Hi I'm Rita Aumua

I am serving a mission in Dallas, Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

- Samoa born, Hawaii raised - Polynesian Dancer - Volleyball, Basketball, & Softball - The Gospel is RESTORED and TRUE

Why I am a Mormon

Although i was born a member of this wonderful church, i did not always see eye to with its teachings. More often than none i would question the restrictions of us not being able to drink something as small as coffee or wearing our dresses a little bit higher. After careful scripture studies and countless prayers, i found my answer. It is because God said so. At the time that answer was not good enough, but after some disobedience, i learned why God said so. Through this gospel, i learned so much more deeply why i need to be modest, worthy, and obedient. I am a Mormon because i love the peace i get from the teachings i receive. I love knowing that the worth of every soul is great. I love that i know my purpose of being here on earth and i love that i know my Heavenly Father loves me. I have a strong testimony that Jesus is the Christ and that he atoned for our sins. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true and restored church here on this earth and i know that Joseph Smith, the prophet, did receive revelation about the restoration. I believe that all the prophets that followed after him including our living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, are true prophets of God. I know the Book of Mormon to be true and i know it to be another testament of The Bible. I love this gospel and i do not know where i would be today without it. These things i say are true and i leave them humbly with you in the sacred name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I chose to serve The Lord in my youth. Joshua 1:9 - "Be Strong and of a good courage. Be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed for The Lord thy God is with thee whitersoever thou goest" He is with me and He can also be with you if you let him. Contact a missionary near you ;)
