Hi I'm Tevita Penisimani To'ia

I grew in Tongatapu. I started primary school when i was four. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am now a prospective missionary. I am called to serve on the New Zealand Auckland Mission and I am leaving to the MTC at exactly one month and five days from now. Looking back to how my life goes since when I was a liitle kid, I can tell how Heavenly Father helps me in many ways. I started primary school when i was four yeas old, not old enough to separate from the side of my parrent and not old enough to take care of myself by my own when I'm alone in school. At the end of each year in each report card day, i remmember that this is a day of sadness and a day of crying because my class and my brothers would make fun of me and my grade that i recieved. I was always called on the third group of the class which is known the poorest people in the class. i remmember one day my father taught me to pray. From that time onward, i pray to Heavenly fo more knowledge and more wisdom. There were no improvement in my study year since first class to fifth class. When i enter sixth grade, things change, i starte to gain more wisdom and i can feel that i have mature mind. At the end of the year when we recieve our grade from our test to enter High School, my mother was so suprise and she cry for how great my mark was. All i know that i work and pray for this for many years and then i recieve what i ask from Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

Answering this question is very easy. The reason why i am a mormon because this is the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and this is the only true church in the whole world. If you want to know if this church is true, read the Book of Mormon, it contain testimonies of Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith and it testifies that this Churh is true.

How I live my faith

I have been called for many callings in my ward. i was first called to be a second counsellor to our aarionic priesthood when i was 18 years old. While i was still a counsellor of the aaronic priesthood i was called by my bishop to be one of his ward clerk. i did many financial works and then after a while of hard working i was released from being a counselor and then called to be a teacher to primary kids from 8 years old to 11 years old. i work very hard for i knoe that eventhough i go through mistakes and go through hard works but i know that God will help me.
