About Me

Currently, serving a Mission in the Vanuatu Port Villa Mission. Born and raised in the Beautiful Island of Matuku Lau in Fiji. I am one of 6 children, 3 of which are brothers and two beautiful sisters. Love my parents to bits; they are amazing and grateful to know that my family is mine for the eternities. I have 4 cute nieces and nephew whom i adore so much. Love meeting new people and getting to know them and love serving others. i love reading good book especially the Book of Mormon. I love playing rugby and Volleyball .not a good cook and baker but i LOVE FOOD.......most of all love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I believe that only this true church can help me and my family enjoy life how heavenly father wants out family to be enjoyed it is by teaching your children to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and follow the teaching of out Savion which enable as to draw near to him also being are Mormon is what I would want my family to be cause the teaching that we Mormon teach is true and no one can make that wrong cause we teach that families can be together and forever for all time and eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching my brothers and sisters who don’t know about this true church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints to come unto Christ and receive the restored gospel that can save families and friends that would want to go back and live with our heavenly father and his begotten son Jesus Christ for all time and eternity.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Paula Taukei
One definition listed for ‘cult’ in Webster’s Dictionary is “a religion regarded as unorthodox.” Since the roots of Mormonism are not a break off from the Catholic or Protestant churches, it is seen by some as “unorthodox.” For example, the LDS definition of the Godhead differs from the Nicene Creed accepted by most Catholic or Protestant churches. The “cult” label is usually applied by Church opponents attempting to criticize or discredit the Church. However, sometimes it’s simply a matter of characterization that has grown up over time by the lack of understanding. Such misunderstandings often vanish when people begin to realize the commonality of what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints really teaches and believes. That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world whom we love and worship. When people begin to see and recognize these things about Mormons, then their opinion of the Church usually changes, and old beliefs are replaced with new understanding. Show more Show less
