Hi I'm Asenahana

I was born and raised in New Zealand and am serving a mission in the Philippines Angeles Mission. I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving in the Philippines Angeles Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but I feel like everyone who was born in the church will come to a point in their lives where they have to choose to continue to be Mormon. For me it came gradually. As a child I learnt of the Saviour and his ministry and I innocently accepted it all. However as I grew older I began to question. Through seeking for the truth I was lead to answers that helped me to understand just what sacrifices our Saviour made for us. I began to develop a deep appreciation and love for His gospel. I knew that I wanted to follow him. I knew that I wanted to be just like him. All I had to do was find out if being a Mormon would draw me closer to Him. So I began a serious personal study of the Book of Mormon. After reading the Book of Mormon from cover to cover I prayed and asked to know if what I had read was true. Nothing came. I was confused, but I kept studying and pondering. A few days later in a conversation with other Church members I found myself testifying of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and as soon as the words left my mouth I felt the warmth of the Spirit and felt it testify that what I had shared was true. My choice to continue being a Mormon has enriched my life. It has taught that me that I have purpose. I have potential. It has taught me that when I screw up I can wipe the slate clean. It has taught me so much whilst continuing to invite me to "Come unto Christ".

How I live my faith

The Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches that we ought to follow in the example of our Saviour. Jesus Christ's character always looked outward, and so I try to live my faith by serving others like our Saviour did throughout His life. I live my faith by trying to live selflessly.
