Hi I'm Ben

I love the Outdoors. I am a Missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a High School Graduate and now I have been called to serve in the Texas Houston East Mission! I enjoy music and I enjoy the outdoors! Our Father in Heaven has created this Earth for us to enjoy and I am a firm believer in the exploration of it. I am also a believer that there is no better place to get to know your Maker than being among the things that He has created. I love to play sports such as Soccer or Basketball and I love to do karate. I have tried to pick up playing the piano but have only succeeded in banging out a few notes here and there. Right now I am on a mission in Houston Texas and I have loved every minute of it. It is amazing! But most importantly, I love this Gospel and the joy and peace that it has brought me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by very good parents who taught and instructed me in the ways of the Gospel. There comes a time in every teenagers life when they must truly find out for themselves what they believe and who they are. That point came fairly early in my teenage years and accordingly, I had to find out for myself if all this was actually true. I set it out in my mind that I would find out if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was actually the Heaven's church on Earth. The Book of Mormon contains the Word of God and helps complete the Bible. That was something that I was always taught, but I had never completely understood what that had meant until I took the time to read and ponder about it. As I did so and as I tried to apply the principles that were contained in the Book of Mormon, I found a joy and a happiness that I had never found before! Through experimentation in my life, I found that the Book of Mormon is true. There is no question in my mind that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true and living church on the Earth. As such, I have decided that I want to spread this glad message to everyone who will listen and I invite all who read this to find out for themselves if this is true. I know that if you pray about the Book of Mormon with a sincere heart and a true desire to know if this is true that you WILL receive an answer. There has never been a sincere prayer that wasn't answered. I can testify of that through personal experience. I have seen it in my own life and that means the world to me. You have the means to receive an answer. Go and find out for yourself!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission in the Texas Houston East Mission. I love seeing miracles everyday. As a missionary, I go around spreading the Word with everyone that will listen and helping them understand that the principles of this Gospel and the application of the teachings of Jesus Christ will bring them the most joy and happiness of anything that can be found on Earth. There is so much joy that can be found by making the choice to follow the teachings of the Savior Jesus Christ.
