Born and Raised in Hawaii. Called to Serve in the Australia Sydney Mission. I Love Making people Smile. I'm a Happy Mormon.

About Me

Hey! I am Sioeli Sauati Lavulavu. I am Full Polynesian(Tongan,Fijian,Samoan). I am the youngest of four kids, and not spoiled. I have two loving parents that raised me to work hard. I love love love to make people smile or laugh, or at least i try to. I LOVE having fun, and doing awesome stuff. I do start off a bit shy if i'm new, but eventually i warm up! I've played rugby, soccer and track and field. I Love to draw, surf, carve, pretend like i can dance and help others. I've been dancing all my life and two of my jobs are dancing jobs, so maybe one day if you visit Hawaii you might see me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, because i have come to know the Truth through prayer, studying, and experiences. This Gospel has brought me much Happiness and understanding. When i was younger i wasn't really on the right path and i liked to get into trouble because of influences around me. After getting into trouble many times i attempted to change but it was too hard at first. I would pray and plead to feel clean and good again. Then I remembered this one day i heard a talk from my uncle in church and he spoke about forgiveness and how the lord is so forgiving. I Learned about the power of Repentance and how it is such an amazing blessing! Through the Power of Repentance I was able to feel clean again, and to be able to get all that burden off my shoulders, and to get back on that path of Striving to be more like Jesus Christ. A wise man once told me " You don't have to be perfect, but as long as you are sincerely trying your best to be, then the lord will be pleased." So i was thinking "alright sweet." That day i spoke to my friends and made a promise to myself and to Heavenly Father that i would follow his teachings. To this day, i still strive to keep the promises i have made with my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by trying being an example at all times. As many know, people tend to learn more by observing others. The Gospel teaches me to always be an example no matter if you think no one is looking. I have learned to be an example by following the examples of my family members. They lived the gospel, and always showed me how i can too. Another way i live my Faith is by sharing what i know to be true with Others! I love everyone and to me i would not hide what i know to be true from you. The Happiness and Joy i feel is not something i want to keep just for myself, i want to share it with all of You! Because i know it can bless your lives as well.
