Hi I'm Matt

I'm Always Tiert, I'm Tall and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from the beautiful state of Queensland, born and raised in Brisbane. I've got lots of family that are so helpful and caring towards me even when I didn't really appriciate it. They mostly come from New Zealand. Some born in Auckland, some born in Gisborne, so mostly all of the north island, mostly. It's a beautiful place to go, not a sky in the clouds. I love basketball, I stand all amazed at 6 foot 5 and I love my music, anything with heavy bass really. I like long walks on the beach...heaps of long walks...heaps. Nah really I just like to try new things, and give them a try.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church just like my daddy was yo, but I was purely sunday active for the longest time. I finally came to rock bottom, so I decided to live the gospel like I was taught and hey who would have guessed it but it actually works. Turns out that when you truly feel remorse for the mistakes you have made, and ask sincerely for repentance that you can recieve mercy and be forgiven of your past mistakes, funny that aye.

How I live my faith

Well faith is an action word aye, so I live my faith by doing. I'm currently living my faith and putting it all on the table to serve a full-time two year mission in Sydney. It's a crazy place of ups and downs, smiles and frowns. I've never been more tested in my entire life but I have never found more joy then doing what I'm doing.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Matt
hahahaha ok so I had to answer this one, to be simple, no. Not at all. If it wasn't an option I don't think I would be a part of the church. If you were forced to go, it would be dumb. It is a priesthood responsibility which God has asked, but like all his commandments he doesnt force you to do it, you have to exercise your agency and choose to go. You don't lose fellowship or like "rank" or whatever for not going either, todays prophet, Thomas S. Monson didn't serve a mission because he got drafted into the Navy. Show more Show less
