Hi I'm Ben Fagg

I'm a southern boy, a rugby player and leave soon to fulfill a mission to serve the people of Czech Republic and Slovokia.

About Me

I was born in Las Vegas but have spent most of my growing years in Georgia. I started playing rugby when I was in the 8th grade and fell in love. My team went to nationals 2 times while I played for them, and I have also been a captain for the team. I am an Eagle Scout and have helped others with their scouting experience. Over the years I have participated in about 23 eagle projects and have loved the brotherhood that comes from being a Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have always gone to Church and to Seminary and actively participated in other programs and activities like EFY and Youth Conferences, but over the past year I needed to decide whether or not I should go on a mission. I prayed a lot and read the Book of Mormon. I talked to close friends and family. After a lot of reflection and prayer I realized that it had to be true. I looked at my friends and their religion and many others, but this one, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the only Church that answers questions about God's Plan of Happiness for each of us. I look forward to sharing the gospel truth and teaching others to understand their part in Heavenly Father's plan.

How I live my faith

I am a leader in my age group. I work with my peers to try and bring those who have stopped coming to Church or those who feel left out and have tried to help them and make them feel loved and wanted. I try to be an example to those around me. My friends have always been older and have been a great example of how I should live my life. I try to not simply talk about Gospel teachings, but to put into practice Jesus Christ's words.
