Hi I'm Vise

Tongan born, New Zealand bred and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love Music and RUGBY. Currently serving as a Full time missionary in the Philippines

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with a strong front line of catholic's. I was pretty much forced to attend sunday worship; we didn't have a choice. Although we attended regularly, I did not really understand or was taught much at all. We kids would just go to meet up with our friends and cousins and then talk about some cartoon figure for an hour or so. Two things I can vividly remember is 1. The Atonement & 2. Christmas. We knew all that was said was true but the problem was that we didn't really have our testimony of who Christ really is. Growing up, my friends and I would always attend different christian youth groups/camps And we would always joke about Mormon Missionaries and how we would not open the door to them every time they came to visit the home. As I got older my faith in Jesus died and was hard for me to revive because I was too far, deep in the world. I had my first lesson with the LDS missionaries when I was 21 years of age And everything that I learned in that 40 minutes was by far, more than anything that I had in the 20 years of growing up in different churches. If people would ask me what it is about this Gospel; then I would two things; Jesus Christ" & "Family" 3 years after my baptism, here I am awaiting to leave for my mission in South Asia at the age of 24.. hoping to build upon what I already have and find the many, other lost sheep that were in a similar situation as me.

How I live my faith

I try my very best to go out at every opportunity I get with helping out at service projects outside of church. At church I am responsible for greeting new members, updating records of new members moving in/out, any ordinances and certificates that needs to be made.
