Hi I'm Amataupu Faaofo

I love to DANCE, I'm from SAMOA and I'm a MORMON

About Me

I am about to go on my mission, at Salt Lake City west Mission in UTAH... I love reading books, dancing, sewing, cooking and singing. i was a 4 year graduate from seminary and also an institutes graduate. I am so easy to get along with, and mah friends and famz loves to call me Shorty.. I'm from the beautiful island of Samoa, where everything is pretty including the people..:)

Why I am a Mormon

My mother baptized in the church when we're young, and that's why I and some of my siblings baptized in the age of 8. I always says that this is the true church, but I always have a lot of doubt about Joseph Smith. I love going to church, reading scriptures, prayed and attend church activity, but still I didn't have a strong testimony. Growing up my mom told us to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it, then after high school, one of my institute teacher invite me to do the same thing. I felt the spirit so strong that this is something I have to work on. I testify with all my heart that I now have a testimony of Joseph Smith and this restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Because I pray about it and the Holy Ghost reveal the truth unto myself. And because I have a testimony I decided to serve a mission:):)

How I live my faith

i live my faith by helping others to come unto christ.i am a secretary for woman society in our ward and a teacher in sunday school class for year 13-14, also am a visiting teacher in our ward, and was a teacher in primary as well. Throughout my time in the youth, I was always a president in beehive, miamaid, and laurels. Being a leader and an example to other young womens like me was an act of service for them and for my Savior Jesus Christ. I love to serve the Lord by serving others, service is a huge thing in my life, and it's another way of bringing people closer to our Heavenly Father. Another way I live my faith is through prayer and I do have a gift of prayer. Because of that I pray for everyone that I came in contact with or see. Even people walking on the street, on the bus, at the airport or anywhere who seems sad or need help. I believe in prayers and I testify that God does answers our prayers and do want to hear from all of us.. Being real to everyone is another way of living my faith, and that's why I'm always chilled or maybe I'm trying to..lol..

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Amataupu Faaofo
The Atonement of Christ is a sacrifice that our lord Jesus Christ had prepared for us. I testify that through the Atonement of Christ we can all be cleanse from our mistakes through repentance, it can heals us from our guilt, from our sorrow, feeling of anger and hatred, and it made it possible for all of us to return back and live with our Heavenly Father again. I know that because of he's Atonement I can try again, I can make correction in my life, I can repent everyday and I can improve myself each day.:) Show more Show less
