Hi I'm Tebaraoi.

I grew up in Kiribati. I joined the church when i was 14. I'm serving my mission in St. George. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love fishing in the ocean and watching movies with my sister. I love to hang out with my friends and have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 7 years old, my Dad died so my Dad's brother adopted me and my younger sister. He's a Mormon so I start taking the discussions with the missionaries and learned about new things that I didn't know before. I really enjoyed the lessons and made new friends at church. I went to a church high school and I really enjoyed those moments with my new friends in school and church. I learned different things from each one of them and they made a big difference in my life. I'm glad that I have good friends that really care for me and understand my situation. My uncle raised me the way I should be and set a great example for me.

How I live my faith

I love to participate in church activities and to make new friends in church. I just realize how blessed I am to be a part of Jesus Christ's church. I can feel the love the Savior has for me and for the experiences and decisions that I will never regret.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

I learned that no matter what situation or whatever problems we are going through in life we can turn to Jesus Christ by exercising our faith in Him through learning His restored gospel. You can feel the love He has for you. Because of Him, we can have the happiness we deserve not just in this life but for our eternal happiness. He's there with us through our journey.
