Hi I'm Mataio "Luau" Lealiiee

Mataio is my name, i ball HARD, i'm samoan and i am a ninja!

About Me

I belong to a clan with a destination in mind. EUROPE! Shout out to OCMO and Iron Man! I really enjoy swimming, movies, contact sports, full court basketball, volleyball, keeping score, boating, riding motorized vehicles, wasting tons of money eating out a lot, surfing the internet, relaxing, taking naps, sleeping in, playing board games, especially foreign ones, owning cards, collecting knives and other weapons, and chewing gum in public! I would feel terrible if I couldn't do any of those things! Nobody really knows me because I am not from here. A lot of people try to act like I am from here but I am not. Im not from here. One thing you should know about me, I ball hard. Africa Represent!! I know how to have fun and what to do to have fun but still maintain my good values and still have people see me as A MORMON... I love my family with ALL my heart!! They are my everything(together with God). ROLL TIDE! ALABAMA FOREVER!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a mormon is more than just joining the church! We believe that faith without works is dead, hence we obey the Lord and look for every opportunity to serve others. We have good church programes that help each and every individual grow spiritually, and physically... What i love about my church is the standard of living that we're taught to live by our leaders which standards make us good and better people. Joinning the church has helped my family live a much better life than we used to before. We now are abled to have our time as a family since the church's "main focus" is families. We believe and know that families can be together forever in this life and the life to come and for all eternities! that is one of the joys that i have received and made me believe that this church is Christ's... Who would say NO to this????? I wouldn't that is why i didn't... I feel the power and influence of the Holy Spirit of Christ as i attend church every sunday... I have never felt that at any of the sects i've visited before... This gospel also taught me that i can be with my family for all eternities so long i keep the Lord's commands and go to the Holy House Of God, the Temple and be sealed with them by someone who has the authority from Jesus Christ to do that... HOW GREAT IS MY JOY..!

How I live my faith

What i do to help others around me is to attend all church services that we hold frequently as we go out to help the community with things like cleaning the local schools, old aged homes and other government or private programs oriented for the poor, disabled and the needy. We also visit orphanage homes and offer support where ever we can or help maintain a good environment for our fellow brothers and sisters. I always try to be the best example to everyone particularly my peers in my community. I used to teach what we call 'seminary' where we learn about religion and how the youth can and should live so we can better shape the road to our future... I witness almost everyday how this true restored gospel can change a life, bring hope to the hopeless and bless each of us as we strive for perfection... I have received more blessings than the ones i serve as I serve them. Serving the Lord as a missionary in Alabama has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my life.
