Hi I'm Liana Mahina

I'm full Tongan,Loud & Proud!Currently serving a mission at the California Los Angeles Mission.I love the gospel and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am just an ordinary Tongan girl. I was raised by goodly parents. I am so bless to have a loving family who loves me so much am bless to have two older brothers and one older sister. I am the youngest in my family and I love being the youngest:) I love music, dancing, hanging out with friends and top of that..I LOVE FOOD !! I eat to live and live to eat that's how I see it :) By the way I love to laugh and joke a lot and basically just TALKING !!!! I can be too noisy but that's life for me ! Born and raised in the beautiful Kingdom of Tonga known as the Friendly Island (Paradise). I am proud of my identity and who I am...Been a MORMON right from birth and I am rooting for my faith. My life and my world revolved around the gospel and my family. I am currently away from home for 18 months serving a voluntary mission for the Church in the California Los Angeles Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I AM NOT PERFECT !! Knowing my flaws made me appreciated why I am a Mormon though there are tons of reason why I am a MORMON and I don't need to question my faith, it is TRUE and that is enough for me !! It is the Savior's Church restored by Him, it is an active faith and most importantly it offers me an opportunity to reach out and do good in blessing the lives of others ! By doing these simple things, we can all come to know that this is the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ. The secret for receiving a confirmation of it's truthfulness is asking Him directly !!God is the ultimate source of truth and I have received a confirmation of the truthfulness of His Church the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ! I love it and I live it : ) Through constant reading, studying and praying about the Book of Mormon, I have gained a testimony and become converted to the Lord ! I was born into the gospel but that wasn't enough to say it's the reason why to be a Mormon. Knowing that Heavenly Father has a Plan of Happiness for me and has provided the way to accomplish that plan which is through the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives me the assurance why I am a Mormon !! I know that families can be together forever that we will all return and live together with our Father in Heaven. I know this church is true and it changes and blesses my live! I'm a missionary in California Los Angeles. I loveeeee to serve everyone I see. We're all brothers and sisters so it's a blessing to be here to help bring them the truth. I love the gospel so much and it gives me the desire and motivation to share it with the people around me and that they would be able to receive the blessings that I receive in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in different ways that pleases Father in Heaven, myself, my family and people around me! I have come to find the purpose of life and what I need to do in order to fulfill that purpose and that is exactly the way I live my faith ! I am not perfect and will never ever be but I am truly grateful for the gift of repentance ! I love church callings and I know that there are blessings we entitled to when we are called but they come upon conditions of being faithful and long endurance. The most simple steps I am striving to take every single day to manifest the faith that I have on the Great Redeemer are : PRAYING & SCRIPTURE STUDY !! There is nothing to loose in finding faith and exercising faith !! Though we are not free from trials and tests, we have a purpose to live for. At the moment I am serving a mission to show how I live my faith! Who the Lord calls, He qualifies. There is a way for everyone to participate in the Lord's work, I love teaching and testifying that there is a loving Father in Heaven who truly loves and cares for us. I also love teaching Young Women. Learning comes from experiencing! Despise of our weaknesses, He has promised that if we humble ourselves and have faith in Him, He will make weak things become strong unto us ! Faith will continually GROW as we keep putting GOD TO THE TEST : ) I LOVE THE GOSPEL SO MUCH! :)
