Hi I'm Sionetufui Wolfgramm

I'm a return missionary. I'm a cadet. I speak Chinese. I love my family and the Lord...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love all sports. I am interested in bio-medical engineering and in working with prosthetics. I love speaking Mandarin Chinese and love all types of Asian foods. I sing in a choir. I was born and raised in the great state of California. My father is Tongan, and my mother is Caucasian. I'm going to college right now at the United States Air Force Academy. I'm currently studying mechanical engineering. I have two amazing parents who have raised me to live a life of high standards and morals. I have an older sister who is an excellent role-model to me. I also have a younger brother who is currently serving in the England London South mission. There are a total of 5 of us children in the family, and I love every single one of them. My siblings are my best friends. My parents are my example.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because through my own personal experience I have come to understand that the only way to have true happiness in this life is to live the teachings of Jesus Christ. As we do so, we will feel an indescribable joy in our souls. Living the restored Gospel gives us confidence and integrity. We know who we are and where we are going. The teachings of Jesus Christ are like a road-map, showing us the path to take in this journey of life. It points the way to happiness. We don't have to wonder where to go, nor do we have to constantly stop and ask for directions, hoping the person we've asked actually knows and won't lead us down the wrong path. The voices of this world scream so loudly, trying to get us to go this way and that way. Many of their temptations are targeted at enticing us to make decisions that will only bring temporary satisfaction, but that will ultimately lead to unhappiness and despair. I know that if we follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ as restored by the prophet Joseph Smith, we will have joy in our lives. I know that God is our Father and wants the best for us. I furthermore know that if you also want to know, you can pray and ask God. Through the feelings in your heart and spirit, you will come to know the truthfulness of what I've said. May God bless you!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in my local church unit. Every Sunday in our meetings, we have lessons on different topics of the Gospel. I serve as a teacher who shares these lessons. We have a lay ministry in our church, meaning all of those that participate are volunteers and unpaid. Furthermore, I serve as a coordinator for our local choir. In addition to these duties, I also have been assigned to visit and watch over four young men and women in our local area. I am their home-teacher. This means that I visit them every month, support them, and do my best to make their lives better in any way I can. It is very rewarding to serve and live our faith. Jesus Christ taught that only those who actually do the will of the Father will be accepted by Him. By serving others, we do not just have good intentions in our heart; rather, we try and put those intentions into action. By serving others, we are following the example of Jesus Christ. By living our faith, we can feel closer to Christ and know that we are accepted by Him.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

You must ask yourself this one other question: does God communicate with His children? I know that God loves us so very much and does indeed communicate with us. Thus, you can literally ask Him (through the mode of prayer) if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His true church. I know that God will answer you. If you are unsure whether God still speaks to His children, then try this experiment and ask in prayer. You have nothing to lose. Experiment on the word of God and you can come to know of its truthfulness by the feelings in your heart, or more precisely the feelings in your spirit. Show more Show less
