Hi I'm Matt Zavoral

I'm from Sacramento, California. I LOVE my family,skim boarding and all other sports. I'm currently a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up playing a LOT of sports; basketball, volleyball, football, baseball, etc. I love all of them and I hope to play at Stanford or BYU when I'm back! I was the Director of Marketing for a nonprofit organization called Kids Helping Kids and helped raise $200,000 to help children both locally and globally. I love my family so much, and can't wait to see them after my service as a missionary! I'm a big alternative/folk/rock fan and love to sing and make music myself. If I had one wish, I would wish to just laze away the day at the beach. Just surfing, skim boarding, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because of the Spirit that I feel here. There is no other place or thing in the world that has brought me the peace that this Gospel brings. Thanks to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I KNOW that families can be together forever. Since being on my mission, I have lost two Grandmothers, but I KNOW that I will be able to see them again. I know that our Savior's love is so real. He helps us everyday. He knows exactly how we feel. He has been there before. It is amazing being able to go through this life, knowing that there is someone behind us, helping us everyday.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving as a Spanish Missionary in Atlanta, Georgia! I love the church so much, and love teaching. It is such an amazing thing, being able to talk to people about Jesus Christ. There is nothing else in the world that I would rather be doing. I love getting involved and planning activities for the youth of the church. My parents have been working in various youth organization callings for a long time, so I have had no shortage of experience helping them and getting ideas!
