Hi I'm Ryan Matthews

I was born in Utah and raised in Burley Idaho. Im a country boy. Im serving in the Jamaica Kingston Mission. Im a Mormon.

About Me

Hi my name is Ryan, I'm 20 years old and I'm serving in the Jamaica Kingston Mission. When I come home I plan on going into college (probably BYU Idaho) to go into either business or engineering. I'm an eagle scout and I love being outdoors, I love to hunt, camp, snowboard, ride four wheelers. Pretty much anything outdoors!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I believe that the LDS church is the only true church with the fullness of the restored gospel. I believe that families can be together forever, and that through the atonement all mankind can be saved. I believe that we are sons and daughters of our heavenly father and that he loves us and wants us to return to him and if we follow him and keep his commandments we can return to him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying every day to become more like my savior Jesus Christ and to serve others the best way I can. I attend all of my church meetings and try to magnify my callings. I had a experience in high school where my friend almost died in an accident. The incident changed my life forever and I know that my friend lives because of the Priesthood of God. I know that the Priesthood is real, and because of that experience I will always live my life in such a way that I will be worthy of the Priesthood. As ive served on my mission ive witnessed miracles happen in my life and in the lives of others. I live my faith by striving to always be a "Priesthood Man"
