Hi I'm Vaiokema

I'm a Mormon. I have spent pretty much all of my life in Utah and Tonga, and i like both of those places! Also, i read a lot!

About Me

Well, what can i say, I like to read! i did Tae Kwon Do for a while, and i absolutely LOVED it. It's Awesome!! I come from a family of 6 children, and i'm number 4. MUSIC!!! I love it. And Art, cant forget about that. I love to draw.

Why I am a Mormon

In a nutshell, I'm a mormon because i have read the book of Mormon and prayed about it and i know it's true. Now, that statement took about ten seconds to write, but the process of reading and praying has been going on since i was a small boy. I first took up the challenge to read the book of mormon and pray about it when i was 8 years old. I got an answer that it was true, and so i have continued to be a member of the church, and always try to act accordingly. Because I know that the book of mormon is true, i know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is true. Thus, i do what i can to live the principles taught by the church, because i know that by doing so I am doing what god wants me to do. Simple, no?

How I live my faith

Well, right now i am serving as a missionary for the Church in Sunny Southern California. I love it! Basically what i do is just go around trying to talk to anyone who will listen about the Gospel and the plan that god has for each and every one of us. It is by far the best thing i have ever done, sharing the good news with everyone that god has restored his church and called another prophet. Before I began serving as a missionary, I was a teacher in the 'primary', which is basically the churches sunday school program for the children. I taught the 6 year olds, and it was Awesome!
