Hi I'm Andrew Kepo'o

I'm from Hawaii and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was on the wrestling team in my high school, I'm an Eagle Scout, I love to eat, and I love to play paintball.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel. My dad was already a member, but my mom wasn't so when they married my dad converted her and she was baptized. But I've chosen to stay a member of this church because there is no other church quite like this. I know that this church is true and I know that the spirit I feel every time I go to church is the Holy Ghost telling me and assuring me that this is God's true church and that the book I read, The Book of Mormon, is also true and that the people who wrote in it and the experiences they had were real. I've made so many good friends, both in and out of church, because of this gospel. Several months ago I was able to see one of my friends go into the waters of baptism and be made a member of this church and that just makes me all the more happier.

How I live my faith

I'm a primary teacher for the 4-7 year olds in my ward, I've taught the youth, and I'm also a Webelos den leader for my ward.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

They use it to construct new chapels and temples, fund the missionary program, and to prepare materials for classes. Show more Show less
