Hi I'm Sione

I grew up in Western Samoa, I love volleyball, basketball, and rugby, I love to have fun, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Western Samoa in the village of Malie. I attended college and university. I love history, geography and english. I love music and dancing. I love all sports. I love island life. I love playing the ukulele. I love the lord so I am serving him in the Anchorage, Alaska mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the church is true. I have seen blessings in my life. I know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ, families can be together forever. I know that God is our eternal father and he loves us, and I have had many prayers answered. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it and received an answer. I have a strong testimony about the Book of Mormon. I know that without the Savior's grace and mercy, and the infinite atonement made possible for us, we can not return to live with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am serving the Lord in the Anchorage, Alaska mission. I try my best to share the truth and help those in need and share the blessings that I have to others how the gospel blesses my life. I also live my faith by reading the Book of Mormon and pondering about it. It helps me understand and promote more faith in the Savior.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Sione
The Book of Mormon is a record of God's dealings with the people of the Ancient Americas. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It was written by prophets, just as the Bible. It along with the Holy Bible, make up the fulness of the everlasting gospel. They testify of each other, but their main purpose is to proclaim that Jesus is the Christ. The fulness of his gospel is restored back on the earth. Like it says in the Bible for an example, Jesus Christ was baptized in the book of Matthew. But the Book of Mormon says that he was baptized to fulfill all righteousness, so the Book of Mormon helps you to understand more about the Savior and increase your faith in him. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Sione
Families can be together forever, through Heavenly Father's plan. Jesus Christ is central to his plan. If we follow him and his gospel, we can live with our families not just for this life, but for the life to come. The family is ordained by God, it is a special social unit in our Heavenly Father's plan. The purpose for our families is to have happiness, joy, peace, in this life, and prepare ourselves to return to live with our Heavenly Father. Because the gospel, and the priesthood were restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith, we can be sealed to our families in the temples forever. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Sione
The best way for you to know the truth is to read the Book of Mormon and ponder with a desire, and pray with faith to Heavenly Father, asking him if it is true. If you do these things, I promise you that God will answer your prayers. Cause he has answered my prayers. And I have a strong testimony about it. If you come to church you will also gain a testimony of the truthfulness of the church. Don't take my word for it, pray and ask for yourselves and act upon the answer you receive. Then you will receive the same answer as I received. Show more Show less
