Hi I'm Rosie

"Born and raised in the beautiful island of Tonga! Attended Liahona High School and graduated in 2009. I'm a Mormon. "

About Me

I'm pure Tongan ... I love playing volley I enjoy spending time with my friends and family I like to clean and serve elderly people I love doing service project I enjoy being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint and love to share it with others. I'll be leaving on my mission soon to serve in Texas Houston and I'm so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I actually grew up in the church and so I pretty much had no choice but as I grew older I asked my dad why he was baptised and he shared with me his conversion story in which it changed my whole life. He said that when he was a teenager the missionaries would always visit him. But he was always busy in the bush working to provide for his family. And so one day the missionaries decided to go the bush with him and help him. And so he made a deal with them saying that if they will help him he will feed them but they are not allowed to teach him the gospel. So the missionaries agreed and after a week or so my dad recognised one of the elder wouldn't eat even if they had pig for dinner. And in Tonga having a pig for dinner is one of the best meal ever. So dad asked him why he wasn't eating and he said that he's been praying and fasting for him to someday accept the gospel. And at that very moment my dad felt a warm feeling and he knew for sure that the gospel is true. He wanted to learn more and more and finally he accepted the invitation to be baptised. And just by hearing my dad's conversion story it strengthen my testimony not only about missionary work and the gospel but more importantly about my Saviour Jesus Christ. I know that my Heavenly Father lives and loves us enough to send his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. I love him so dearly. In the name of Jesus Christ , Amen.

How I live my faith

My mum and dad were converted to the church in Tonga and so me and my brothers and sisters were grateful to be raised up in the church. I attended Kolonga 2nd ward in Tonga then moved to Nz and attended Hillary ward. My first calling in the church was to be a staff member in Family History. I was then released and called to be our second counsellor to young women's and I took care of the beehive class. I'm grateful for my calling for it has taught me how to be a better person and also to care and love young people.
