I'm Samoan. I love music and sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Talof Lava! my name is Chris. im the oldest of 4 and im grateful for my siblings cause they have helped me become who i am today. i am one who loves my parents and i thank God everyday for them! they have reared me in the way of the gospel and i am truly thankful for that. I play sports of all kinds! i like some more than others! like baseball, football, volleyball, and basketball. and i have also picked up writing poetry. im not the best but it helps me get stuff off my mind. i am actually serving a mission now in the PENNSYLVANIA PITTSBURGH MISSION and its the BEST in the WORLD!! haha so many experiences both spiritual, mental, and physical have made me the person i am today. i dont have a long time left out here but i am going out with a BANG!! rocksteady and hand to the plough not looking back. im grateful for my weaknesses cause they have become strengths in the Lord. if you want to know more about me just hit me up when i get back haha well much alofas and God bless everyone! #deucez!

Why I am a Mormon

why am i a Mormon? simple! I GOT BAPTIZED FOO!! haha but nah i found out for myself the true power of the atonement of Jesus Christ and the influencing power of the Holy Ghost!! the Holy Ghost has touched my heart and has also testified to me that the Book of Mormon is another witness of Christ and that it adds its testimony with the Bible that Jesus is the Christ! To know that Christ has died for me in taking upon himself my sicknesses and my pains and of all, my sins makes me eternally indebted to him!! and not only for me but that he did that for the world!! i cannot express my love and my gratitude for my saviour, Jesus Christ!! He works today through living prophets and they are worthy men called of God!! God lives, Jesus is the Christ, the Book of Mormon is true and is another testament of Him, i know that my family will be together forever!! and that is why im a MORMON!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday through my actions, but because i am human, I always fall short!! but as of now i am serving my Lord and God in the Pennslyvania, Pittsburgh Mission and i live my faith everyday! i was also in the youth group back home and i did scouting through the church. and now as a missionary of the church i am able to show everyone what makes me happy! this gospel makes me happy and i am grateful that it is in my life!!
