Hi I'm Matiss

I love sports, movies and having fun. I just finished high school and I'm getting ready to go on a mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 19 years old, born in the church. My parents were the church pioneers in Latvia. I love playing different kinds of sports and spending time with my friends. I studied in the IB program during high school. I am very interested in cars as well as movies. I love to go to the theatre and see plays. I was in the junior national volleyball team of Latvia and have competed in various kids of tournaments even at international level. In summers I love swimming and playing beach volleyball. I have been admitted to university but before that I am going on a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel truly brings peace and happiness in my life. Whenever I have hardships or trouble, the gospel provides peace to my mind and a way to escape my troubles. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and by living according to the standards and principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I feel this love stronger than ever before. When I am obedient, the Lord is able to bless me, so I strive to become perfectly obedient in order to enjoy all of the blessing the Lord pours over me. This church is the true church of Jesus Christ. It is build upon the principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is another testimony of Jesus Christ and bless my life every day. Heavenly Father loves us with incomprehensible love and wants each and every one of us to feel this love and to return back to Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating actively in the church and studying as much as I can. I try to eat and live healthily especially by avoiding alcohol, tobacco and other harming substances. I try to do my best in my calling as the Sunday School teacher for new members and investigators. I go to the temple as often as I can. I have accepted a calling to serve a mission in England. I try to be more like Christ and learn to love other people as He did. He is my perfect example and I do everything to become more like Him.
