Hi I'm Tapu

I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand. I'm training to be a Cop. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the only child, my dad left when i was around 4 and ever since then its only been me and my mum. Its been hard growing up and not having a dad or the priesthood at home but i wouldn't be able to get through to accomplish so many things without the love and support from my mum and also having the gospel in my life. I love playing sports, Basketball, Soccer, Touch Rugby pretty much anything with a ball. I'm currently preparing to go serve my mission. After my mission my future goal is to become a police office and that one day ill be able to repay my mum for everything she has done for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I live the gospel because it blesses my life, not only mine but my families as well. I continue to follow his gospel because it brings joy, excitement, happiness and peace. I learn more and understand more about my purpose here on earth and my duties i'm meant to fulfill while here on earth. I find that everything that is taught in church is there to help me throughout my life, it is my guideline and my compass to lead me back to his presence. I know that the doctrine that we learn and that the covenants that we keep are true and scared and that if we keep His commandments and endure to the end the gates of heaven will open and He will pour out many blessings upon me and others. I know that Jesus is the Christ and he died for us to open the pathway to repentance. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God, i testify that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that the fullness of the gospel are in it. There are so many things why i keep my faith in this gospel true and pure but theses are the main reason why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love to participate in church activities, love going to youth and completing my personal progress and being able to mix with my age group, teaching one another the standards we should try to live. Working with the Sister Missionaries in our ward, going out to the less actives and inviting them to church or an activity. Teaching someone the whole gospel from scratch and witness the joy that they go through when learning that there is a God and that he loves us. Teaching my primary class every Sunday and putting a smile on there faces.
