Hi I'm Emile

I grew up in New Zealand but my family and I are Cook Islanders, I'm going to serve my mission in the Philippines and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Ah right now I'm working in Landscaping it's a great job and my boss is pretty cool. Well my hobbies and interests include computing and american football (more a fan than actually playing since it isn't too big in my country). I've got got a pretty keen interest in furniture and cabinet-making I studied it for a year so I have a certificate in that, I'm thinking of pursuing that once I finish my mission which I am leaving for soon (my reporting date is August 1st 2014), going to the Philippines so that's pretty exciting.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I've never been into any real trouble honestly and although I wasn't raised in the church I was still pretty young when I joined (around 10 years old) at that time the things they taught me and the messages they shared to me just seemed . . . right and to make it even better the standards they held we're standards I was already living or we're my ideal standards of living and so I became a mormon and strive to live the things I've learned and share it to those who will listen because everything in my life that has made me happy has in some form or another been due to my affiliation to the church.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith? Well I've learnt alot from my faith and I've gotten alot of good and inspiring experiences for applying the things I've learnt, I've had the oppourtunity to be able to teach primary kids for a few years in sunday school the age group I had was 10 to 12 year olds. I realized during that time how easily kids that age pick things up and although they may seem disinterested sometimes they're able to learn and understand things quite easily, more often than not they show the simplest and direct ways are the best when trying to live the standards of our faith an important lesson they've taught me and one I've kept close to my heart.
