Hi I'm Matt J.T.

I love being outdoors and I am a mormon

About Me

I am from the greatest state in the world Idaho. I am the youngest of six children. I am serving as a missionary in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission. I love being outdoors and with people that I love and care about.. I want to be an architect one day and will go to college when my mission comes to an end. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and always enjoyed going to church because that is where I got to be with my friends and also I felt good there. I came to later find out that the good feeling is the spirit. I came to the knowledge that this church is where I wanted to be when I was 18.I decided to prove Moroni's Promise Moroni 103-5 pg. 529 I have never turned back since. I know that this church is true with all my heart. 

How I live my faith

I am serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints right now in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission.  

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Matt J.T.
We know that Christ's church was a missionary church. But missionary work is not the only reason for such great growth. Everything we learn about the Plan of Happiness and other things makes sense because we have all heard it before when we lived with our Father in Heaven before we came to this life. People are hearing something that they have already heard before, which makes them feel good inside. So its the Spirit and the missionaries that bring that spirit with them. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Matt J.T.
Ancient prophets that lived here on the American continents wrote down the things that our Father in Heaven told them to write. The people here in the Americans, just like in Jerusalem, rejected the prophets and essentially Heavenly Father. So Heavenly Father commanded the propeht Moroni to bury the record to protect it from wicked men who would want to destroy it. So it sat in the ground until the same prophet Moroni appeared to the young boy Joseph Smith and showed him where it was buried. Show more Show less
