Hi I'm Benjamin Ellsworth

I've moved 10 times in my life but only in between Michigan and Texas, I'm serving in the USLC Mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the eldest of 8. I have 5 siblings my parents had and I have 2 adopted siblings as well. I'm currently serving in the Utah Salt Lake City Mission and I'm loving it! Before my mission I loved to play sports of any kind, but my favorite has to be Volleyball and Basketball, still love to play when I have the chance! But I have a nerdy side I played a lot of video games as well as board and card games. So basically if I like it I'll do it. I love working hard and knowing I helped build something or helped make someone's day better. Music is very important to me even though I struggle playing anything on any instrument, I could listen to music for days on end! Serving a mission has been the best but hardest thing for me so far in my life, I love helping others find true happiness through Christ and His restored Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both my parents are members. My dad was born into the church as well. But my mom is a convert. Even though I was born into the church I needed to find out for myself if it was true, there was a time in my life where I was inactive. I went to church every week but I did not pay attention at all, I was lost and alone. So I prayed and asked what I can do and I was given an answer "listen" the answer was right in front of me the whole time! As I focused and listened to the talks and lessons in church I felt loved and not alone anymore, I know that this is Christ's church and that he loves each and everyone of us, all we need to do is follow him and he will lead us to happiness!

How I live my faith

I go to church every single Sunday and attend Sacrament meeting to become more like Christ. I live my faith every single day by going out and teaching the Gospel to everyone Member or Non-Member. I love being a missionary because I know it is true and it will help everybody who turns to Christ.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Benjamin Ellsworth
We believe that in order to raise a good family we need to have both parental figures, the husband to provide for the family and to protect the family and the wife to raise the children and help the family in other ways. We believe that they should be partners and equally help raise a family. They have different but very important roles. Show more Show less
