Hi I'm Sam

I was born and raised in Hawaii. I love to play the guitar and sing, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 and love to sing and play the guitar. I have been called to serve my mission in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo East mission and look forward to serving the people there. My other hobbies also include surf photography, landscape photography, and just the field in general. I also like to play soccer, hang out with friends and one of my personal favorites sleep.

Why I am a Mormon

The message that the church shares on behalf of our Father in Heaven is such a beautiful one and it amazes me everyday the blessings that I have received. I am 19 years old and I choose to go to church and other church sponsored activities because there is a spirit at all of these things that when I have attended other things I could not feel. I choose to be a Mormon because I know the teachings to be true and have a testimony of the Plan of Salvation, the Plan of Happiness and can say that it is a plan of happiness. I love that families can be together forever, and the thought of spending eternity with my future wife.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to be a leader among my peers which I am very thankful for. When people didn't come to events, me and others in positions like mine took it upon ourselves to personally invite them to activities or see if they needed a ride. I also had the opportunity to teach 3 yr olds for several months and then teach 4 and 5 yr olds. So many great opportunities and the crazy thing is that I probably learned more from those children than I was able to teach them. Reading the scriptures, saying prayers, and trying to recognize the blessings that Heavenly Father has given me helps to keep me on the path of righteousness.
