Hi I'm Mataio

I'm a Musician, I love my family, I'm a full-time Missionary in England and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Mataio/Matthew Iakopo. I am the Eldest of 5 Children. I am of Samoan heritage, born in New Zealand, raised in Australia and received a mission call to serve in the England, Leeds Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love music and have been singing since I was very young. I love people and have embraced that in the career paths I have chosen. Music, Missionary Work and Life in general are interwoven, as I do what I love I try my best to share it with everyone I meet.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this Gospel, my parents have always been faithful members. I was baptized when I was 8yo. In my teenage years I decided to stop going to church and chose my own path. It came to a point where I was lost and realized I wasn't happy. I reflected on the last time I was truly happy and it was at Church. It took a while but I made my way back. The Gospel has helped me to really understand my potential and purpose in life. As I keep true to the teachings of Christ I see all the wonderful blessings in my life. This Gospel is amazing. It can help anyone who is seeking for truth and eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

By following the example of Jesus Christ and trying to be like Him. Living the simple teachings of the Gospel. Reading the scriptures, praying daily and attending church.
