Hi I'm Matthew Cranford

I speak mandarin, I like facial hair, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm serving a full time mission for the Church. I am speaking Mandarin Chinese and I'm so excited to serve. I gave up school and dating for a few years so that I can help others come unto Christ and enjoy the power and blessings that I have recieved from the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church but it wasn't until I was about 15 years old that I really started trying to live the Gospel and gain a witness of its truth for myself. I prayed for a long time to know and eventually Heavenly Father answered my prayers. I know that prayer is a real connection that we can use to communicate with our Father. I have sinced gained a testimony of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. Every time I read it, I know that a young boy could not have written that book. I know that regardless if we are happy or going through a rough patch in this life, that we can overcome anything with the Gospel of Jesus Chirst. Jesus Christ has been my best friend and I am very blessed that I have had this Gospel thorugh my whole life.

How I live my faith

Well.. Im serving a mission. I work all day, doing nothing but trying to find and help people. It's a full time thing and it doesn't just end at 5:00 p.m. I am so happy to be here and work hard.
