Hi I'm Lasi

I'm Hawaiian. I have a love for sports and food. My passion is Polynesian dancing. I'm in this to the end. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Idaho Pocatello Mission(IPM). I love to eat, read the scriptures, and the samoan fire knife dance. My love has always been for athletics, but my passion is Polynesian dancing. I've been a member all my life but it's never been easy. I have seen His hand in my life and also know that He answers prayers as we do our part. I love learning more about it because it helps me to do my best to be obedient to His commandments as well as having fun with those I'm around. My trials of life have made me stronger and develop the desire to serve a full-time mission. I'm not perfect, but I strive for it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon to know if it's true and now it truly has changed my life. It's hard to understand or comprehend the "Joseph Smith story" but it's by doing these things and reading from the Book of Mormon, I was able to know. That's how we come to know that Heavenly Father has called Joseph Smith to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as He has always done in the past. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our current Prophet today that leads and guides us. I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers by the power of the Holy Ghost. Jesus Christ came to the world to redeem us and save us from our sins and to help us live with our Father in Heaven again. Each day that goes by, I continually see the Lord's hand in my life and my testimony and conversion of Him grows stronger.

How I live my faith

I continue to go to church, read my scriptures, pray, and dominate life:) There's a lot that I don't know about life and the Gospel, but I put my trust in Him as I go throughout life. I'm learning to D.O. M.O.R.E. and to become as Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through Church attendance, Pray daily, and Read and study from the scriptures. By doing these small and simple things(Alma 37:6), I am able to learn and receive more of those things that are important in this life and the life to come.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book Of Mormon is what it says on the front cover: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It adds another testimony that God exists, He remembers His covenants or promises He made with His children, that Jesus Christ is Our Savior, and, like the Bible, it tells us how we can return to Heavenly Father's Kingdom. It doesn't force us to do anything, but it invites us to follow Him. Read it, it's a Good book:) Show more Show less
