Hi I'm Matthew Robert Earl Leitch

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father, a son, a brother, an uncle and a friend. I grew up in Canada, I have served a mission and lived in Salt Lake City Utah and currently reside in Australia with my wife and 3 children. I have spent many years within the sales industry but recently have chosen a different career path and I am soon to be studying at USQ in the Bachelor of Education program. I believe in leading a healthy life and train daily in the gym. I love sports, camping and the great outdoors and I love nature and all of Gods creations.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and was baptized when I was 9 years old in New Brunswick Canada. In my teenage years I was active in the church and in my faith but made many good and many bad choices in which I am both grateful and regretful for. When I was 20 after a few years of being involved in immoral activities and in the party scene one night I came home and realized how unhappy I was. I had a strong feeling to hit my knees, as I prayed and asked what the Lord wanted me to do I heard someone talking to me as if they were standing over my shoulder saying "you need to prepare to serve a mission". I never asked about going on a mission or really thought about it but I did what I was told and ended up serving an honorable mission in Salt Lake City, Utah. Like everyone in this life I have and still make mistakes on a day to day basis but the one thing that gets me through is my faith in the Lord and my savior Jesus Christ. I know God answers prayers and that he forgives if we but humble ourselves and ask! My testimony is simple, God lives and loves us and wants us to all be able to return to his presence. The book of mormon is true, Joseph smith was a prophet of God and Jesus Christ lived and died so that we could be forgiven and rose again that we might be able to as well. THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS is the Lords church. My name is Matthew Robert Earl Leitch and I am a MORMON!

How I live my faith

I have served a ward music director, ward missionary, first councilor in the stake young mens presidency and I currently serve in the Elders quorum presidency in my ward.
