Hi I'm Tu'ungafasi

I love to live in the world but not of the world. I love my life and I absolutely love my friends and my Savior. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Tonga my whole life in the Island of Vava'u and i'm from Ta'anea. I attend the church high school and seminary class. I enjoy life here on earth like dance, rugby, tennis, vollybal and everything i wan't to do. This is my hobby and i love it. Hopefully i'll show how its done hahaha! Now i serve a full time mission in Georgia Atlanta North Mission. It is amazing to sacrifice my life,talents and all the gift from God to serve Him. I love my family,friend and relative. They are so good to me and i love you too!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and my parents are both converts. I like the name of the Church because Joseph Smith asked God what will be the name of His Church be called in the last days. I believe the truth was lost and it needed to be restored so that we can know what the purpose of this life is. I truly believe 100% in modern revelation and God speaking through a prophet today just like in ancient days. He is same yesterday, today, and forever. Everything make sense to me when I study my religion. But I still have questions like many people do. 2 of them are: Why are there lots of different churches? If God wants us to be of one heart and one mind, why are we so different? So I decided to read The Book of Mormon from the beginning and to find out if this is the word of God. I read the testimony of the three and eight witnesses and also the testimony of the prophet Joseph Smith. And this is how I came to know, by their strong and mighty testimony. They testified to their death that they had seen an angel. They knew that if they were faithful in Christ, they would rid their garments of the blood of all men and be found spotless before the judgment seat of Christ, they knew they could dwell with Him eternally in the heavens if they did so. I feel that their testimonies are true, even though I was not there to see with them. But I know it from the power of the Holy Ghost and that feeling of love, peace, and happiness that it brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by abiding to the teaching of the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For example, Jesus said in the sriptures" If you love me keep my commandments" (John 14:15). So how i show to my Heavenly Father i love Him? Well i try my very best to be sincerer keep His commandments and always make a right choices, be a good example by going out doing good, love everyone even my enemys bless them, avoid hypocrites and do what Christ likes that your light be shine all the peopel arounds you. Not only that but i try to read my scripture every day and also by doing simple things it will brings to pass greater blessing. This is how i live my faith? I know today is a difficult time to live according to the commandments of God. He know it, cause we all have flesh and we are not be perfect like Him. But because He love you and He love me and we are all His childrent as brothers and sisters. He made it possible through His son Jesus Christ to all of us who seek to find the way. And the truth of it will come when you experience the joy from the spirit, when you live according to all His commandments. This is how i live my faith and i always share what i learn from the gosple for every opportunity i have.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Well this is why we perform baptisms for the dead! Because “that they might be judged according to God in the spirit.” (This quote is found in 1 Peter 4:6). Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered for our sins that we may be forgive from all the burden of our sins. But he did not eliminate or take our responsibility. Ponder in your heart if God will judge you about your faith in His son Jesus Christ. But you don't know about Him until you pass away from this life. How about the people who die but they already know? Or others they know Him but they do not believe? So how will the Lord make it fair to this different people according to His mercy and justice? The scripture has told us the way to find out for ourselves if we don't know the answers( Jeremiah 29:13) and the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord(Habakkuk 2:14). We cannot be perfect without those who are dead and they can't become perfect without our help (Hebrews 11:40). We will come to know everything when we understand the love of God. And the reason why I know? Because our Loving Heavenly Father restored the fullness of the gospel through Joseph Smith and the authority or priesthood to perform these ordinances, it shows His love to those who don't have the opportunity to hear the gospel here on earth. The Apostle Paul's explain it clear to us and it’s found in 1 Corinthians 15:29. This work is only perform and do in the temple in behalf of someone and they choose if they accept. Show more Show less
