Hi I'm Samo

I'm from Laie Hawaii, and am going to serve as a missionary for the Church in Northern Italy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated High School. Before going to college I'm going to serve a mission for the Mormon church, for two years. I really enjoy academics, and hope to become a lawyer. I can't claim to be talented in any sports, but I enjoy basketball and football, both to watch and to play. I have sung my whole life in various choirs as a bass but wish I was a tenor. I also drum in a band with some of my friends. We play rock, pop, indie, and whatever new style we can. Life on the North Shore is beautiful but I'm happy to give t up to serve my Heavenly Father as a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe it makes me happy, but not in an indulgent way. Rather, it helps me to find lasting peace and balance in a modern world so full of instant gratification.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since birth. When this is the case, one might wonder how to keep a religion from becoming commonplace, or how to remember and keep its effects on their life. I live my faith by visiting widows in the ward monthly with my dad. We've done this since I was a little boy, and Otha's been amazing to witness how much good we are capable of. I have also seen how my peers lives have changed when they have lived by what the church teaches.
