Hi I'm Matt

I was born and raised in Utah. I'm a Computer Science major. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name's Matt. I am currently serving in the best mission in the world, the Philippines Tacloban Mission. I'm a Computer Science Major at Brigham Young University. I'm proficient in 4 languages, not including programming languages (of which I know about 3). I'm the oldest of 6 kids and I absolutely love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I chose to be. I was raised in a very active Mormon family and so it has had a big impact on my life. But I'm not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because my parents are, I'm a member because I found out for my self that this church is true. When I teach people about the Gospel I tell them how important it is to know for themselves and I can promise them that they will know if they ask God because I did it! I got on my knees and prayed to God and He told me that this is His church. I am so thankful for that answer to my question because it has helped shape my life for the better. I especially know that The Book of Mormon is true, that it came from God to help give us direction in our lives today. I've had multiple times that I've had a difficult time in my life and I was able to turn to The Book of Mormon and get help. I know that this church is true and I won't ever leave it!

How I live my faith

I am currently living my dream of being a full-time missionary for the Church. Everywhere I go I get to meet someone new who I can share the gospel with. I absolutely love this work, especially when I get to see the happiness that people feel by accepting the Gospel.
