Hi I'm Soteria Fetalaiga

I was born in Samoa, grew up in New Zealand. I love my family and friends. I'm a convert and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Samoan, I grew up in Samoa for the first ten years of my life and then moved to New Zealand. My parents sacrifice their beloved home so that my siblings and I can have a better future; for this reason I have always value hard work, sacrifice and most importantly education. In December, 2013, I was able to fulfill my parents sacrifice by graduating with a Bachelor of Business, majoring in Economics and Marketing. I am now enrolled in an Honours programme for Marketing. I thought that would've been the best thing to have happened to me but deciding to follow the example of Jesus Christ and being baptized in 2012 was one of the best thing to happen. Entering the temple for the first time, receiving my call to serve in the Marshall Island were also other highlights that eclipse anything that I've ever done with my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptize and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in May, 2012. I face many trials and challenges, some so strong that my faith was tested and I wanted to leave the church, but knowing that the Holy Ghost testified of a loving and living Heavenly Father and the redeeming power of the Atonement through Jesus Christ, I held on to what I knew to be true. I am now preparing to serve the people of Marshall Island for 18 months of my life, I know this is where Heavenly Father wants me to go.

How I live my faith

By putting the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ above all else, including myself, family and friends (well that's what I'm striving to do on daily basis but some days are better than others). Also by follow the prompting of the Holy Ghost (again. some days are better than others).
