Hi I'm Jonas

I grew up in Fiji Islands. I am enjoying life. I'm a Mormorn.

About Me

I work as an accountant. I like travelling. I am a dad with teenager kids. Have a busy family life and trying to balance all things in life. I had opportunity to work with so many different types of people which has helped me in my day to day life. I continue to enjoy my life and be happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a christian (Methodist) and so I had the knowlodge of basic christian beliefs. It was not till I met two Mormon missionaries who were teaching my cousin about the Plan of Salvation (where did I come from, why I am here on earth and where will I go after I die). I had a purpose in life and I have principles that i belief and follow. This has not only blessed my life but my families too.

How I live my faith

I have been able work with all groups of people been in the church. I had the great opportunity to see the spiritual and temporal well being of people while I was in Fiji Islands. I also served as a full time missionary in Singapore and India and was able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with so many people who were Christians and of other religions. Currently I work with youths and young single adults and seeing their trials and helping them through programs and councils to go forward. Monthly me and another brother go and visit atleast 5 familes in our church and help and teach them and also learn from them. Recently we cleaned a senior single sisters backyard. We love and enjoy this work.

What is the priesthood?

Jonas
The priesthood is the authority to act in God’s name. The same priesthood authority that existed in the original Church established by Jesus Christ exists in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today. The Church is directed and led through this authority. All male members of the Church who are prepared receive the priesthood in order to help lead the Church and serve Heavenly Father’s children. A man with the priesthood might serve in some of the following ways ■Leading congregations of the Church ■Performing the ordinances of the Church, such as baptism ■Blessing those who are sick God expects those who hold this sacred priesthood authority to follow the example of Jesus Christ and serve with love, gentleness, and kindness.
