Hi I'm Benjamin Varnell

Hi, I'm Benjamin Varnell and I am a Mormon. I grew up in the state of Utah, and Im called to serve in Irvine, California.

About Me

I am currently about to serve in Irvine, California mission as a full time missionary. I am starting my mission after my high school graduation as an 18 year old. I have grown up in the LDS church and have had a pretty good life. I have had some struggles regarding my parents divorce but I have kept strong in the church and I have certainly been blessed for it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the LDS church not just because my parents were both LDS. I consider my self responsible for my decisions and that includes having a reason for being Mormon. My Reason for joining the church is that I feel that it is true, and that when I am taught or when I read the Scriptures I have had the conformation from the spirit letting me know of it's truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participating in church activities. I have graduated from seminary and have received my eagle scout award. I have always strived to be a good friend to others and to help when I am asked to give service. My mission is to serve all those that need it. Through the church I will be able to help serve those in my mission in Irvine, California and I look forward to the great spiritual feelings that come from serving the Lord.
