Hi I'm Tietao

I'm from the pacific island, Kiribati. I'm a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

Right now I'm serving as a full time missionary in a foreign country. I am not very good to adapt to other cultures ! but i love TRYING. I grew up on the island of Kiribati, Micronesia. I went to school there, School for me was challenging but i loved trying . For Entertainment I love to play with boys, so physically demanding but i love trying...... well that's about me but i love to be a mormon!! i am not TRYING!!

Why I am a Mormon

My father became a teacher at Moroni High School, which is a local church run high school. His friend at school sent the missionaries to our home to teach us and my father used to say welcome the missionaries into our home, give them food but do not listen to their gospel. So when the missionaries came to the house , we left my father and the missionaries alone. Months later he got baptized and let us join the church a few months later. The gospel has changed my family a lot. We felt happiness and joy by knowing the Plan of Salvation the missionaries taught us about. Because my father made the decision to allow the missionaries to teach our family, I was able to become a member of the church. I know that the church is true. The Holy Spirit helped me to understand for myself that what they taught is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the Lord, preaching the gospel to all people as a full-time missionary. I served for about two years helping the sisters in my branch to increase their faith in God by teaching them the gospel , planning activities etc....

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a chosen prophet , restored the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth which had been lost for a long time ( a time of the Apostasy). By seeking his answer of why there were so many churches here on Earth, He saw a vision, in which he saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ . There he received his answer which to establish the church of Jesus Christ once again on the Earth. Show more Show less
