Hi I'm Pele Iongi

I was born and raised in Portland, OR. I am Polynesian, and I come from a big family. I grew up in the LDS church. I am Mormon.

About Me

Well, I am the second oldest of seven kids. There are four boys and three of us girls. My parents were also born and raised in the LDS church. I love to have fun, laugh, sing, dance and just have a good time. I'm outgoing and I love meeting new people! I went to University of Oregon for 1 year so far, studying Business. I love to play volleyball (for fun.. not competition wise) haha. & I absolutely love spending time with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me blessings and happiness! I am so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love my Heavenly Father because he loves me. Unconditionally! I love my Savior, because he died for me. Willingly! And I love this gospel, because when life doesn't make sense or when people/friends change, the gospel remains the same. It's always here for me!

How I live my faith

My favorite place in the whole wide world is the Temple. When life gets hard, when I get stressed out, the Temple is a place where I could go and feel peace. I feel my Saviors love and comfort. I recognize my purpose as a Daughter of God whenever I step foot inside. I live my faith by attending the temple, going to church every Sunday to partake of the sacrament, and keeping the Lord's commandments everyday.
