Hi I'm Benjamin Gappmayer

I've lived in different places in the United States, and I've been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

Before my mission I was going to college, and after I'm finished serving I'll probably find myself back there soon enough after I'm done. I'm a bit of a nerd (maybe more than a bit). I've spent a fair amount of my life on video games and cartoons. These things can maybe be more than just light leisure- even from the seemingly silly or childish stories we tell, there may be things we can learn. But of course, they can also be leisure. I think people matter. There's all sorts of people to love in the world, even though its not always easy. Some people we meet may be a little different or strange, but still lovable.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe God wants me to serve a mission, that God loves everyone on the earth. Jesus Christ suffered to save us. I have been blessed in my life with experiences that have strengthened my faith, as I've continued in the gospel's path.

How I live my faith

Well, I'm serving a mission to preach and spread the Gospel, and when I return home I'll have been on the field for about 2 years.
