Hi I'm Mateo Rios

I'm a Mormon. I was born in LA California, I like to play volleyball and golf.

About Me

Well I like to move around a lot. I never like to live any where for to long. I like to play volleyball and golf. As well as video games and soccer. My tallents consist of drawing and painting, playing the guitar and many other instruments. I love to be in a croud of laughter so I like to entertain if someone else isn't already doing so. I have a family of 8 that is 2 parents of corse and 5 sisters. I love my family and love to be around my nieces and nephew. I have family all over the world. In places like England, Canada and Germany. My mothers side of the family is all European and my fathers side is Hispanic but DNA wise brazilian. I like to camp and do out door things on the week ends as well as many other fun activities.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born in the church and have remained in the church. I just rode on my parents testimony the whole way through up untill I turned 16 and prayed for my self. Now I'm living the gospel because I prayed and recieved confermation that this was the complete church of Christ. What I mean is, is that all churches have truth but just not all of it. I have gone to many other churches with friends but they never felt quite the same. The people were nice but there was just something missing. So I decided to test what I have been taught and prayed and applied the pricables to my life. Prayer and study is a big thing for me now. Reading the Bible right along side the Book of Mormon is apart of my everyday life. I know that some times the lord gives you trials but if you endure to the end and try your best and repent of your sins all the way than your reward will be great. Well I guess the real bottom line why I am a Mormon is because the Holy Ghost testified unto me that Jesus is our savior and Joseph Smith was a true prophet and the Lords church is back on the earth once more.

How I live my faith

I live my faith according to what makes me feel happy and safe. I accept church callings that they give me and do them to my fullest. I do what I can and let God do the rest because I'm not perfect and I need Gods help at all times in my life. I help others when I can or if I can't I'll see if someone else close by can. Thats a big thing is helping others because God is love and he wants us to love everyone and one way of showing God that I love him I show others I love them. Its not an easy task but if it were I don't think I would grow from anythng than.
