Hi I'm Fe'iloakitohi Heimuli

I love enjoying life no matter the situation! I LOVE my family! I am currently serving the Lord in the Washington Spokane Mission!

About Me

I am half Tongan, and half Samoan. I love playing sports. Some of them are Football, Wrestling, Rugby, and Lacrosse. I love music and play multiple instruments. I try to always be available to help anyone out . I love to learn and try new things. My joy comes from being with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly growing up i thought that i had a firm belief in this Church. As i reached the end of Junior year in High School i began to weaver in my faith. But i finally did as i should have in the past and knelt down to know for a surety if this was the true church. The following months after that prayer were filled with many trials of my faith and i learned that deep inside i knew the answer, and that answer was "YES". I then felt nothing but happiness wherever i went, and something within me wanted others to enjoy that same joy. So i decided to serve a mission and that is where i am right now. Through serving a mission i learned that knowing if this is the true church is only step one. That everything about this Church points towards Christ and how he would have us live our lives. I have a firm testimony that the Book of Mormon is a companion to the bible and it does nothing but bring us closer to our Lord and Savior. We have a living prophet today and he is under the direction of Christ to guide us and help us. The Atonement can heal all things.

How I live my faith

I am serving in the Washington Spokane mission speaking English. I have found joy in serving others. When i read my scriptures i always find direction in life. If anything i have noticed that one of the most important things we need to do is to live the higher law as Christ has directed us in Matthew Chapter 5. My scripture study means a lot to me and i've noticed that humility is the key to learning the mysteries of God. As it directs in the Book of Mormon in Jacob chapter 4. Home teaching is a big part of what keeps our Church on the straight and narrow, because when someone does their home teaching they become an advocate in finding the lost sheep and keeping them in the fold. Something that sticks out to me is how the Church is the same wherever you go, and that people are not perfect but we can all strive to become perfect even as Christ is. Heaven is something that we can live in right here and right now. Those tender moments with family members (or with those that you consider your family) that bring a warmth are a part of Heaven. Or the miracle of a new born child is a part of Heaven. God has placed us here to be happy, so i do my best to be happy! Helping others includes helping ourselves. In many cases we may be tempted to turn away from God, but those are the very moments that we need to turn towards him. As my mother once said, "When life begins to beat you down, that is God strengthening you to receive a higher blessing". When i notice a trial in my path i remember that gratitude is the ingredient to turn it from sour to sweet. Our experiences are only here to teach us how to be what we are meant to be. The commandments are a way for God to provide more blessings. The Atonement is the bridge that allows us to cross over the bottomless pit of despair and grief. The Atonement is Gods way of showing us that he loves us and wants us to return to him. I cannot wait till the moment that i see my Father in Heaven again.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Fe'iloakitohi Heimuli
Joseph Smith was a common farm boy. He was born in 1805. When he was 14 years old he wanted to know which was the true church. So as he was reading in James 1:5 he read "If any of ye lack wisdom, let him ask of God...". So he did as the scripture said and asked of God through prayer. As he did this he experienced what we know as the first vision (referring to the first vision to happen in our days). Christ then called him to be a prophet and through constant revelation he restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ once again with the proper authority of God (or other words, the priesthood).
