Hi I'm Matthew

I grew up in China. I love nature. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an optimist. I believe that negativity and regret can quickly destroy me and waste away my life. People sin, people make mistakes. I know I do. We are imperfect and it is going to happen. If we beat ourselves up and feel sorry for ourselves we are only hurting ourselves further. That's not what I believe God would have us do. His message is one of repentance and forgiveness. All we can do is our best. When we do that there is no reason to feel sorry for ourselves. Christ's Atonement is there for each and every one of us to wash away the sins we will commit. He will help us change.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that everything I am taught in this church is true and good. I have tested it myself and know it to be right. I know that God answers my prayers and knows even the unspoken desires of my heart. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His Church and I am proud to be a part of it. I hope to be a good representative of Christ.

How I live my faith

To me, being a Mormon is to be always improving, always moving forward. It's all about being absolutely honest with myself and with God. I believe that everything I have ever done and everything that has ever happened to me in my life are opportunities for me to learn and grow, even my mistakes and the trials of life. My biggest life goal is to build my own network of zoos and aquariums dedicated to preserving the natural world and making valuable contributions to local societies and cultures. As I have pursued this goal I have tried to always stay true to the values that I hold dear and to always maintain a close relationship with God and my family. I have found that as I have done amazing opportunities have presented themselves and I have been able to constantly move forward in realizing my dreams. God has blessed me and I intend to continue to rely on Him.
