I live in a little town called masterton in the great and wonderful country of New Zealand. being brought up like a pakeha i take pride in my moari culture. Ever heard of the all blacks well im not one of them. I enjoy alot of activities such as sports, gym, and anything thats physical.love to also hang around in the outdoors. I always have a bad habit of joking around and yes i think im funny.

Why I am a Mormon

I never really grew up religious. well i never in a million years thought there was a God.So it was hard for me to understand why people that i knew followed someone you cant even see. One day i really needed to know if there is someone out there that can help me with my struggles.till one day i decided to have discussions with the missionary's. as i committed myself to the things they needed me to do. i listen and i prayed. one day in my shed were no one could see me i sincerely prayed. and i had and over whelming experience that is so hard to describe but it felt good and i felt the spirit so strong.from there i knew heavenly father was there and i could not deny. so i joined and lifes been a blessing since

How I live my faith

currently i have been called to the Hamilton mission. i know its not far from home. But you see how much the gospel blesses your life and to come to know of the truthfulness it brings and how much you feel closer to the savior. Im blessed to be serving because i want everyone i come to know of what makes me happy and to share it with others brings me enjoyment.
