Hi I'm Matthew

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in the Illinois Chicago Mission

About Me

What I really like to do is read books. Thats really my number one thing to do. Just like any other teenage guy i love food and play video games. I am a certified lifeguard complete with a card and everything. Im also an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was about 6 years old I was taken from the care of my biological mother because her boyfriend was abusive and thats all I'll say about that. I went to a couple of different homes then I was placed in foster care a short time later. That's when I came to be with a family who goes to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Before then I really didnt think too much about religion so when I came to this church I instantly felt something tell me that this was right. So when I turned 8 I was eager to be baptized into the true church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything I do not just when I go to church on Sunday. I am now a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in the Illinois Chicago Mission and i am absolutely loving it here!
