Hi I'm Vini

I was born in USA, adopted and raised in New Zealand. I have been called to serve a Mission in Honduras and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am half Samoan and half Hispanic, and was born in USA . I was adopted from my aunty and grew up mostly on my Samoan side . I love everything about my Samaon side especially the food the culture and the big families we have . I love that i live in the country of New Zealand because i feel its one of the safest places in the world. I am currently preparing to serve my mission in Honduras in the San Pedro Sula West Mission in the Spanish language which i find a big blessing from the lord because i am able to learn the language and possibly the culture of my roots .

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful for the opportunity that i have to share my testimony to all of you out there . I do believe with all my heart that is is the only to true church upon the earth i know this to be true because of the many miracles that have happened within the church . I also know that all the prophets from Joseph Smith down to our current prophet Thomas.S.Monson were and are called by our loving Heavenly Father to lead us and to help us struggle i know this is true because they are able to receive revelation from him. I am currently reading the book of Mormon and i know that everything i have read is truly a testimony if Jesus Christ . I love the Church and i love the people that are within the church because of the love and faith they have for the Father in Heaven. I know without a doubt in my heart that i was called by God to serve a mission in Honduras and bring our lost brothers and sisters to the fold to come and to know about the love we all have for Heavenly Father . I love family and i love our Heavenly Father for bring my here to earth and to have w body of flesh and bones . I KNOW ALL THESE THINGS TO BE TRUE , In the name of Jesus Christ , Amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently a active member in the church . I always participate in church activities that i enjoy a lot and especially enjoy spending time with the YSA . I was called as a YSA Rep and was grateful for the opportunity to serve the lord but i was also released due to my calling to serve the lord as a full time missionary. I love to attend Preach My Gospel class because it will help me better prepare myself to be a effective missionary as well as helping me wake up early in the morning . I am grateful for my family and that i was brought up into the church .

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

We baptize our new members because it shows that they have true faith that the Church is the one and only true gospel on earth as well as showing there love for our Heavenly Father . Getting Baptized means that all your transgressions before being baptized will be washed away and that you are in a clean state. it also shows that you are willing to make a promise which we call a covenant to live as Jesus Christ and his disciples did when they were upon the earth. if we keep our promise to become a follower of Christ the Lord will keep his promise to forgive us of the many wrong choices that we make in life. Jesus Christ set the example for us to be baptized as he willingly got baptized himself in the river Jordan. Show more Show less
