About Me

Im 21years old, currently serving in the Micronesia Guam Mission on the Island of Palau, I was born and raised the Gospel. My greatest example in my life was my mother (Faagalo Purcell Pauga 1964-2005) Im a PROUD SAMOAN from the Villages of Lauli'i and Malaela. I love playing Basketball, Rugby, Boxing, MMA. I was born and raised in Hawaii. Our family has traveled a lot. I've live in Las Vegas, Navada; South Auckland, New Zealand and Samoa. I love Samoa the Best. I graduated from The Church College of Pesega in 2008. All i can say is that i LOVE THE ISLANDS AND THE GOSPEL

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because was born in the Gospel but I have come to know the things which i have been taught to me to be true is because I have done the things which i have told all those whom ive taught, which is to: Search, Ponder and Pray. I have done this in my life and I have come to know for myself that the Gospel is true. No one is perfect and i have had my times where my faith has shaken and i went down the wrong path, ive had so many trials in my life and i know that everyone does. Being able to understand the Plan that our Heavenly Father has for us is a great way to also know that OUR FAMILIES CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER and that is something that i am truly grateful for. I know as we continue to follow and keep the commandment was will always has his blessings.

How I live my faith

I continue to study the Book of Mormon everyday and try my best to look,act and teach as a representative of Jesus Christ. Ive been a leader for the Young Single Adults in Vailele 2nd Ward,Samoa and also I was a leader to look after some of the youth who where in the age group of 12-14 in Waipahu 1st Samoan Ward,Hawaii. Its great to see the love and excitement that i saw as a Leader. The best thing i can say is that has really blessed my life is being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and also being called to be a Missionary. Studying everyday and preaching about our Savior and how we can endure in this life and in the life to come really brings joy into my soul.
