Hi I'm George Ngatuvai

Provo is the the place I call home. Fast food connesuer & lover of sports! You name it and 99% chance I'm not good at it!

About Me

My name is Siaosi (George) Misiona-I-Moana Ngatuvai. I am a returned missionary from the land of flowing potatoes also known as the Idaho Nampa Mission and I am currently a student at Snow College! I have 1 younger sister and 3 older brothers. Sepi and Pakineti Ngatuvai are the ones I call parents and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm a proud Tongan. My dad is from Vava'u and my mom is from 'Eua. Family is First & has been from the start. Then Utah Football, Utah Jazz and Steeler Nation is thrown somewhere in the mix. Heavenly Father blessed me with a pretty solid support system. You call them first or second cousins, I call them my brothers and sisters. Family time is my FAVORITE time as my ideal vacations are visiting my cousins across the country and spending time with them! I LOVE TO WATCH AND PLAY Football, Basketball and Volleyball. Watching the Summer Olympics is a must in my household and visits to the nearest buffet are frequent. I love to eat! My mom is the world's greatest chef! She keeps me well nourished! Anything that involves food, I'm there! Hanging out with family and friends is what I like to do most. Music sounds best in reggae. Watching movies is an art and McDonald's is my Garden of Eden! A big dream of mine is to open up an all you can eat Mcdonald's buffet one day! ( after I decide which specific career I want to pursue in the medical field).

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed enough to be born in the church. I was even more blessed to be born of such great parents who raised my siblings and I in the church. Through my primary years, and early part of Deacon years, I was living life on a borrowed testimony- my parents testimony. I am very grateful for their strong and firm testimony because it served as a crutch for me to find my own testimony. I wanted to find out for myself if the the church was actually true. I heard my parents say it, my bishop say it, and everyone else say it in testimony meetings. My parent's example of living like Christ motivated me to do the same. Watching my parents go to stake temple night every week motivated me to live worthy so that someday I may enter the temple as well. Reading my scriptures, fasting, paying tithing, prayer, trying to serve everyone all around me and doing what's right kept me on the path to receiving my temple recommend. I remember the first time I went inside the temple as a Deacon with my ward for a Young Men/ Young Women's combined activity. We performed baptisms for the dead. The spirit was so strong and thats when I knew the church is true. The spirit confirmed to me the truthfulness of the gospel. Ever since that day, that testimony has kept me going. I've had some ups and downs in my life but so has everyone else. My testimony of Jesus Christ has kept me anchored down in this windy world. One day I was driving home with my mom and I said to her, "I wonder what it would be like to be rich. It must be nice." She looked at me and said, "We may not be rich in money but we're wealthy in blessings." As I look back, I wouldn't change my life for the world. The comfortable life I live was a result of living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I've truly been blessed with the BEST. Why not share it? Because of my testimony, I have chosen to serve a full time mission.

How I live my faith

It all boils down to the famous question that the great Madea asked her daughter Kora, "What Would Jesus Do?"

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

George Ngatuvai
Anyone can enter the temples but we all have to follow certain steps to do so. Being baptized by the authority of the Melchizedek priesthood into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the first step. As we follow the example of Jesus Christ in keeping the commandments and doing our best in helping our fellow man, it qualifies us to enter into the temples to make more promises with Heavenly Father and be sealed to our families for ALL TIME AND ETERNITY. As we follow the counsel in 2 Nephi 28:30, it will prepare us for what God has to add to what we already have! "..thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom.” A temple recommend, a piece of paper that allows you to enter the temple, represents the Christ-like life you are trying to live. It is often mistaken that only the perfect are allowed in the Temple. It is not the case because NO ONE is perfect in this life. Saints who are allowed in the temple face the same trials and temptations like everyone else in this world. The only difference is that they are trying to be better followers of Jesus Christ than they were the week before. They are constantly striving to be better. We all know that we won't reach perfection in this life but the fact that they are always trying their best is all that matters. Show more Show less
