Hi I'm Elder Alexander Arona

TALOFA LAVA! I am currently serving as a full time missionary in the "BEAST" Australia Sydney North Mission! E moni le tala lelei!

About Me

I was born and raised in Amrecian Samoa from the village of Leone. I was also raised up in the Catholic faith with devout Catholics in my family. In 2008 I had the opportunity to move to America (Utah) where I met the missionaries. Growing up I was always taught to love God and the missionaries helped me to love him even more. Something that they taught was the plan that Heavenly Father has for me and for the rest of my family. As they taught I felt peace, Happiness and Joy because I knew that they were teaching me the truth. I felt the influence of God and it confirmed to me that what these missionaries were teaching were true! So I made the wonderful decision to be baptized!! Its been such a blessing to live the Gospel in my life. I have never been happier. I finally have a real testimony of our savior Jesus Christ. I know he lives and he will come again! I know that Heavenly Father loves his children and that he still speaks to us today through modern day prophets. I love the Book of Mormon! It enhances the Bible in so many ways. I am grateful for the wonderful opportunity to serve Heavenly Father in Australia. I have grown so much from testifying to people about his restored gospel on the earth. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for us. I have felt his influence heal a broken soul. His love for us is unfailing!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon because I believe that there is life after death and the plan of salvation is one of the most powerful reasons why I have so much faith. My father passed away when I was 4 years old and I believe that I will see him again. I love this gospel and everything about it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply being a great example to others and keeping the commandments. I've noticed so many blessings in my life and I have become so HAPPY!!!
