Hi I'm Victor

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Long Beach, CA I'm a school administrator.

About Me

Hi I am Victor. My ancestry is Samoan, Scottish. I am a school administrator. I am married with four children. I enjoy sports such as running and surfing, as well as playing the ukulele. My family came to California from American Samoa in the 1960s.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life. I have a testimony of His gospel and church. I know that as I serve and help others, I am serving Him. I know that He gave his life for us so that we can live again. I am trying to be like Jesus.

How I live my faith

I hold a leadership position in the church that allows me to work directly with the Bishops as a mentor and friend. As I strengthen these leaders, I am helping others. I spend much time training leaders. I also do my best daily to be helpful and kind to everyone I meet, and serve in community and other events that need help with organization or volunteer labor.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

I have served as unpaid clergy for over 21 years. My free time is spent in leadership meetings where we discuss how to help our members and individuals in the community in need. Our payment comes from the blessing of helping others. Show more Show less
