Hi I'm Elder Vaivela

I was born and raised in Tonga. I'm serving a full time mission in California Arcadia Mission. I am a covert and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Tonga, I love play rugby and volleyball. I am a convert to the church of Jesus christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I truly believe that this is the Church that Jesus Christ established during His ministry on Earth. I grew up in my life, I always had a personal questions (for example: why is so many churches? Did God have a plan for me? Etc). I go to church and do all I can do to find the answers for my questions but I can't. The church of Jesus christ of Latter Day Saints gave me an answers to all the questions that I had, and I came to know this is only true church here on earth by praying, study and go to church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be a good example (1 Timothy 4:12) be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. I live my faith by serve others, I do all I can do to help others that they come to know for themselves that our Father in Heaven loves us. I have act on these opportunities and it feels good, and I can feels God hands in my life.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Elder Vaivela
The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus is the Christ, he is the son of God. The Book of Mormon help us that we can know God speak not spoke, he is not was. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of them he name was Lehi. He lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded him to lead his family and small group of people to the promise land (American Continent). God continued to call prophets to lead and guide them. The prophets knew about our Heavenly Father's plan for his children and the mission of our Savior Jesus Christ. They recorded that Jesus Christ appeared to the people here in America after his Resurrection and teach about his gospel and formed His Church. The Book of Mormon contains the teachings of our savior, testify about his Atonement and his loves for us. It help support the Bible, Book of Mormon and the Bible they both go hand and hand and testify about Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise to each and everyone of us and to all those who read it and sincerely pray about it, they can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4-5).
