Hi I'm Matt Wyman

I'm a student. I'm a techie. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student studying Electrical Engineering. I love theater and have worked with the lighting for a few years. I just returned from Mexico, where I lived for two years. During those two years, I spent almost every day sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with anybody we could! I love Mexico, it's people and especially the tacos!

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the Church, but as I have gotten older I have learned for myself that Jesus Christ suffered for my sins and that He loves me very much. I am so grateful to have this knowledge and I love being able to associate with people that also know this. I know the Book of Mormon is true because I have felt God's love as I've read it and I've received guidance from it.

How I live my faith

I attend weekly meetings where I meet with other Latter Day Saints and learn more about Christ and I get to partake of the Sacrament where I get to renew my covenants with the Lord. I also try to be a good guy and live what I learn. I just served as a missionary for two years in Mexico.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Matt Wyman
Missionaries are completely funded by the missionaries and their families or if they cannot afford to fund it, the Church will help pay for it. Missionaries go because they truly want to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we are willing to pay our own way to do it! Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Matt Wyman
Many people have very negative opinions about the Church mainly based off of other people's uninformed opinions. One of the main reasons is that people erroneously think that the Mormon Church still practices polygamy. This practice was discontinued with divine guidance over 100 years ago. Unfortunately there are other groups that claim to be Mormon that still practice polygamy, but they are not Mormon. Show more Show less
