Hi I'm Mateo

Called to serve in the Chile Osorno Mission

About Me

I was born in Cali, Colombia. My parents are converts to the church and I grew up with a strong foundation in the gospel. I came to Canada at the age of 8. I found an interest in music and film during my teenage years. I decided to serve a mission at the age of 18. I have been called to serve in the Chile Osorno mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. I may have been born in the church, but that does not mean I have to be a member if I didn't want to be. It is very clear to me that my life becomes easier when I am obedient to the gospel. Whenever I stray, things get difficult and painful. This to me is an obvious indicator of the truthfulness of the gospel. I have received great joy in living the gospel, and I wish to share that happiness with others.

How I live my faith

My life revolves around Christ. My love for the Savior reaches deep. I've had to go through difficult things in my teenage years, and I can testify that without the gospel and Jesus Christ, I would not be as happy as I am now. I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve a mission. I rejoice in this, as I am most joyful when I am in the service of God.
