Hi I'm Nofo Moea'i

Samoan, a missionary, a Mormon.

About Me

I like to work, meaning I don't mind getting dirty. Staying active is something I try to do. Sometimes I read, just because reading is fun. Working out and playing sports are always fun. Basketball, football, volleyball, I'll play anything so long as I know the rules. I love to learn. I'm quick to pick up new hobbies. Keeping them is a different story. I'm a bit of a loner, so sometimes I just like to be by myself or with someone I know. I don't talk often, I'm mostly quietly listening. I love music. I'd often sing out loud or hum to myself at random times. I haven't accomplished much that people would notice, but I am currently serving a mission among the people of Lithuania. I consider this choice to serve one of my greatest achievements in life. And it's not even mine! A favorite scripture of mine from the Book of Alma, says: "Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever."

Why I am a Mormon

So my family has been members of the church for I don't know how many generations. I was literally raised by the church. So growing up as a kid, I never really questioned the gospel. My parents take me to church, makes sure I attend classes, and even encouraged me my entire life to go on a mission. It wasn't until my teenage years that I started questioning the church. I still attended, but I had doubts. I would wonder if it really is my decision that I was a member of this church. Whether if it is true. All those thoughts cleared up when I thought about strong converts of the church. They weren't born into the church like me, but they truly believe that it is true. Otherwise, why would they accept it? I sometimes wonder whether their faith is stronger than mine. So with these thoughts, I continue to renew my covenants with God and committed to build on my personal testimony, my personal conversion. Čia mano liudijamas, kad Dievas tikrai yra mūsų Mylintis Dangiškasis Tėvas. O del to, jis siuntė savo Mylimąjį Sūnų, Jėzų Kristų, atlikti Jo Apmokėjimą, kad galėtume turėti galimybę atgailauti ir tobulėti. Jis mirė už mus ir del mūsų. Žinau, kad Jo Evangelija buvo sugrąžinta per pranašą Džozefą Smitą ir, kad turime jos pilnatvę šiais laikais. Viską galime žinoti jei tai tikrai yra, studijuodami Mormono Knygą ir melsdamiesi sužinoti iš Dievo apie jos tiesą. Aš žinau kad ji tikra ir, kad ji liudija apie Jėzų Kristų. Ir tai kodėl esu Mormonas.

How I live my faith

I try to live by example. The more I study and understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the natural it seems to live what I learn. And I've learned a lot and will still continue to do so. The principles that I learn I try to apply. Knowledge is useless if not put into use, and it must be used correctly with righteous intent, and only then will it become true understanding.
