Hi I'm Matthus

I'm from Utah, I'm swimmer, I love to hike, and I am a lds missionary. I am serving in Ohio. I plan to study medicine after it.

About Me

My parents were was divorced when I was young. My mom does not agree with the church and my dad is inactive. Fortunately my grandparents and extended family have been an important part of me becoming active in the church. The two others that helped me along with my family is my dentist and my bishop. In all honesty I do not think I would be ready for my mission if it wasn't for both of them. Now I am serving my mission in Cleveland, Ohio. Alot of people think I am crazy serving a mission, because I want to be a cardio sergeon. I am the first young man to serve a full time mission in my family, I hear about every few weeks the impact of my decision to serve a mission has had in my families' life.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was raised with the church by my dad, I became truly active at the age of 17. The reason was that seeing my family that are active have such happiness that I became jealous. Then I went out of my way to be active and fallowing my covenants. Now I am filled with many blessings and joys that I can't see living without.

How I live my faith

I assist in teaching eleven year-olds at church as well as assisting with the eleven year old scouts. But the biggest way I serving as a missionary in the Ohio Cleveland Mission. I love everything that this gospel brings to everyone, and I do enjoy this wonderful opportunity to share this gospel.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Our boddies are made in God's image, so we should take care of them.When we receive the gift of the holy ghost we need to have purity, because no uncleen thing be in his presence. For that reason we shoud try our best to remain pure, but when we can't we should rely on the Lord. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to act in God's name for performing ordinances of God (blessings, baptisms, ect.). also it is necessary to have the priesthood to lead the people for without it is like the aircraft towers directing the planes without any form of mass communication. The priest hood is only used for the benefit of others. with that authority we must live worthy of so we don't abuse that privilege. baptisms without the priesthood is like receiving a speeding ticket from a ice cream man, or having a major medical surgery by some random person down the street that is not a surgeon.
