Hi I'm Ben

I grew up in Texas, I am a missionary for the Frankfurt Germany mission.

About Me

I grew up being a bit of a daredevil, from mountain biking to cliff-diving I've always craved new experiences. I also love to work with my hands, crafting tools and projects just for the fun of it. I was never very social in my teenage life but with a bit of work I was able to become far more friendly and develop a love for the people I speak to instead of viewing it as a chore. I received my mission call in May of 2016 and and was assigned to Samara Russia. I later received news that due to a few political issues I would be re-assigned and am now serving a mission in Frankfurt Germany. From September 2016-September 2018

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that the goal of human existence is to achieve happiness, for ourselves and those around us. Many people say that to be happy comes from partying, physical intimacy and financial success. Yet despite what these people say, I see more fun and enjoyment in the lives of people who have none of that. The people who have almost nothing yet selflessly share it, who live there lives for people, not for self gain. The Lds faith is the church that I have found teaches that more than any other. And that, is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I don't want to force my views on anyone, especially religion. But this gospel has given me such a unique outlook on my life I want everyone to experience it. So I share the gospel when ever I am asked about it. Aside from Scripture study, prayer and Church attendance my life is like everyone else. I have hardship and pains, Joy and learning experiences, the only difference is my view on it. With the teachings of God I know I never face anything alone so I live my faith to serve people and to become the best person I can be.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Ben
As a Missionary I receive no payment for the two years I serve. The money that I use for my housing, food, and various expenses all come from my own saving and from donations of my family. Well it is strongly encouraged, serving a mission is entirely the missionaries choice and using your own funds gives you a better respect for the time spent in the mission field. Show more Show less
