Hi I'm Nelson THUNOT

I was born in the beautiful island of Tahiti from goodly parents. Art is my passion and I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm an island boy in love with my culture and art. I was born in the protestant faith but joined the church with my mother when I turned 9 years old. It has been such a great experience. As I previously said I love art. Growing up, I was always drawing whenever I had the opportunity or even when I was bored. Studying graphic design allows me to develop the talents I have been blessed with but also gives me the chance to learn new skills. Something that attracts me the most is the concept of polynesian patterns or tattoos. I simply love them! However, I know that tattoos are against our beliefs, so I'm trying connect polynesian patterns and digital design. I hope that someday, I'll find a way to create strong connection with these patterns and graphic design. I'm not sure yet what I can to reach that goal but I'm working on it.

Why I am a Mormon

I always wondered that question. Why am I a mormon? But as grew older, then I realize that Lord just wanted me to experience his blessings and know that he loves me. I am a mormon because I chose to be one. I do not base my beliefs on my parents or my friends or leaders, but on the things that I have seen, lived and experienced from the day I joined the church until now. I am a mormon because I have gained a personal testimony of the veracity of this gospel. The beauty of this gospel is that everyone can know that the restored gospel of Jesus christ is true. We just need to seek with real intent, ask with a sincere heart and be willing to act on the answer given. I have done it myself and that is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

Well, I just try to do my best to choose the right. It is not easy at all, but it is possible. One responsibility that I try to do my best is hometeaching. When I left the mission field, my mission president told me that the work is not done but just started and that I needed to continue sharing the gospel. I'm trying my best to do what he encouraged me to do. Hometeaching is one thing that I consider as mission work, that is why I do my best to always do it. I know that it is just visiting members, but everytime that I visit with them, I have the same feeling that I felt on my mission. A feeling of satisfaction that I have contributed in the work of the Lord. I feel so bless to have found the restored gospel. I strive to fulfill my responsibilties in the church and with my wife. I am just so blessed with what I have and I thank Heavenly Father for that.
