Hi I'm Marian AJ Vailea

I grew up in Tonga.I went to a Mormon High School named Saineha High School..I am a Mormon

About Me

I am 19 years old. I am currently serving a mission in the Florida Tallahassee Mission. My favorite hobbies is playing rugby and dancing hip-hop. I'm attending the University of the South Pacific(USP).

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and being taught by my parents about the principles of the gospel. It really helps me to understand how important and how much God loves me. I had a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I know that through a living prophet I come to know the ways t follow inorder to live together with my heavenly father again. The gospel and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the kingdom of God once again restored to the Earth through Joseph Smith. I know the Priesthood is the power of God and it's true..

How I live my faith

well I am the secretary in the women's organization in my ward...and also the 3 Sunday Relief Society teacher.. not only that I also teach the adult Sunday School. on the other hand I am the representative for my Young Single Adult..

What are Mormon temples used for?

Marian AJ Vailea
Temples are houses of the Lord, the most sacred structures on the earth. Anciently, the Lord directed Solomon to build a temple (1 Chronicles 28:1-6). This temple was a place where God could dwell, was a place of prayer, was a place of sacrifice and was a place where the principle and covenant of sacrifice was fundamental to worship. At the time of the Restoration, the Lord commanded Joseph Smith to once again build temples on the earth. Like ancient temples, today’s temples are also sacred places where God may dwell; they are places of prayer and, although we no longer offer animal sacrifices because that was done away with when Jesus Christ became the Eternal Sacrifice for our sins, the principle and covenant of sacrifice is fundamental to our temple worship. In temples, Church members participate in ordinances designed to unite their families together forever and help them return to God. In the temple, members: ◾Learn eternal truths. ◾Receive sacred ordinances, including those that bind husband and wife together for eternity, as well as join children and parents (Malachi 4:5-6). ◾Provide ordinances such as baptism for those who have died without the opportunity to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:29); 1 Peter 4:6) Show more Show less
