Hi I'm Stefanie

Born and raised in Hawaii. A missionary for the Lord in the Australia Brisbane mission. Enjoying life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. I am of Filipino-Spanish descent. I love nature and the outdoors, especially the ocean. I enjoy swimming, hiking, running, traveling, photography, anything related to music, designing clothes, and spending time with loved ones. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I am an International Relations major with an emphasis in Political Economy. I attended the BYU Jerusalem Center in the spring and summer of 2012. I am currently serving my mission in the Australia Brisbane mission, speaking Mandarin Chinese. I will be serving a full-time mission from August 2013 to January 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel complete being a member of Christ's church. Because of the influence of amazing friends in high school, I was able to become an active member of this church. I was born into the church, but I lived most of my childhood inactive of the church. I did not have purpose and meaning in my life, until I came back to church. This church is everything to me now. I know that this church is true. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know that the Lord wants us to be happy. I know that we have been provided with the fulness of the gospel. I know that we have every reason to be happy because we know how to receive the ultimate happiness. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know that He restored the true church to this earth through the guidance of angels sent by God. I know that the God watches over us. I know that He answers prayers. I know that He cares and loves us.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time servant for the Lord. I will serve people by helping them receive peace, joy, and happiness. I will help bring people to Christ and the fullness of the gospel. I am excited to be an instrument of God to bless the people of Australia.
