Hi I'm Cindy of Monterey Tuivailala

I come from the land known for its long white clouds, Aotearoa and I am a mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 7 and the very first to serve a mission. I was born in Monterey, Ca but grew up in Mangere, Auckland, NZ. Moved back to the states when I was ten where I graduated from hs and attended San Jose State University. Got my first job at the movie theater where i got to watch movies and eat popcorn for free. Decided at 19 that i'd like to go on a mission and a few months later I got my call to the Florida Jacksonville Mission. Kissed my family goodbye December 2, 2015 It's been real but Ill see yall in 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the covenant, both my parents were converts and I am forever grateful to them and their faith. I wasn't until I was a little older that I finally recognized how important the gospel is to my life. I am a Mormon because I love my father in heaven and his beloved son Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I choose to follow in his footsteps. I am a Mormon because I want to be, and if you don't know now you know.

How I live my faith

I just strive each day to be better than I was yesterday.
