Hi I'm Palepa

I love my family & friends. I love playing sports. I love this gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Palepa and I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I've been a member of this beautiful church my whole life. I am Polynesian & I have a big beautiful family to whom I love so much! I enjoy playing all sorts of sports, but my favorite sport is basketball, even though I'm not that good at it. Growing up, my parents have always given us the decision whether we wanted to go to church or not. By the time I got to middle school I stopped going to church & became inactive. Fortunately later in high school, I was blessed with some of the most awesome friends that always led by the best example. I started going to seminary & I loved it so much! When I graduated I went straight to work. Again, I stopped going to church & I had lost focus on the things that I loved so much. My life was consumed by money, greed & the things of this world. My best friend in high school encouraged me to read The Book of Mormon, so I said, "yah, sure" and nodded my head without even knowing that this was going to be the day that my eyes would finally be opened again. That was the day that I had begun to build my foundation upon a rock. As of now, I am preparing myself to become a missionary! I have been called to labor in the Lord's vineyard & I leave my humble testimony with you, that I know that God lives & he loves each and everyone of us. I know that Jesus Christ is our savior and redeemer & through His atoning sacrifice we can all return to live with father again.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it's because I know this church is true. I've been shown so much truths to this gospel that I cannot say the least. I know that Heavenly Father loves us so much that he has prepared a way for us to return back to him. I know that he loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son to die for us. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and I know that he has paid the price for our shortcomings. I know that every single person who's sent to this earth is meant to go back to live in our Father in heaven's beautiful kingdom. *Every member a missionary!

How I live my faith

I am now an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints! I have been called as a nursery leader in my homeward and stay true to my calling. I try to love and serve all those around me in whatever ways I can. I have been called to serve as an ambassador of the Lord and I will go and I will do the things the Lord commands. I look forward to see what the Lord has in store for me for the next 18 months!
