Hi I'm Sioeli V Fahina

Born in New Zealand moved to Australia at a very young age in my life. I'm a TWIN a UNCLE a TONGAN a BROTHER and i'm a MORMON..

About Me

I love life! I am very positive and out going. I’m a passionate advocate for the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints. I currently reside in Sydney Australia with my family. I enjoy "EATING" and MAKING PEOPLE LAUGH. I was born in New Zealand raised in Australia. Through out my life I have strive to be the best that i can be. Never did i think that i am less than what i truly am. I went to senior campus chiefly college. I am currently serving as a missionary in the "New Zealand Wellington/Hamilton Mission" and i'm loving and enjoying the experience. Being a missionary has taught me to see Things in a different perspective and do Things in a respectful manner. It has also taught me that what ever trails we may face in life. the LORD is always there to Answer our prayers but he does it in his own due time. I love sharing the "GOSPEL" it brings peace, joy,love, a sense of belonging to those that haven't had the opportunity to hear our great message. I Love sports with a passion love playing Tennis,Football. growing up in a "Tongan family" has helped me become the person i am today. i'm grateful for loving parents who were able to bring me up in the gospel. it is through their examples i considered serving a mission. I'm the first in my family to serve a mission and it truly feels incredible. i know by serving a mission will encourage and inspire my younger brothers and sisters to serve the lord as well.

Why I am a Mormon

Just like many I was raised in the church so that may have been why I started out as a member but it's not why I decided to stay one.I cannot deny the Gospel. Living the gospel brings joy and contentment to my life. The gospel is still helping me to develop my talents and my interest more effectively. Most importantly that I know my relationship with my families and friends will continue after this life and that is what is very important to me. Families can be together forever. knowing this bring peace and comfort to the soul. my family means the world to me. it brings great satisfaction that the plan of salvation is real. I love being a Mormon! It is wonderful to be able to covenant with the Lord. To know why I am on the earth, to understand where we go after we have lived our lives. To enjoy the wonderful spirit in the temple. I love singing inspired hymns everyday to help feel inspired and unstoppable .I LOVE being a MORMON. because Knowing the truth and living it are two separate things. Striving for it is a difficult challenge at times. When you are permitted into the house of the Lord (our temples), we realize just how significant WE are. That WE really do have worth, WE are a CHILD of GOD. The knowledge that my Heavenly Father loves me enough to allow me to live with my family beyond death forever "if I live his word"

How I live my faith

I Try my best to serve others I try to follow the Lord's standards: be honest, dependable, friendly, treat others with love and charity, avoid negative and destructive influences. Mainly I try to do my best, and to live consistent with what I know to be true.also being a good a example to others especial with people that are not off our faith.This is where action kicks in Actions good thoughts, and positive energy, speak louder than judgmental words and are the most powerful tools you can use when working with non members.Another way i live my faith is by helping people in need.As a full time missionary we offer people service where ever we go .i love doing service for others. in (Mosiah 2:16–17.) it read And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God;

In whom should we have faith?

Sioeli V Fahina
In order to come closer to Heavenly Father and receive all the blessings that He has for you, you must first develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Peter taught that “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Faith in God is more than a theoretical belief in Him. To have faith in God is to trust Him, to have confidence in Him, and to be willing to act on your belief in Him. It is a principle of action and power. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Sioeli V Fahina
The Book of Mormon prophet Alma compared faith to a seed. If you plant a seed and nourish it, if it is a good seed it will grow and eventually bear fruit (Alma 32:28-43). It is the same with faith. If you are obedient to God’s commandments, study His word, and have a desire to believe in Christ, faith will grow inside of you. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Sioeli V Fahina
In “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” many Mormon beliefs about families are outlined. One of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ core beliefs is that family relationships can last forever—not just for this life. Just as some of life’s sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. But death does not need to be the end of our relationships with cherished loved ones. The Lord revealed to the Prophet Joseph Smith that the “same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there [in eternity], only it will be coupled with eternal glory” (Doctrine and Covenants 130:2). Family members who accept the Atonement of Jesus Christ and follow His example can be together forever through sacred ordinances performed in God’s holy temples. Jesus gave to Peter the power to have things sealed on earth and sealed in heaven (Matthew 16:19). This same sealing power was restored to Joseph Smith. Mormon’s believe that they can be “sealed” or bound together through His power enabling them to live together in eternity. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Sioeli V Fahina
The Savior taught His disciples, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations” (Matthew 28:19). As followers of Jesus Christ, members of His Church are enthusiastic about proclaiming the good news of His restored gospel to all who are willing to listen. Carlos E. Asay, a Church leader, said, “(There is) a marvelous phenomenon which occurs among men when the light of the gospel illuminates their lives. Almost instinctively, it seems, the light of truth sparks a desire to share. When our minds are expanded by new knowledge, we want others to know; when our spirits are elevated by heavenly influence, we want others to feel; and when our lives are filled with goodness, we want others, particularly those whom we love, to enjoy similar experiences.” You may have seen missionaries riding on bicycles or walking door to door, sharing their message. They are doing everything they can to seek out people who may be interested in learning more about Jesus Christ and God’s plan for their happiness. They serve in pairs, for “in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established” (Matthew 18:16). Missionaries volunteer full-time service for a period of eighteen months to two years.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Sioeli V Fahina
You can be forgiven of your sins through the Atonement of Jesus Christ by the process of repentance. Because Heavenly Father knew we would sometimes make wrong choices, He provided a way for us to be forgiven of our sins (John 3:16). He provided a Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross so that when we sincerely repent, we can be forgiven (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 4:6).

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Sioeli V Fahina
The Holy Bible testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ and has influenced and sustained millions of His followers. It is a collection of sacred writings containing God’s revelations and accounts of His dealings with His children in the Holy Land. The historical accounts in the Bible cover many centuries, from the time of Adam through the death of the Apostles. Likewise most of the books of the Bible were written by and about prophets who lived at various times in the history of the world. As you probably know, the Bible is divided into the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament contains sacred texts written prior to the birth of Christ. Many prophets in the Old Testament fortold the coming of a Savior and Redeemer (See Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, 53:3-7). The New Testament tells of the life of that Savior and Redeemer, who is Jesus Christ. It also tells of the establishment of His original Church. Show more Show less
