Hi I'm Ruta

I'm from Kiribati. They say my country is smaller than a bear. It's not. I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The thing that helps me to be close to the Lord is knowing His love and His great plan for all of us. I always feel peace and comfort when I turn to him. I love my family and even though I lost my father 2 years ago, I'm still happy and grateful because I know that through His plan, I will see my father again. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister and I'm the second child. I loved studying geography or working with maps, and my hobbies are playing volleyball and ukulele.

Why I am a Mormon

Joining this church with my family was amazing. Hearing from the missionaries that families can be together forever, even after this life, helped us to study deeply the gospel and want to know how that could be. This happened before my dad passed away. It was ten years ago. I felt that we were closer to each other and worked together to find our own answers to the missionary's discussions. Missionaries gave me the Book of Mormon and invited me to read and pray about it, and they promised me that I could receive answers. I know that if God promises us something He will fulfill it. So, I came to the point to have the desire and curiosity to know what kind of answers that I could receive from reading the Book of Mormon. I did pray before I read and continued on and every time I read I feel different: peace, comfort in my heart, and joy. For me, I loved those feelings and wanted them to still remain in me. So, I know that the answer to my prayer was to join this church and I could feel these feelings too. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and praying to God to receive the answer is the best way to do it. The Book of Mormon changed my life a lot and knowing that God loves us, and cares for all of us. We are His children and He wants us to be HAPPY in this life and even after this life and the most important thing is our FAMILY. I encourage you to apply this in your life, and I can promised you that you will feel peace, happiness, and comfort, even in your hard times. I know my Savior lives and He died for our sins.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living things what i learn and being a missionary in the Massachusetts Boston Mission including Manchester, Connecticut states so I can share the true message to every child of God.I love these places,people are awesome. The thing that I do as a missionary is to talk with people in every home AND family about our Savior Jesus Christ, and do the best I can to help them in physical and spiritual ways as well. I know that this life is hard but I also know that if we do our best to live AND follow the example of Jesus Christ, it can help us. One thing that I want to leave you with is to read the word of God every day and pray daily. Apply good things in your life, because if you do that, it will help you to draw closer to your Heavenly Father. It will also help you to stand strong so you can face and overcome every temptation in this world. I share these things with you because I know that it helps me a lot and makes me strengthened in my life. The Book of Mormon answers every question that I have.
