Hi I'm Elder Anthony 'Iongi

I love Rugby, Football, Family, and my culture. Oh yeah and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California but I was raised in beautiful Portland Oregon. I play rugby and love music. Before I get you all riled up, I only play the ukulele and I enjoy singing although i can't carry a note. I attended Western Oregon University for about a year before I decided to serve a mission for the church. I am currently serving in the Milwaukee Wisconsin mission. I'm a visa missionary (meaning i don't have a visa for my original call) and will be eventually serving in the Sao Paulo East Brazil mission. Oh yeah and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the only church I can honestly say has the fullness of the Gospel. I believe that this church is truly Christs church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving the Lord on a full time 2 year mission. And let me tell you, when you are on a mission you live the LDS faith to the fullest.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Elder Anthony 'Iongi
Personally, I feel at peace when i study the scriptures. They help me keep my life in harmony with the teachings of Christ, and what I really love about the scriptures is that they all testify of Christ. Mormons have the Book of Mormon and we don't hold it higher than the Bible, but we believe that they are comparable. In Moroni 10:3-5, Moroni (a prophet in the Book of Mormon) challenges the reader to ponder the words and then to pray with a sincere heart if its true. As you read the scriptures and pray, you will feel the influence of the spirit in your life and the joy it brings Show more Show less
