About Me

I am 20 years old. I am currently serving as a missionary for the church in Switzerland. I love it, I love being able to share with others what I believe, and especially in a country as beautiful and cultural as Switzerland. I will be serving for a period of 2 years. before my mission I was a pretty normal lad. I lived in Northampton, England, and studied Design, Physics and Photography. In my spare time I liked to have a laugh with my friends, play a little rugby, and eat! see there's nothing to special!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well to begin with I will say that I was brought up in this religion, my parents were converts, and I naturally went with them to church every week, but that doesn't mean that I go to church just because it is tradition; I do it because I know it to be true. I have read and studied, the bible and the book of Mormon, and I have done what is taught in both of them, to pray and ask god. And I have received my answer from god, he speaks to us, and will always speak to us. I know this church to be the true church of god.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a missionary in Switzerland for 2 years, helping others see why I love this religion! other ways I live my religion is that I go to church every Sunday, I keep the commandments given to us by god, and I try to follow the example that Jesus Christ gave to us.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Matt
We have this as a commandment from God, not to smoke, drink tea, coffee, alcohol, and not to take illegal drugs. This commandment was given to a Prophet in the early 1800's. We now know today that these substances are addictive and harmful. We don't take them because they are harmful to us, and God has commanded us to take care of our bodies. Many people cant see the harm in drinking tee or coffee, or even a glass of red wine each day. For me the reason why I follow this commandment, is because it has been proven to be beneficial to my health, yes, but more importantly because our God had commanded us through a Prophet that we should not partake of these substances.
