Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in Utah. I serve the people in San Bernardino California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to do just about anything outdoors. I rock climb, hike, fish, hunt, off-road, bike, ski, and simply enjoy doing anything outdoors. I like sports and am a big fan of Frisbee, golf, and football. I'm a Mormon missionary and enjoy serving people wherever I am. I went to college for a year before I went and intend to go back when I finish my mission. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family and enjoy watching movies and bowling and other fun activities with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have lived the gospel my entire life and have seen and felt the many blessings of it throughout my life. I have read the Book of Mormon and have received a witness from God that it is true and that this is His church. I know that He is there, that Jesus Christ Atoned for us so that we might live with Him again. I know that He listens to our prayers. I know that anything we ask in faith with an intent to do something with the answer we receive he will answer. I know that there is a prophet of God once again on this earth and that by following him we will be following Christ.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I have the great opportunity to share my personal knowledge about God with people all the time. I go out and serve in any way possible. Whether that be by doing yard work, helping someone move, or by teaching them the plan that God has set up for us. I also have the opportunity to teach in church sometimes and am blessed to be able to help others come unto Christ.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes we most certainly do. The Bible is a record of God's dealings with the ancient people of the Middle East. It teaches us His will and goes hand in hand with the Book of Mormon. The Bible teaches us God's plan and what we need to do to follow him, the Book of Mormon clarifies and simplifies the Bible. They are both the word of God and will help you come unto Him.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

It absolutely is. You can know this too by reading the Book of Mormon and by praying to know if it is true. I have done this and know that you will get the same answer I have. That he did appear the the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Show more Show less
