Hi I'm Elder Matthews

I grew up in the middle of Illinois. I am serving as a Missionary for the LDS church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4 children, all being raised by my mom and dad our entire lives. I enjoy reading, hunting, fishing, the outdoors, and giving service in my free time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is it's founder. This is the only church on earth today that is set up exactly like the one that the Savior started during his mortal ministry. I know that He was the perfect example, and that the key to true exaltation is found in heeding His commandments. I have gone to the Lord in prayer and pleaded with Him to receive confirmation that following this church was the path He wanted me to follow, and if it would lead me back to Him. I received my answer, and I know you can too. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

As I've grown up being a Mormon, I have served various callings in my ward and stake, such as leadership positions in our young mens group, Youth Family History Consultant, and Ward Missionary. I have helped out the fellow members of my church and their families over the years in as many ways as I can, doing yardwork or helping them move, providing meals and visiting those in need of comfort. Right now I'm in the Washington Vancouver area serving a mission for the church.
