Hi I'm Faleatua Peleuale

I am a Samoa. I went to Samoa College and I grew up in Apia.. I love play volleyball and I'm serving in Sydney mission.

About Me

I come from a family of seven people. I have two brothers and two sisters and Im the oldest. i love to hanging out with my family...

Why I am a Mormon

Because this is the only belief that i found happiness on the earth. when i leave the church for one year and join in the world and i found out that every second of day it always brings up sadness. Love and happiness is found when family are together forever..

How I live my faith

WAS HE WINNING OR WAS HE LOSING?... ARE YOU WINNING OR ARE YOU LOSING??? When times get especially difficult, I reflect on the last days of the Saviour here on the earth and His ministry. And I reflect often on a picture I had in my room of the Saviour on the cross between the two thieves and the people below observing the situation. And I would reflect on this picture and I would look at the soldier, some looking up at Him intently, one bored to be there. Some appeared to be Scribe and Pharisees wondering about this Jesus they had heard about . And some were His disciples around him or in the distance, possible thinking maybe they shouldn’t get too close. Probably kneeling at his feet is Mary, his mother, and maybe a little distance away is Mary Magdelene. Off to the side are others wondering who this man is. Then I look up at the Saviour on the cross and think of the words in Matthew 27:46 where it is in the ninth hour, close to His death and He calls out, “My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?” After I would ponder over that, I would say to myself, “Was He winning, or was He losing?” and I would look at the people below and to most of them, he probably was losing. Neil Maxwell gives a wonderful talk where he says that this might have been the single moment when the Saviour might have been left alone. That although He was a God and one with God His Father and the Holy Ghost, that for a moment He was left to feel abandoned and alone. And then Elder Maxwell repeated the words that the Saviour said in the ninth hour, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” I am certain, that the Father beheld all of this. And I though, I want to be able to be happy like my Father in Heaven and try to be able to understand things though His eyes. How could He behold His Son suffering so much. But if you look through the eyes of our Heavenly Father, He had never been more successful, more obedient to His commandment than ever before.
