MEET ELDER PAVIK
Hello! My name is Ben, but for the next two years, I will be known as Elder Pavik.
I am excited to announce that I have been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was chosen to serve in the Kenya Nairobi mission. I will spend the next two years, from September 30, 2015 to September 30, 2017, serving and teaching the people of Kenya and Tanzania.
I graduated from Granite Bay High School in 2015. In my time there I became a accomplished long distance runner receiving varsity letters in both track and cross-country. I developed a love for airplanes and hope to pursue a future in aeronautical engineering, and learning to enjoy serving others.
I am excited to have my testimony grow as well as the testimony of those I serve.
I will be uploading my adventure regularly so I hope you will check back periodically.

Time is really flying. Just realized I am remaining only with 10 weeks left. It is crazy how much has happened in these past 2 years. So many Good moments, trials and everything in between. I guess that is why they say going on a mission is like enrolling in the Lords university. This week has been really productive. We were blessed with some more people to teach and have had a lot of support [...]
Not to much happening this week. We just got our transfers. I am now starting Transfer number 16. I am still here in Busia with the same companion, Elder Chenani. Elder Fraga is now in our zone and Elder Mortezezadah has been transferred out. We had a baptism for Sister Fiona. We were pretty excited for that. One thing I have been thinking about this week is how we are not really giving anything until [...]
