Hi I'm Tamatoa

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

About Me

I love music ! I am going to Brigham young university Hawaii and I work at the Polynesian Cultural Center in the Night Show. I play guitar, piano, ukulele.

Why I am a Mormon

the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and more specifically the teaching of Jesus Christ help me in my every day life! I gained a testimony of it. By applying the teaching and striving to obey the commandments, I found joy, comfort and hope. I know with all my heart that this is the only way to reach the level of everlasting joy that I feel. I pray that every one can feel how I feel about this church. I know each and every one of god's children can come to the knowledge of the truthfulness of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ here in earth with the power and authority to have eternal families and the right to be with our loved one's forever and for always ! In the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I served as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints and after my mission my testimony of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ through the Book of Mormon and the prophet Joseph Smith had become stronger. I also teach in Sunday meetings and that help me a lot to understand more deeply the teachings of Jesus Christ. Every Sunday when I go to church, I feel the spirit of the lord and I enjoy the peaceful and inspired music. when I listen to the testimonies and talks, I am strengthen and receive answer for my problems. I know this Church is the only one on earth like this. there is no other way to feel such a joy. In the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Faith itself is believing in something you know to be true but cannot prove it with physical evidence. Having Faith in Jesus Christ is believing that he has died for us because we know it, because we can feel it. In order to grow it, I believe that you have to learn a little bit about what Christ did for us, his story. Once you start to learn or read about his life, pay attention to your feelings, what you are feeling in the moment. You will fell that it is true, it is hard to explain it with words, but you will know. Then you will have to act upon this feeling, if you believe that Jesus Christ lived, suffered and died for us, you have to start following what he asks you to do. He wants us to live hi Gospel which is to have faith in him, repent or change our ways to become more like him, get baptized by his authority to take upon ourselves his name and be witnesses of him, and receive the Holy Spirit then Endure to the end. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, I know that he lived, suffered and died for us and that and I know that by learning more and more about what he did for us will help us come closer to him. I know that he sees all of our efforts to come to know him and that we just have to open our eyes and realize that he is knocking on the doors of our hearts, we just have to open and let him in. In his name, Jesus Christ, I pray that you will try this experience and come unto him. Amen Show more Show less
