Hi I'm Brandee Cuthers-To'o

I grew up in New Zealand, I have been called to serve in the Louisiana, Baton Rouge mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was baptized when I was 10, and my family and I started going to church. My mother was inactive and became active when my papa visited from the cook-islands and encouraged us to go to church. I am a passionate netball player, and have been playing since I was 8. I represented my suburb, Mangere, for a while. In 2010 my family and I moved to Brisbane, Australia, to start a new life. I have studied Business at Griffith University and am now an educator at Rochedale Outside school hours care. In less then 30 days I will be leaving to serve and 18 month mission, as a representative of Our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be and continue to be a Mormon because it has brought nothing but joy and eternal happiness into the life of my family and I. I will never have no where to turn too. The church of Jesus Christ will always be open to me and anyone else who needs somewhere to go and find comfort. By being a member of his church I am able to know who I am, a daughter of God, who's worth is far beyond rubies. The church is not for perfect people, it is a hospital for the sick and afflicted, to come together and be perfected in him. I love this gospel with every fibre of my being, and I hope that you can one day feel the same way. I promise that you WILL be blessed by, not only, being a member of his church, but by wanting to change through Christ. I love you and I leave these few words with you in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.,

How I live my faith

I don't currently have a calling in the church but I do go out and visit some members that myself and my companion have been assigned to visit. Being able to visit sisters is very uplifting and it helps the sisters know that they have someone to call when they need help or just someone to talk too. My ward, as well as others, are able to do a variety of service projects for one another. This includes mowing lawns, wiping windows, weeding gardens, babysitting and a lot more. I personally go out with the sister missionaries sometimes and we frequently look for opportunities to serve within the community.
