Hi I'm Tahir Loy Nin

I grew up in Auckland New Zealand. I am training to become a qualified plumber and gas fitter. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am twenty-two years old. I love to spend my summer at the beach playing sports with others, swimming , catching the waves and being in the sun. I love home baking when I get the free time and watch movies on netflix! I went to Kelston Boys' High School and am a member of the Auckland YSA (Young single Adults) 2nd Ward. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know for myself that God exsists, that the church can help me, because it is God's church! I KNOW that it can help everyone. I KNOW that Joseph Smith is a TRUE prophet of God, and that his experience is true! I know that by following what the Lord wants of me I will be blessed, in ways I need. Over the years since I was a child, I have grown up in the church and learnt the gospel, not really klnowing for myself. But as I grew older, I came to an understanding, that it all is true, through the SPIRIT and prayer. Through small experiences here and there. Through studying the scriptures and asking my father in heaven if or not it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by three simple steps that help me through the ups and the downs of Life, 1) Pray - I pray daily to my Heavenly Father who loves and hears me. He gives me the confidence that I need to achieve my goals. 2) Read - I read my scriptures which are a set of books from God given to man to help us learn of his gospel and the things that we must do to one day return back to him. I try to read them daily because it helps me understand my purpose and also has many answers to the questions/trials I face in life. 3) Obedience - God has given us commandments. When I obey them, he blesses me. It makes me a light to the world and I see greater health and strength in obeying them. I know Heavenly Father loves me and that he LIVES! He wasnts me to be a P.R.O!

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

Tahir Loy Nin
The Missionaries will share a message that relates to the restoration of the Gospel, about Jesus Christ and his Atonement that he went through for all man, women and children.... They will teach you about the great plan of salvation and about the fact of eternal families. I know that when the missionaries teach, what they say is true and testified of through the Spirit, a testifier of ALL truth. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Tahir Loy Nin
God is our loving heavenly father. He loves us all very much as we are all his children and wants the very best for us. He wants us to one day to return to him. He loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son into the world to go through the atonement. The atonement is when Christ died for us so that we can come clean from sin and be worthy to enter into God's kingdom. He wants us to also have fun, joy in this life as we journey through it.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Tahir Loy Nin
God has called prophets today on the earth to lead and guide us in the right direction. Today the prophet is President Russel M. Nelson. He is assisted by two counselors-- Dallin H. Oaks and Henry B. Eyring. I know that he is called of God. Every 6 months we get to listen to our prophet and hear councel and advice that we need in our lives. Show more Show less
