Hi I'm Marleen Epina

I'm from Micronesia (Pohnpei) and I have ten siblings. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the third youngest of eleven children.I am now sevring a mission in Australia Melbourne Mission. My favorite hobbies are volleyball and baseball.

Why I am a Mormon

I was a person who didn't know the meaning of life here on earth. I always convinced myself that I had to commit suicide so that I could be free from wasting my time here on earth. But it turns out I was completely wrong. I found out that I'm a daughter of God and I have a purpose here on earth. I joined the church with excitement, without having a testimony about it. Because I didn't have my own testimony, I soon stopped going to church.Then I realized that there was something missing in my life. I felt empty. I was completely hungry and thirsty. I knew that the only way to quench my hunger and thirst was to start going back to church and to let Jesus Christ back into my life. I have never been happier and have never felt lighter.

How I live my faith

I always try my best to be a good example to my nonmember family by following the Commandment of the Lord and obeying the Princple and Doctrine of the Gospel. I'm also trying to be more like Jesus Christ by serving a mission.
