Hi I'm ANDREW

Born & raised in American Samoa. Converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ 2009. I am a Mormon. I love to play volleyball and read.

About Me

I love to grow plants especially lucky bamboo. Nature fascinates me because of its beauty and because of its resilience. I love to read books when I am not doing anything or watch a good movie or t.v. I love to spend time with my family. My favorite sport to play is volleyball and hurdling is also fun. Learning new things is fun for me especially things of the gospel. I was born and raised in American Samoa, but I have lived in the U.S. for more then half my life. My parents are divorced and so I have a stepdad and I live with my mom and stepdad. But I just call him my dad. Law interests me but I think I want to become a business man. I am an only child and so some people think I am a spoiled brat but I don't think so. I have two half brothers and two step siblings. I am half korean, half samoan.

Why I am a Mormon

After the lessons with the missionary I knew in my heart that this church was true. Although I didn't know much about the gospel, it still felt right to join. I didn't know what that feeling was but now after much pondering and six years later I now know that that feeling was the Holy Ghost. And still after much pondering I realized that God answered my prayers. Because I remember being a 9 or 10 year old little boy asking "why is there so many churches?" And in 2009 God answered that question for me and told me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is his gospel. I am a Mormon today because it makes me happy. The knowledge that I have of the Gospel has kept me strong in my faith. I have continually heard negative things about the church but I realized those things do not matter. Only things that pertain to my salvation should matter. And the things of God will never change.

How I live my faith

I have had callings as a secretary and as a counselor in my Deacons, teachers and priests class. I am living my faith now as I have been called as a servant of the Lord to serve in the Canada, Vancouver mission. I live my faith by trying to be a good person every day of my life. I fail at times but I know I can always pray to my Heavenly Father for forgiveness. I live my faith by staying faithful in the gospel, by going to church, sustaining my local leaders and General Authority. I live my faith by trying to read my scriptures everyday and praying every day. I live my faith by trying to give whatever money I have in my wallet if I see them on the street.
