Hi I'm Mahndoh

I live in Kiribati on the island of Tarawa at the village Buota and I have two brothers and two sisters with our parents.

About Me

I am a daughter of such great parents who are also a member of this church.I just graduated from high school at Moroni High School last year and I studied science in agriculture and biology. I wanna become a veterinarian and for this I wanna study at the BYU at Hawaii after I done my missionary work in the Phillipines for the upcoming 18 months.I really love going out with my families and friends and always like swimming.My favorite movie are cartoons and funny movies and I really like singing of uplifting songs and love songs.My favorite food is bakery breads in any kind and what I love in the church activities is family activity.And lastly about myself I hate being alone.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful to share what I have gone through in this life before I did enter this church. Honestly,I was adopted by these great parents namely Roteti and Erinna. Roteti is a member of this church and he is also a returned missionary but he is not my real uncle. His wife Erinna is my biological aunt she is the sister of my real mother who died and she is a catholic christian woman. So when they take me and my older brother in at their home they also had adopt three more kids with us and that makes us five.They are so good that they just take care of all of us as their own children because they have no children of their own.Since then as I was growing I always went with my father to church at the latter day saints but later on my grandfather frommy mom side came in and live with us.He is also a catholic and guess what happened he take me back to a catholic and forbid me to go with father Roteti. I was so sad then but after years pass by started from last year my mother died and my father asked me if I could join the church so what, I just say yes and their I start teaching by the missionaries and from my own experience I just came to believe that this church is a true church and this I believe by seeing such spiritual example my father and his new wife namely Kamumuna whose also a returned missionary and by their love and sharing the gospel everyday to me and my little brother whose name is Takabwebwe who is his real son with my mother that just passed away.Everyday I just feel that Heavenly father loves me and this reminds me of the hymn entitled I am a child of God.So in my family always asked me to be a missionary and promised me blessing of a happy future therefore I just want this blessing to be mine so I do this choice of being a missionary even though it just a year after my baptism so that I could serve God as soon as possible for his blessings to me by blessing and helping the people of the Phillipines people at the Urdaneta mission with love from God.

How I live my faith

I really like being busy on such callings the church presidency called me for and what I always did is making myself ready with whatever ideas that pops up in my mind after I prayed and these are like focusing on the needs of the women for teaching the women class and game teaching for teaching the primary level and the youth classes.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I believe that their is a living God because whenever I prayed he answered me unknowingly through experiences and sometime straightaway. Show more Show less
