Hi I'm Matias

I am a member for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or a MORMON

About Me

I was born in Santiago, Chile. I have been a member of the Church my whole life. I have 4 brothers, all active in the Church. I'm currently serving a mission in the Missouri Independence Mission. I love sports, and anything to do with it. I have done a year of college.

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon faith is not just a "Sunday faith" but it is also a way of life. I was born a member, and my parents taught me that being a member didn't just mean going to Church on Sunday, but also living the standards that are taught by our leaders and the commandments that were taught by our Savior Jesus Christ. I know that the "Gospel", we hear that everywhere, is the way that we need to live our lives. We need to follow the example of our Savior. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Light. The greatest blessing of being a member of this Church is truly happiness and peace.

How I live my faith

After returning from my full-time mission, I am now serving with the Young men of my local congregation. I try to always find the best in others, and try to be like Jesus Christ. I know that I'm far from perfect, but the Gospel gives me the tools to improve myself and the life of my family.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Jospeh Smith was a young man whom the Lord called to be a prophet. Like in ancient times, the Lord called a prophet to teach his Gospel. We believe that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, so: why wouldn't He call a prophet today? Show more Show less
