Hi I'm Taoratee Dorothy Warantino

I grew up in the beautiful Island known as KIRIBATI.

About Me

I love spending my time with my friends,hanging around with them and also staying home to look after my beautiful little niece and my families.I love listening to all types of music and also to sing as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was converted when I was 13 years old through the missionaries.They came to my house and asked to share a wonderful message but my mum was not intrested.I felt curious about it. I asked my mom if it was ok for me to listen to their message. Luckily my mum allowed me to learn. From that time I started to learn until I was baptised.What helped me accept their invatation to be baptised was that Jesus Christ was baptised by John the Baptist. I knew that He's our Saviour and is perfect. Why did He need to be baptised? It makes sense that he SHOWS the way to us (Matthew 2:13-17). I thought to myself that I will follow this way. I knew with all my Heart that this was the right way and also that the message they told me is true. I have come to know this for myself through prayer and by studying the scripture's from the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I'm so grateful to my mum and Dad.They opened the way for me to listen to the missionaries even though they were not intrested.They let me listen and be baptised. They allowed me to change and have this wonderful life that I have now. I'm so grateful to be a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know the Book of Mormon is the Word of God compareable with the Bible.They both testify of Jesus Christ. Im so grateful for Joseph Smith. Through him the Church of Jesus Christ has been established once again in this world.I know with out a doubt that death is not the end of this life.We will meet again after this life :)

How I live my faith

Knowing that Jesus Christ is my Saviour and my reedemer challenged me to leave my family and friend's to Serve Him. Also to sacrifice myself to repay what he has done for me. So at the moment I serve a mission in Victoria, Australia. Well it was hard for me to leave my family and friend's to go to a place that is far from my island, but I know that by doing this work my family and friend's will be taken care of by Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ.
