Hi I'm Samson Pierre Tai

I'm a football player, laker fan, oldest of 7, and motivated for success. Oh and I think I'm a mormon

About Me

I am the oldest of 7! Real big momma's boi! Football was life for me until I decided to serve a mission. I am currently serving to be exact in Anchorage, Alaska. Love this BIG small place. I dont know what my calling is here, but I strive to be one of the greatest people who have ever lived.

Why I am a Mormon

Well long story! But my momma was not active and she would make us go to church so grandma didnt get mad at her. When my grandma passed in 2008 we thought we would give it a try for ourselves. I mean thats all she ever wanted. I gained a testimony of the happiness and spirit you feel when around anything that has to do with the church! Now I'm learning even more "line upon line precept upon precept" but I will never forget why I'm mormon. All because of Toakase Maka'afi Fine my grandma. Ofa Lahi Atu Grandma...

How I live my faith

I was raised in the Church and I am so grateful that I was taught the the Doctrines and Principles as I was growing up. Throughout my life I never really knew for myself if the church was true. I never took the opportunity to find out for myself. It was obvious to see the blessings that my family received from the Gospel, but I never really lived my life in a way that was pleasing to the Lord. But through time and experiences, I came to find out the truthfulness of this Gospel for myself. Prayer is the most important way to find out the answers in life. The Holy Ghost testifies of all truth and I have seen the amazing miracles that have strengthened my testimony. I know that the Gospel has been restored through a Latter-Day Prophet and that we have the fullness of the Gospel here today. Yes, I was raised in the church, but I had to find out for myself if it was true. I did and now it all makes sense and I know exactly who I am, what my purpose is in life, and where I will go after this life. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ, along with the Bible, and can guide us in these last days to prepare us for the second coming of our Savior. I Know God lives and that his son died for us. He has offered a plan for us to return to live with him and receive the wonderful gift of Eternal Life!
