Hi I'm Matt

I'm a missionary in Ohio, and a Mormon

About Me

I love to play sports. especially water polo, and basketball, but i love being a missionary more. Being able to help others each day is the greatest feeling and doing it every day is a blessing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. As a teenager I had many doubts about the things that i now know to be true, but i had some wonderful family members and others in my life who challenged me to find out for myself if the church, and the Book of Mormon were indeed true. After reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it I got my answer and knew it was true.

How I live my faith

Each day I got out and teach people about the wonderful truths that have been brought back to us in these times. I love teaching people that their Heavenly Father loves them and that we are all his children, i love to teach about where we came from and why we are here on earth. I live my faith each day by just trying to be the best example i can be, and by following Jesus Christ.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Matt
No, Young men are expected to because it is a commandment from God. Christ gave the commandment to spread the gospel, therefore as members in his church we respond diligently to that call. Being a missionary I can say that the blessings definantly outweigh the sacrafice. Some young men choose to not serve a mission and miss an incredible life changing experience, others may not be able to do so because of health or other problems. Young women are encouraged to serve as well, and the many that do recieve great blessings from it. Show more Show less
