Hi I'm Krystal

I'm from Tonga. I'm in Alabama.I'm music crazy.I'm LOUD! I'm a dancer. I fell in love with Alabama football and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

About me... Well I'm number two in a family of five children.I love to laugh, joke and make people happy. Dancing was what I did for a job. Dancing and Being on stage in front of a large crowd that appreciates culture or performing on long canoes makes me appreciate the dances and cultures my heavenly father has given me. I grew up in Vava'u. It's a little Island in the Kingdom of Tonga.There, I learned to work, learned respect, learned culture and learned about God. In Tonga, almost everyone is Christian. Stores close on Sundays. Everyone goes to church. You wake up most mornings to church bells and sermons heard throughout the Island.It's a beautiful sound. I was raised a Latter Day Saint and loved the gospel. Just like everyone else I've grown to make my own decisions, Know God for myself and develop my own personal relationship with him. That's what's most important to me. Later on I went to Hawaii to try to further education but now, life is on hold while I'm here in Sweet home Alabama sharing a part of life with my brothers and sisters. Life is WONDERFUL!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because the feelings I get when I go to church or read from the scriptures or listen to teachings of living prophets are rare and I cannot find it anywhere else. I love that whooosh feeling that you get from feeling the spirit testifying to you of truths and Heavenly Father's love.

How I live my faith

Making people happy is what I love to do! That's the best way I share my faith...SMILE!

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Krystal
In John 3:5 in the New testament, The Savior taught that "except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" This pretty much is stating that no one can enter into the kingdom of God unless they have been baptized. What happens to those good people who has never heard of Christ? For example, I have a lot of deceased ancestors in Tonga who has never been baptized but were good people. Is it fair to send them to Hell if they never had the opportunity to even hear of Christ? I believe that God loves ALL of his children therefore he provides a way to try to save as many of his children that will let him. That's why proxy Baptism is needed. To have people baptized on behalf of their ancestors who didn't have the chance in mortality. Proxy Baptism isn't a new thing. It's something that was practiced even in Biblical time. (1Corinthians 15:29) "Else What shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? " Show more Show less
