Hi I'm Matthew Wawro

I was born in Greece, lived in California, I'm serving a mission in Arkansas, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

There is nothing better then being able to go down to the lake on a hot california summer day and go kayaking. Well, maybe playing football could be better, but as long as it keeps me active, I am all for it. And I can't forget to mention that I love food. And being able to serve my mission here in Arkansas, i get to experience some of the country's best food. I will never be able to forget the first time I had fried pork chops, nor do i want to. I love life, I love to have fun, and when I'm doing all this with my family, its what I call paradise.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I have chosen to serve a mission and to be fully active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is because of the Book of Mormon. It is the CONVINCING evidence that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in its fulness by a prophet called of God. Time after time I have felt the Spirit of the Lord bear witness to my heart and to my mind of the truthfulness of this Church, of the Book of Mormon, and of having a modern day prophet. God the ulitmate source of truth has heard my prayers and has answered them and I know with every fiber of my being these things are true.

How I live my faith

I have been privelaged to serve a volunteer mission for the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints. Without a doubt it has been the best decision I have made in my life so far. Everyday I get to share my testimony of Jesus Christ with many wonderful people. For two years all my time and attention is centered around others and their needs. Never have i found more happiness in my life then serving my fellow brothers and sisters!
