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.
