Hi I'm Jacob Tiananga

I grew up in Huntly, New Zealand. I started working in the coal mines when i was 18. I love my my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the church since i was a little boy. I really couldnt ask for a better childhood. As i grew older i started to become more open minded in the decision's i had made. Things became more difficult when i was going to high school where all the students aint mormons and their were only a hand full of us. At the time i had been playing basketball and rugby league for the school. I would be tempted to do unuasually activitys that was in harm with the standards of our church. It was a real challenge for me through out my years at high school but, what got my feet back up was my loving family and how much support they had given me. I dropped out of high school and started working in the coal mines, no matter where you go there will always be places that will challenge your faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true. Through my experiences and challenges ive come come to know this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I love my family so much. I love each and everyone of you. I love our prophet Thomas.S.Monson who guides us. i know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and is the true word of god.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being helpful to my parents and the elderly in my church. Service plays a big part of my faith, faith helps my testimony and also helps appreciate life more.
