Hi I'm Elder Taumoe'anga
I'm from a very poor family in Tonga(Faleloa, Ha'apai), who's been through life's toughest struggles, yet been blessed with god's most tendered mercies. Although I'm poor, this gospel is what makes me rich and happy. Rugby and Football are my hobbies. My family is what keeps me Motivated and I love each and everyone of them. I'm a god fearing man, and I live and die for his will and glory. "Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever. Therefore, let us glory, yea, we will glory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel."
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I choose to follow Christ and his teachings and I know sincerely that this is his true restored church here on earth today. I testify that this gospel is the only one that provides everlasting happiness and eternal families. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that he was crucified on the cross for and behalf of all humanity's sins, so that we may all be saved, and I am forever grateful for his infinite love and atoning sacrifice. I testify of the prophet Joseph Smith that he is a true prophet of god and through his unshakable faith overcoming many trials and tribulations he was able to restore the gospel in these latter days. And that from Joseph Smith to Thomas S. Monson are true prophets of god called to help lead and guide us. I conclude with a firm testimony of the Book Of Mormon that I know without the slightest of doubt, The Book Of Mormon is true and is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that along side with the bible as far as it's translated correctly that they are true word of god. I know that if you read The Book Of Mormon with a strong desire, humble heart, and real intent that the spirit of god will manifest unto you the truthfulness of the book and it's gospel as it did for me. I invite you, not to take my word for it, but to seek for yourself, diligently, and prayerfully, that god may fill your hearts with his truths as he did mines.
How I live my faith
I was called to be a teacher to the primary kids in my ward ages 10-11 and have gained so much spiritually through this experience including exercising my faith and learning from these innocent children of god. Other than that, I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and also becoming a full time missionary of the church, serving the people of Houston, Texas.
