Hi I'm ViVi or Sister Tansakul

I am a Mormon.

About Me

Sawaddee Kha everyone! My name is ViVi or Sister Tansakul. I'm from Thailand and I'm now a full-time missionary! I'm assigned to Sydney, Australia Mission, Madarin Speaking. I'm Chinese but was born and raised in Thailand. I love art and nature. I enjoy singing and making more friends. I love helping and serving others. The goal of my life is to go back to the God and say " I have done everything in that life, serving Thee, obeying Thee and helping thy children to come back unto Thee." I love my mission. This moment is the most wonderful and valueable time in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I used to be a faith destroyer. I believed in nothing but myself. I eventually joined the church because the nice and kind missionaries invited me to. Later on I chosed to go to school in BYU-Hawaii. At that place I have learned the things that I had never expected to know before. I used to work at the Polynesian Cultural Center as a Tour Guide and got chance to get to know and serve people from all around the world. It slowly changed my life. One day, the most depressing moment in my life happened. I did not know who to turn to. I couldn't sleep, eat or even study. I was so afraid to ask for helps from others coz I knew that I'd never done anything good for them. I was embarassed to do so. However, even though I had never asked for it, They came. All friends came to me and took care of my broken soul. I was so impressed by how amazing they were. I asked myself, what would it be if this same thing happen to me again but in the place without the Gospel? My answer was I would rather commit a suideside or stop schooling & go back to Thailand. They helped me get through those sorrows. But deep in my heart I still didn't trust this church. I told myself " maybe they are just nice or maybe they are pretending " Time passed and those sorrows came back again..This time it was horrible. I decided to pray. 1st time, praying from my heart. However, I still couldn't feel the spirit. As a fool teenager, what should I do? I have heard that the temple is the place where God dwells. I know that I never had faith before and I deserved to be abandoned by God. But I really did need help. 4 O'clock in the Morning, I walked to the Laie Temple. I prayed to God outside the fenses. I asked him to mercy me and take away these burdens. Right after I opened my eyes, all pains, tears and sorrows were ALL gone. After 3 months of suffering and trying to find the way out, that one pray has completelty changed my life. I know that God is real coz he has helped and lifted me up.

How I live my faith

I am a convert. I joined the church when I was 17. I had called to be the ward liberian, Primary School teacher and Sauday School teacher. I am now a full-time missionary in Sydney, Australia Mission speaking Mandarin.
