Hi! My name is Ben Gilbert. I am from Mount Vernon, Iowa in the good ole’ USA.
I previously used this page to document my adventures as a missionary in the Gold Coast of Africa, otherwise known as Ghana. I had an amazing two years serving the Ghanaian people as well as Our Lord. I loved every second I got to spend there. It was truly an amazing experience!
However, life goes on, and so will this blog!
I am now attending Brigham Young University (BYU) – Idaho, majoring in Psychology. I still have the experiences of being a missionary close to my heart and reflect on them often. As such, I have ideas and philosophies that like to share because I have unique perspectives and I feel like I have a clear, mature head on my shoulders due to the fact that I did spend two years in West Africa.
I hope you enjoy my experiences as much as I do!
Below are some of my favorite pictures from my mission.
