Hi I'm Elias Makana Rivera

I am born on raised on the island of Maui in Hawaii. I am a convert to the church.

About Me

Aloha my name is Makana. Some of the hobbies are playing guitar, ukulele, and bass. I also enjoy playing soccer, volleyball, and basketball. I love spending time with family and friends and just enjoy hanging out with others.

Why I am a Mormon

As a convert to the church, i did not attend primary so i did not know a lot about the church when i joined. I joined the church after my grandma past away. Something that really interested me in joining the church was "eternal families". This principal really caught my eye and it truly helped me with the process of losing my grandma.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping with the Young Men program, and the scouting program at my ward.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Elias Makana Rivera
We believe that after our life on earth, we have an opportunity to live with our Heavenly Father. I truly believe that as we live according to the teachings of Jesus Christ, we can not only live with our Heavenly Father for all time and eternity, but we can also live with our families forever.
