Hi I'm Taraetiu

I love my family more than Hot spicy food and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of seven. I am from the Kiribati Islands in the south pacific, 1,700 miles north of the Fiji Islands. I like geography, drawing, playing volleyball and reading. Believe it or not every time I cook, everything turns out good except the rice, it always gets burned.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter DaySaints, I grew up SDA- seven day adventist. My father was the first one investigating the church, and from there I started to take lessons with him and my family. I prayed and read from both the Bible and the Book of mormon and I received the answer through the holy ghost and from what I read, after I got baptised I was able to learn more and to realized that everything is true. I have a strong testimony that Joseph Smith was the prophet called by God and that Jesus Christ is our savior and I know that I can be together forever with my family, and that is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

At this time I am currently serving as a full time missionary in the Anaheim Mission, I live my faith by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to my brothers and sisters from Heavenly Father here in California. I am willing to share what heavenly father wants me to share to everyone I come in contact with. I love the gospel and the people that I get to serve. Even though my little sister died before she was born, through the gospel of Jesus Christ I know that I can be with her again. Families are for eternity.
