Hi I'm Matthew

I was born in Utah and have lived in California and Texas. I love the outdoors and mountain biking.

About Me

I love learning about the world around me. I have been able to work with people from around the world and work with them to help others in need. I am the second oldest child in my family. I love my family and spending time with my friends. I love to go camping and backpacking. I love to spend time in nature and like to do take photos.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a Mormon family. I knew that there was a god but never furthered my knowledge until I was compelled to do so. I was mountain biking in the mountains of Utah when I was caught in some really bad weather. I was stuck in a hale storm with lightning at the top of a mountain. I had no way of getting help and was in danger since I couldn't go in anywhere in the clay. I prayed for help to make it off the top of that mountain and to know if he was really there. I was able to find help and make it of the top of that mountain. I almost suffered from hypothermia among other things but with the helps of those who came to the rescue I was able to make it down alive and well. I know as I continue to learn of Christ and follow in his ways that I have been blessed. I know that he has the power to heal us and save us. I know that he knows us and that he wants us to do our best. I know that Christ lives and payed the ultimate price so that I could live with my father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I am about to go on a church mission to Europe. I love working with my friends at church and creating fun ways for us to learn about each other and connect. I love planning activities and seeing people come out for them because they are passionate about the sport or hobby. I love helping the elderly and love to make visits to let them them that I care. I love to go to youth activities and learn and build friendships. I love being able to share my belief in Christ and love to help others find hope in peace in this world.
