Hi I'm Tony Ngalu

Born and raised in Kahuku,Hawaii. And I'm a proud member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I chose to be.

About Me

I'm perfectly imperfect. But I'm a child of God. I love my family. Especially my older brother with special needs who's one year older than me. He is truly a blessing to me and my family. I'm the youngest out of us four boys. I love spending my free time with my brother. Even though he was born with disabilities, he teaches me A LOT about being merciful, charity, and forgiveness. He's the glue that holds our family together. Through my brother I can relate a lot to the love that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for us his children. And I'm forever grateful to be blessed with an older brother like him. Because of my brothers examples to me, he's motivated me to be better than I was before. And I've made it a goal to try my best to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that one day we can live eternally forever jus like how we live together here on earth. I make a lot of mistakes. But I'm not gonna give up trying to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ by striving to "Choose The Right".

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a firm testimony that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live!! And that they hear and answer prayers. I know that for a fact! And I know that The True Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored here on earth through Joseph Smith who was called by God to be a Prophet. I know that's true. This church is run by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. And they have called prophets and other church leaders this day to help us live and follow the gospel. And I KNOW that's true. And I know that the Book Of Mormon that Joseph Smith Translated is TRUE! It has blessed me with a closer relationship with Heavenly Father And Jesus Christ. I've felt the peace and the spirit so strong everytime I read it. Being Mormon makes me different from the world. Even though I live in it, it makes me feel like I'm out of it. It doesn't make me feel cool, it makes me feel TRUE. I love it, and Imma keep trying to Live it!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by reading the scriptures and try to live it, talk to my Heavenly Father everyday through prayer, and try to attend church every Sunday and try to fulfill my calling in the Branch. And also by trying to keep the commandments that The Lord has given us here on earth through living Prophets. My faith of being a "Mormon" is unbreakable. I'm not a perfect example in the community nor am I trying to be. I'm just trying to be better than how I used to be. I've come a long way BecauseOfHim through the power of prayer and the miracles of forgiveness. I try to share my experiences with my branch family at the branch I try to attend every Sunday. A branch that I've come to love: Sunset Beach YSA Branch- and also with those I come in contact with no matter if I'm at work, school, home, or even if I'm on the internet (Facebook, etc.) Even though it makes me look weird or feel uncool, unwanted, I share my experiences because I've felt the peace and comfort the Gospel gives me and I want others to have the same experiences as they try to live the gospel. And when I try not to do some of the things that the people I'm around are doing because I'm trying to live my faith, I feel left out most of the time but I know it's the right thing to do. It's hard for me because im mostly around people I love. There are times they think I'm trying to be better then them. But I'm not. I know myself. I know what I been through. And I don't want to go through all of that again. Living my faith helps me to make right choices because I've made A LOT of bad choices in the past. It also helps me strive to move forward in life with the help of The Lord. I'm not trying to forget about the people I love. I'm just trying to always remember Him(Jesus Christ) and to forever be grateful for the atoning sacrifice that He did for each and everyone of us which makes it possible for all of us to humble ourselves before God and be forgiven of our everyday sins through sincere repentance.
