, Cheer, and Track. My dream would be to work for the Denver Broncos! I love being a missionary, and know that there is no greater call than to share my testimony of Jesus Christ and bring other unto Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon. My parents were raised as Mormon's as well. I know that this has been a huge blessing in my life. We all have our ups and downs, but knowing that there is a Heavenly Father that truly loves and cares for each and every person is so comforting. There comes a time in everyone's life where we need to decide for ourselves what we want to believe and what we know to be true. When this time came for me, I went to the source. I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father if what I had been taught my whole life is true or not. My answer didn't come all at once. But I felt like I needed to read the Book of Mormon. While reading the Book of Mormon, I felt warmth and happiness that came from it's teachings. I knew that this book was from God. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know this to be true with my whole heart. This has made me into who I am today and I am eternally grateful for that.

How I live my faith

I love my faith by helping others stay strong in the church. Giving support to my friends and helping ensure they get to all of their church meeting and by going to the temple each week.
