Ben Malcolmson: Faith, purpose, and perseverance

    A former HPUMC Youth member, Ben Malcolmson attended USC in college and unexpectedly made the football team as a walk-on. While on the team, Ben felt called to start Bible studies and lead prayer groups with his teammates. Time after time, he failed to accomplish what God was asking him to do. Or so he thought.

    Years later, Malcolmson crossed paths with a former teammate who revealed just how big of an impact Ben made, though he never knew it. 

    As Ben’s story demonstrates, God has a purpose for all of us. Whether we realize it or not, our Heavenly Father is at work in our lives, encouraging us to take the next step in our faith and working through us to change lives, though we may not see the fruits of our labors.
