Hi I'm Matthew Osborne

I grew up in Lehi, Utah. I am serving in the Taiwan Taizhong (taichung) Mission and California Ventura Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like running, programming, eating and sleeping, soccer, Chinese culture, footbag, and math/puzzles.

Why I am a Mormon

Depression happens to everyone. Even people living within the gospel, but when you are devoted to the gospel and continue to pray and read your scriptures for help, you will be able to recover. The Atonement is what it is all about. Jesus suffered for not only our sins, but also for our sickness and infirmities. He is completely empathetic with us and as we rely on him, we will be comforted by him. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that he went through pain and suffering unimaginable for us, that he died on the cross for us and that he is still here for us. I love my Father in Heaven for creating this Plan of Happiness for us and for all the blessings that I have received from him. I have a testimony of this church and of the light it brings to us when we live it. I have a testimony of prayer, that when we are earnestly asking our Heavenly Father for grace, comfort, advice, help or relief, he will act on our behalf. He will send angels to help us and he will give us the strength we need to keep going. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I am serving in the California Ventura Mission waiting for my visa to theTaiwan Taichung mission and am learning Chinese, how to study and teach the Gospel, how to feel the promptings of the Spirit and helping others recieve the restored Gospel.
