Hi I'm Larry

I grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am a US Army Chaplain. I'm a Mormon'

About Me

Aloha! I am from Hawaii. I have an eternal family. I love my family and I am thankful for my savior Jesus Christ. I appreciate, cherish and value my relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I love to exercise. My hobbie is my family......being a dad and husband. I enjoy sports and enjoying learning about people and thier life story. I served a full-time mission to Los-Angeles California. I have expereienced and continue to expereience the joys and challenges of life. I have been fortunate to serve in the U.S Army. I am serving in the Army Reserve as a Chaplain. My prayer is that I can learn to live more like my Heavenly Father and become a better person.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a latter-day saint (Mormon) my whole life. My mother is from Samoa and she was raised in American Samoa and Hawaii in the LDS faith. My mom's dad is from American Samoa and remained a London Methodist (LMS) for the duration of his earthly life. My mom's mother is from Western Samoa she converted to the LDS faith as a young lady in her village of Saupaitea. The missionaries from the Mormon church brought the message of the restored gospel to her. She raised nine children in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and I am a happy recipient of that gospel message.

How I live my faith

I serve my local community volunteering. In my local LDS congregation I serve in the Stake High Council. I strive to do my home teaching which is a priesthood assignment where I am assigned two or three families to care for, serve and share a monthly message that is a spiritual message that comes out of our monthly magazine called the Ensign. This message is given each month from a member of the First Presidency. Our prophet or one of his counselors. It is a message that uplifts and gives hope and courage to the families we visit and watch over.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

I absolutely beleive that Thomas S Monson is Gods prophet on the earth today. Like Moses he is called of God by the authority of the priesthood. From scriptures both in the Old and New Testament God followed a pattern of revealing his word to prophets. I know he follows that pattern today. Show more Show less
