Hi I'm Matt

I grew up in California mostly, but currently live in Arizona. I am serving my mission in Mesa. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I currently am serving my mission here in Mesa, Arizona! I came out soon after I graduated from high school and am glad to be here. I love teaching people about Christ, and helping them grow closer to him when I work in harmony with my companion and the Spirit. Before my mission I worked as a lifeguard, smoothie maker, and pizza maker at different times in order to save money. I also really like to skateboard and go to concerts in my free time as well as hang out with friends. I plan on continuing to do these things after my time as a missionary. I am accepted to BYU Provo and plan on attending in 2019!

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a Mormon, but that doesn't mean I have never wondered about the truth. As I got into high school there came I time when I had to find out for myself if what my parents had taught me was true, or not. I took the time to study the scriptures, go to church and all other activities, fulfill my priesthood duties, and pray diligently to know for myself if these things were true. Eventually I came to the conclusion that it was. I am a Mormon for many reasons, but the simplest and most encompassing is that I can not deny the faith I have of Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon, and the restored church on the Earth today. I am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being here serving a full time mission! I have decided to dedicate myself to the work of the Lord for two whole years in order to help bring others the same peace, happiness, and love I have felt as I have come closer to the Lord. Missions are hard, but it is a blessing to be able to share my testimony with every one I come into contact with. I live my faith by trying to be like Christ. I am not perfect, but I try to follow His example each and every day so that when the time comes I can return to live with Him and my Heavenly Father.
