Hi I'm Matias

I love to play soccer and do exercise. I grew up in Argentina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert to the LDS church, baptized on April, 2007. I love to get active and do exercise, play soccer (favorite sport) with buddies and friends. I have a big interest in anything that has to do with technology, which is why i want to major in Information Technology when i start going to college. I want to become a computer hardware engineer. I speak both Spanish and English really well, and i want to continue learning German which i have a big interest on as a language. As a hobby i like going to Gold's Gym and also play Xbox.

Why I am a Mormon

When i first got converted, because of not having enough interest, i became inactive in the Church. Life started to get harder and just when everything seemed to get worse, i remembered the words of members, saying that the Gospel is to feel joy and happiness. I started to pursue that happiness by becoming active again and by reading the Book of Mormon. My testimony grew and i started to know that i was in the true church. I never fell again in my faith and know i never will. I know God lives, as well as his son Jesus Christ in these days.

How I live my faith

Right now i'm preparing to go on a Mission. My calling has been to the Everett Washington mission and i am glad to serve my fellow men there. I had a calling to be an Assistant Scoutmaster Leader in my ward and have gone with the boys on several camp outs. I really loved to be with them. They are like my brothers because i used to be with them before i became a leader myself. I have been able to serve my Scoutmaster really well and go to camp outs where leaders where needed greatly in order for all of the scouts to go.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

Matias
The Book of Mormon testifies about Jesus Christ and his ministry for the people who lived in the Americas. It is named after Mormon, who was the ancient prophet who wrote it around 400 AD. Just like the Bible talks about what happened in the middle east, the Book of Mormon talks about the people in the Americas. The Book of Mormon also contains the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it testifies of him and shows the Bible to be the word of God. Show more Show less
