Hi I'm Lyle Letalu-Lokeni

I'm from Lehi, Utah. I love my family. I love film. I love you. Jesus does too. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I, Lyle, having been born of goodly parents...haha I love my family with all my heart. I love my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I love to film anything from documentaries to music videos but definitely would like to direct a blockbuster film one day, but would never film anything I couldn't comfortably show my parents. Lehi is my home. I imagine heaven looks something like it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of this church and am grateful for faithful, loving parents who have set an amazing example of activity for me to follow. As I was growing up, I definitely had questions and doubts about whether or not the church was true. At times when my doubt was deepest, I often felt like I had spiritual experiences confirming the truthfulness of the Gospel but, I failed to act on those confirmations. I decided that I would act on the spiritual promptings I had been receiving. I opened the Book of Mormon and began to read. I figured if I was going to know, it was going to come from God. So I read the Book of Mormon. I prayed about it. And I attended church. Just as the missionaries invite everyone to do and I received an answer. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. It confirms that Jesus is the Messiah and that because He lives, I will live again. It testifies of Christ over and over and over again. I also know that because the Book of Mormon is true, that THIS IS CHRIST'S CHURCH and that prophets walk the earth today. That testimony is one that I cherish. I learned from that experience my testimony was not gained from a bout with inactivity. It was gained just as everyone must gain one for themselves. Read the Book of Mormon, ponder the message it contains and ask God the Eternal Father, with real intent, whether it is true, and you will know by power of the Holy Ghost that it is true. I know you will receive an answer and that it will change your life.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to bear my testimony to people each day. I was able to serve as an advisor for the 14 & 15 year old young men in my local congregation back home. I absolutely loved it. Currently serving a full-time mission in Charlotte, NC.
