Hi I'm Matt

I from Massachusetts. I went to a Catholic high school. I'm 18 years old and I'm serving in the Vancouver Canada Mission.

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town just outside Boston. I was really blessed to have a really different high school experience. I don't know the exact reasons why I decided to go to a Catholic high school but I realize now that God led me there. Each day I would start the day with seminary, and then have a Catholic scripture class. This opportunity challenged me to really find out for myself what was the truth. Just as Joseph Smith experienced, I needed to know which faith and which doctrine would bring me closer to Jesus Christ. After praying about it, I received my answer that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's kingdom on the earth today and the doctrines are pure and true! It's why I am here serving a mission! We all have doubts, fears, and concerns but if we turn to the source of all truth, Heavenly Father, I know he will answer our prayers.

Why I am a Mormon

It has brought me so much happiness and direction in my life! It has powerful answers for the questions of the soul, Where we come from? Why we are here? Where we are going? I love the emphasis on family and that I can be with my family for eternity! How awesome is that?! We can be with the people that give us the most joy and happiness here on earth, forever! Being Mormon isn't always easy, at times I have felt alone or lost, the gospel has been my comforter and allowed me to see how important it is to keep believing and grow in my faith. Attending a Catholic school has given me another perspective of Jesus Christ and strengthened my testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has the fullness of His gospel.

How I live my faith

Being able to serve a mission has been one of the greatest blessings of my life! When you see someone else come unto Christ, you realize how much Christ has done for you. I try to talk with everyone about how great it is to be Mormon and the happiness that the gospel brings as you live it's principles. When you realize how blessed you have been, you want to share it with everyone and help them come unto Christ as well!
