Hi I'm Penili Pulotu

I'm Tongan, a full time missionary, and I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am a Tongan, son of God, member and a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love hanging out with family and friends. I love to play sports. I love listening to music. Most importantly I love our Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this magnificent church 20 years ago. Growing up I always knew this church was true but never really had been converted to the Gospel. I went to church every Sunday, and did everything that was required. I agreed with everything that was taught and I definitely felt the Spirit many many times. Finally when i reached the age of 18 when we have the opportunity as young men to serve a mission I accepted the call to serve in the Chicago West mission. I knew this was the true church and I had a strong testimony. I still don't think I was truly converted to the Gospel but within this last year on my mission I have grown more than I could have imagine. I have come to love this Gospel. I have truly experienced something remarkable inside me work its way out and change my life. Now after 20 years I feel I have become converted to the Gospel. It's been a journey and I struggle everyday. I know this church is true. I know the joy and happiness it can bring to the lives of those who embrace it. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I live my life. I strive to be like my Savior Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect but every day i keep learning from my mistakes. For these two years i am currently living my faith by serving a full time mission in the Chicago West Mission. So far it's been the best part of my life to be able to bring this amazing Gospel and everything it entails, such as the happiness, peach, and joy to the lives of others.
