Hi I'm Matt Flake

I grew up in Kaysville, Utah, I have been called to serve in the Maceio, Brazil mission, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a relaxed and fun person. I really enjoy sports and being active. I played football in high school and received high honors and a 4.0. I have been called to serve in the Maceio, Brazil mission and I am very excited to share the gospel and serve the Lord in this great place.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel gives me direction and a purpose in life. With the gospel I can become something greater. I have been a Mormon for my entire life, I grew up living the gospel and just figured it was what everybody did. By the time I reached High School I realized that there are some people who do not share the same values as I did and I watched some turn away from what they had been taught and what they had lived their entire life. I recognized these people had lost the happiness that they had when they were living the gospel. The gospel brings happiness and comfort. As I have read the Book of Mormon, I know it is true because of the peace it brings when I read it. In my own life when I find myself not doing as well as I should be and make an effort to make myself better I truly feel the power of the gospel and the strength it gives me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and following the principles it teaches every day. I am a home teacher and occasionally I would teach my fellow members in many different settings. I live my faith by trying my best everyday of the week and trying to be a good example to those around me. As of right now I am living my faith by serving a full-time mission where I will teach and share the gospel and my faith with the people of Maceio, Brazil.
