Hi I'm Meg Wright

I just returned from serving a mission in Fiji. I love to sing and run and read books. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am a missionary serving in the Fiji Suva mission. I feel so blessed to be able to serve the Fijian people and to share with them this gospel. Fiji is the most beautiful place in the world, and the people are equally as beautiful. Eventually I want to be able to become a social worker so that I can help broken families mend. My own brother grew up with multiple anxiety disorders, and as his older sister I was also his protector. Someday I hope to help make sure that kids like him are able to live in environments that help them succeed. This is something I am passionate about.

Why I am a Mormon

People may think that because I grew up being a Mormon, I am ignorant of the world and have been indoctrinated from the start. It is true that I can't remember the first time I went to church because it was the Sunday after I was born, but I can testify that my testimony is my own, not my parents'. I have gone through my own trials; trials where my faith was tested, but where I chose to turn to the Lord. Because I reacted this way, He gave me the strength to be able to bear these trials. I have prayed and gained the knowledge for myself that God lives, that the Book of Mormon is true, that Thomas S. Monson is the true prophet of our day, that Jesus Christ is our Savior, that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and received the revelation necessary to restore the true church upon the Earth today. I know that this church is true, and I am so grateful to have grown up within it. And I am so excited to be a missionary so that I can share this knowledge with the children of God in Fiji.

How I live my faith

I recently spent 18 months in the island nation of Fiji as a missionary. While on this mission, I served the people and taught them about the doctrine of Christ. Being a missionary is a selfless calling, where we learn to love people as Jesus loves them. The things that we teach to the people are the truths that we as Mormons believe, that will help them come unto Christ and eventually return to their Father in Heaven. Missionary life is hard, but so worth it when we see the changes that people make in their lives, and the relationship that they build with their Father in Heaven. I loved being a missionary. Serving was the greatest decision that I've ever made, and has helped me to become a little bit more like the person that the Lord needs me to be. I now understand who I am. I understand why I am here on this Earth. I understand that we are all brothers and sisters, and children of a loving Heavenly Father. This gospel is true and offers the same assurance to all those that partake of it. How grateful I am for the privilege of inviting the people of Fiji to do so. I will never forget my time there, and I will never allow the testimony that I gained there to die.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Meg Wright
As a missionary in Fiji, I was blessed to be invited in to every door I knocked on. The people there are accepting and loving and willing to listen to what we as missionaries have to offer. The message that we had the opportunity to share was centered on the Savior, Jesus Christ. Though most of the people there already had a belief in Jesus Christ, we promised them that as they listened and participated in the lessons, they would see how their relationship with their Savior would grow and expand and deepen. Again and again, the Lord fulfilled this promise, and as a result of this improved relationship with Christ, their lives changed for the better as well. Their families grew closer. They were able to find solutions to problems in their lives. This is what a better understanding of Christ does for us all. Regardless of where a missionary is called, they teach the same things: faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. They teach of the plan that God has for the happiness of His children. They teach about the Church and the truthfulness of it. They do not try to force their beliefs on anyone, they simply share. Give them a listen sometime! You won't regret it. Show more Show less
