Hi I'm Elder Matt Dalley

I am called to serve in the England London mission. I have seven siblings me being number six. Five girls and three boys.

About Me

I am 19 years old, I'm a missionary serving in the England London Mission. I am a certified auto mechanic back home and love to look at and help others with their cars! I love to go golfing with my dad and younger brother. If I'm with my friends you will probably find me either close to a river or pool or putting another log on a camp fire. I love to be with my friends and always having a laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

There is always a time in your life whether it be in your teens or whether it be later on. No matter when it is we have to find out why we do the things that we do. I decided when I was 17 and on that I wanted to know why I was going to church with my family. Other than the part of my parents having me go every Sunday. In the Introduction to The Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ, it tells of the last prophet who wrote in the book gives everyone a challenge. The challenge being to read the book and ask God if it is not true. I took this challenge. And when I did it and followed the standards faithfully I saw how much better my life was than some of my friends who didn't live the standards. How they weren't truly happy as they were in previous years.

How I live my faith

As of August 2015 I left my family, friends, and hobbies to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am a representative of Jesus Christ. I wake up ever morning at 6:29, start the day off with a prayer giving thanks for all that I have and that he has given me. As a missionary I teach people and talk to them about what the Gospel of Jesus Christ means to them. I help them strengthen their faith. As missionaries we are to help strengthen and uplift others in their faith. We want everyone to see the good that comes from the Gospel and through the Book of Mormon. I live my faith by literally representative of Jesus Christ, I strive to do the things that he would do, repent when needed and change my actions.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Elder Matt Dalley
President Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet today. However the quorum of the Twelve Apostles are called to be Prophets, Seers, and Revelators. But the prophet only has the power receive revelation for the church. But he can authorize other apostles to do different things for him. Show more Show less
