Hi I'm Matt Harper

I'm serving the best two years in the Ohio Cleveland mission. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports. I love the outdoors of Idaho. I like to go wake boarding, snowboarding, hiking, four wheeling, and snowmobiling. I have attended college at Utah State University for a year. I have 4 sisters, and 0 brothers. I am representing the Lord in Cleveland Ohio for two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel has brought me true happiness in my life. It is comforting to know where I come from, why I am here on this earth now, and where I go when I die. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to repent of my wrong-doings. I have a testimony of a living prophet on this earth today and am so grateful for his example and for his teachings. I love that I can be with my family forever through the plan of happiness. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for all the sins of the world and that he loves each one of us on this earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by doing service for others and inviting people to come unto Christ. I love to read the Book of Mormon and study its teachings. My family has been a great example in helping me to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Matt Harper
Jesus Christ knows and loves each one of us. He loves us so much that he wanted us all to find happiness in this life, and that happiness comes through living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because he suffered for all of our sins and sufferings in the Garden of Gethsemane and because of his death on the cross, we can all repent, be baptized and receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and become clean. As we have Faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, he can heal us. During his mortal ministry those who touched the hem of his garment were made whole. As we apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ into our lives it can fully heal us. Through the Atonement, we can return to live with our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
