Hi I'm Matt

I love my family, trombone, soccer, video games, and i'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a 20 year old guy, I love the old classic video games along with most of the new. I love doing anything that gets adrenaline pumping like soccer or rock climbing. I play trombone and am learning other instruments because music is one of my passions. I'm a total nerd especially with Doctor Who. I love science and want to continue and study in the health field. I love Ballroom dancing, and just being with people. I Love Tag and hide and go seek.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family and as I grew up I experienced the blessings of the gospel but never really new for myself. When I went on my mission I didn't know that Jesus Christ had died for me, but I did believe it. Since being on my mission I have had ample opportunity to study the words of Christ. I was greatly affected by a question in one of the study tools we have and it caused me to look in the book of Mormon for an answer which I received. That is how I know Jesus Christ is my savior. From there I have received witness after witness about how this is God's plan for us and this Church has that same priesthood authority that Jesus Christ himself gave to the apostle Peter. I now know this is Christ's Church established on the earth once again through the Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

Currently I'm serving as a missionary in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. Before this I simply had a belief in Christ but as I've been out here I learned that Jesus Christ was resurrected. I do my best to be friends with all of God's children and serve where I can. I hope to get into some degree where I can constantly be helping people to progress in life. I take the sacrament (the bread and water) weekly to renew the promises I made to God at baptism. I go to the temple to get as close as I can to God in this life.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Matt
God has asked us to build his kingdom on earth so we give a tenth of our income. In exchange we get to bring the gospel to numerous places because with the funds we create chuches and temples and so on to progress the work of the lord. In essence we give a little so others can have the gospel in their lives to. Show more Show less
