Hi I'm Nela Tu'uhetaufa

I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I love football, music, and my Family. I am a missionary and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My favorite things in life are very simple. I love my family, playing sports, having fun with friends, and just serving others. I plan to continue a career in football after honorably returning from a full time mission here in Anaheim California. My biggest dreams other then playing in the pro's is to be married to the girl of my dreams, have a career as a pediatrtion so I can continue serving others, and having a big family. That'd be my fairy tale ending living happily ever after. haha. But the only thing between me and that dream is the journey. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step". I believe it's a journey worth taking.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in 4th grade I started playing football. I idolized my older cousins cause they were the highschool stars and everything. So growing up I thought that being a good football player means doing everything that they do. I got into a lot of trouble because of that mind set and when I was 16 I was at stage in my life where I thought that everything I do in life was about my friends or in other words "The Homies" lol. I was making a lot stupid decision and School and family and religion was the last things on my mind. But like everything in life you face the consequences of your actions and I started to struggle more and more by trying to be who I thought I wanted to be. One day I came home to my mom crying and she said "I hate when you leave cause I never Know if your gonna come home." I love my mom with all my heart and i knew that my decisions were the big reasons why she would cry at night. I was sick of trying to be someone I wasn't. I remember praying and telling God that if He just showed me who I NEEDED to be I'll stop trying to be who I think I wanted to be. A few weeks later a friend bore there testimony to me and Ended in Christs name. I Felt that same peace from a few weeks before when i found myself on my knees inquiring of the Lord. My aunt hooked me up with the missionaries and I was baptized. The greatest decision I've made! taking upon me the name of Christ and being His disciple here in the Mission Field.Why am I Mormon? cause its who I NEED to be!

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission in Anaheim California. As a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I live my faith by lovingly serving others. My main goal in life is to truly live a Christlike life that everyone around me will know that I am a man that Loves my savior! I try to live my faith by forgetting myself, turning outwards and making my life all about serving others. I believe that Service is the action form of Love. Serving is Charity and Charity never fails cause it is the pure love of Christ. and it is through charity that we can all live the faith and be an example of the believers. I believe that Christ did come to earth and established His Gospel. Calling the twelve and giving them the keys to the priesthood therefore giving them the authority to act in Gods name for the benefit of His children. Leading the way of how we should live our lives. Submitting Himself to the will of the Father and Atonening for the Sins of the world. When He Left the earth He was able to leave us the greatest gift anyone can ever give. The Holy Ghost or in other words His peace. "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." -John 14:27 It is through this gift that the world entirely can come to know that Jesus is the son of God and our Loving Savior! D&C 46:13-14. My testimony stands firm and emovable. and that is that I KNOW that He LIVES!
