Hi I'm Matt

I'm from Houston, Texas; I love to play basketball and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi im Matt!! I was born and raised in Houston Texas and I absolutely love everything about Texas! I love basketball but I pretty much enjoy all sports and will play anything! I ran Cross Country in high school and absolutely loved it, the sport taught how to work hard and never give up. I am Latino and my family Is originally from the Dominican Republic, but I enjoy Country music and that is definitely not something that you see everyday from a Latino but I like to think of myself of a cowboy. I am an Eagle Scout which is pretty cool so I am glad that I had that opportunity. I love life and I enjoy people in general, I have been called to serve a mission in Guatemala which is pretty awesome and exciting. I am the son of an Olympic bronze medalist in Tae Kwan do! My dad won a bronze in 1992... Pretty much if your a person I enjoy your company.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe without a doubt that this church is true and this is Christs church restored on the earth today, I knelt down and prayed for myself to know of the truth and that discussion has brought me to this church. I want the blessings that God has promised us if we follow his commandments, that may sound selfish but its the truth. And this church is the only church that teaches of moral and clean standards that help me to keep the commandments that Heavenly Father has made for us. Here we can live with our spouses for eternity not just till death do we part and I want to be with my one and only and make that commitment for eternity and also we teach of eternal families and I want that as well. God has promised us so many things and this church teaches us the way and the path to him that is why I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!!!

How I live my faith

I really enjoy serving our church and I think that's were I truly feel the love of Jesus Christ, its enjoyable to feel that satisfaction at the end of service. I am always striving to set the example and to follow the example of others. I am going to be a missionary for our church and give as much as I can to Gods children. If it weren't for missionaries I wouldn't have the faith that I do, an I will forever be grateful to them, and I want to bring that same happiness that me and my family feel to other families.
