Hi I'm Matthew Hendrix

I grew up in Texas. I enjoy playing basketball and other sports. I will be serving a 2 year mission for the church. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing basketball, football, and golf both competitively and for fun. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I will be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Chile Santiago South mission. I report to the Mexico City MTC on August 2nd. After my mission, I will attend Utah Valley University in the fall of 2018.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who has given me the greatest opportunity to live here on this earth. I know that I have a Savior who payed the ultimate price on the cross so that I, an imperfect human being, can return to live with my Heavenly Father one day. I have a firm belief that Joseph Smith restored the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that The Book of Mormon is true. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. If it wasn't, there would be no possible way that I would be preparing to serve a mission for two years.

How I live my faith

I wear my beliefs on my sleeves. All of my friends know and are aware of my beliefs and the way I live my life. I truly do my best to be the best person that I can be to my parents and friends, and in doing so, I make a positive impact on the people around me.
