Hi I'm Sione Vaisa Maile Jr.

I'm Tongan. I'm MORMON from Utah and I've been called back to serve in the motherland of Nuku'alofa, Tonga Mission!

About Me

I'm a hard worker who will work until the job is done. I will ask questions so that I understand the situation of any situation so that I know what I am doing is to the expectations for that situation. I'm very out going and open to knew activities of any sort. I love to eat a lot of food. Some of the hobbies I have is that I like to draw, sing, try to play instruments, and go on adventures. My interests are I love to play contact sports like football, rugby, boxing, wrestling. I'm really good at making friends. I pretend that I'm a jokester. I like to put smiles on peoples faces and I like making them happy. I've visited almost every state in the U.S.A. for rugby events due to a family member. I'm going to be attending the University of Utah State in 2 years after my mission. I'm a proud mormon and I'm not afraid to stand up for what I believe in. I love comparing my faith with others who believe in a different religion. I don't disrespect or bash on other religions. I'm open to listening to others in what they have to say about my religion. I'm a friend to all and I don't hate anyone.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church since I came into this world. But my testimony grows from many different wonderful stories and people and opportunities that my Father in heaven has given me. I would not be here if my mother had not decide to be apart of this church when she was 16 yrs. old. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for her love and her strong testimony to help me grow today. Today I live the gospel by trying to live a life as Jesus Christ by being a friend to all and not pushing aside anyone and everyone. I want to include all to make them feel welcome and included in everything and anything about the church or just in any safe and comfortable environments. My testimony grows not only from my mother but from my father as well. He teaches me everyday to not let anyone feel left out and to stand up in what I believe in. He constant teaches me to give more than to take. What I mean in that is like to give my time towards helping others and making them feel good and welcomed rather than me always looking for something in return like a payment of money or food or just any kind of gift. My father teaches me to serve others and to make them feel wanted. I love to see the temple and be able to feel how strong the presence of my Father in Heaven. I love to make others happy and put a smile on their face by just telling them that someone loves them and cares for them.

How I live my faith

I go to a lot of ward activities for the youth and for are ward as a whole. Visiting teaching for me is very fun because I get to know a lot of the members in my ward. I get to see how they are doing and if their family needs help with anything. I am a ward missionary who helps out with the full-time missionary if they need any help going out to visit new members or just visiting new people. I love going out with the missionaries because then I get to contribute to my community and still help out for people who aren't apart of the church and I just love to do service like pulling weeds or mowing lawns or trimming bush or just even helping them unload groceries. I try to have an input in everything that will not only help our ward but help our visitors to keep coming back so that they feel welcomed and having them want to keep coming back.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Sione Vaisa Maile Jr.
To be able to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you have to have a willing desire to become a member. You have to be willing to give up the past and being willing to move forward and try to live the life that god would want you to live. You first have to be willing to be taught about the gospel and what we teach and learn about. As you are taught you will receive a feeling that you've never felt before and this feeling will feel overwhelming and warm and good inside. This will be the Holy Ghost. When you do have these feelings you will become more desirable to learn more. When you gain a strong testimony of his gospel then you will be baptized and become a member of this church.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Sione Vaisa Maile Jr.
The Holy Ghost is a member of the godhead. The Holy Ghost is a spirit who does not have a body of flesh and bone. But he is someone who helps teach us and confirm what is being taught to us is true. He comforts us, he guides us, he helps us make the right decisions. He also helps us feel good inside when we do something well. Show more Show less
