Hi I'm Matthew

I'm from San Diego. I love to hang out at the beach. I'm serving a mission in San Antonio Texas and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the San Diego sunshine. I spent a semester at college in Idaho before my mission and really missed the warmth. Luckily the Lord is sending me to Texas on a mission so ill be nice and hot. I have spent the last two summers working on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska. Okay its colder, but nothing in my life compares to how green and alive Juneau Alaska summers are.

Why I am a Mormon

I have spent my whole life in the church, but did not find my own testimony until I left my family and worked in Alaska without the influence of my parents and having to work on Sundays it was really hard to feel the peace i have felt before in my life. In one summer I read the whole Book of Mormon simply because it was my only source of peace. I prayed more earnestly than i ever had before about the Book of Mormon and felt something I hadn't in my eighteen years as a member. I know that this was the Holy Ghost and because of that expeirence and many similiar that followed I know the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a full time missionary for the church. I spend everyday all day trying to help people come closer to Christ and find joy in there lives.
