Hi I'm Sione Tuuaki Manoa

I'm half Tongan & Samoan. I drive a 1971' Chevy Chevelle SS & currrently serving a fulltime mission in Minnesota & I'm a MORMON!

About Me

I was born and raised in The Bay Area and a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I attended Brigham Young University of Hawaii and was able to complete my undergraduate degree. My plans are to continue my degree in the Medical Field and prepare for Medical School. I enjoy playing all sports and listening to music. I’m currently serving the Lord to the fullest in THEE Minneapolis Minnesota Mission (Nov.2012- 2014) and striving to bring all those that are willing and ready, unto Christ. My mission has changed my life in countless ways and the experiences and struggle that I've faced in my life have made me the person that I am today. Eternal Joy is through the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it’s the Fullness of the Everlasting Gospel and brings me Eternal Happiness to know that I can live with my Family for All Time and Eternity. I am a Mormon because I know that this is CHRISTS ORIGINAL CHURCH that HE ESTABLISHED. I am Mormon because as I live the commandments I am promised to have ETERNAL LIFE. I am Mormon because as I serve others on my mission I am promised to have the Lord on my side every step of the way. I am Mormon because I received my answer that this is Christ’s True Church and that was through the Holy Spirit and the feelings I felt. I love the HAPPINESS that it brings into my life and I want to continue to share that with all those that I come in contact with. I am Mormon because I know without a shadow of a doubt that God loves us and that through the Plan of Happiness we can return and live in His presence.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as I stand as an instrument in the Lord’s hand and as I serve the people of Minnesota FULLTIME for the next two years. I live my faith as I sacrifice social life, education and time with my immediate family to serve others. I know that the Lord has PROMISED blessings that are being poured upon my family as I serve with EXACT OBEDIENCE. As I strive to be a LEADER and by being an EXAMPLE I show others that I live my FAITH. I have seen countless blessings already poured upon my family as my Mother has received the calling as Relief Society President and my Father who isn’t of my Faith, heart softened as I serve. I have seen through my example my Father able to see the BIGGER PICTURE of how Families can be Together Forever. As I continue to LIVE my FAITH my siblings are returning back to church and our main focus is to make it to the TEMPLE when I return. Eternal Happiness is what we strive for and as I serve with all my HEART, MIGHT, MIND and STRENGTH and have full FAITH in the LORD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
