Hi I'm Mele

I grew up in Hawai'i. I study Accounting at BYU Provo. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Mele and I am the 3rd oldest of 11 children. I was born and raised on the islands of Hawaii. Growing up surrounded by water has definitely impacted the love I have for swimming and water polo. I enjoy camping and hanging out with my siblings (all 10 of them). I go to college at Brigham Young University- Provo where I am studying Accounting. I am currently preparing to serve in the Portugal Porto Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon and continue to follow His gospel because it has brought me and my family many blessings. I also love this gospel because it helps me to become a better person and try my hardest every day. I have learned to always make improvements and to just have charity, the pure love of Christ, wherever I go. This gospel is kind of like the missing piece in my life and makes everything else make sense. It helps me in every aspect of my life. I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and for His Atonement that allows me to improve and try again each and every day.

How I live my faith

My most recent calling was a ward greeter where I stood at the church doors and welcomed everyone. I loved meeting new people each week, smiling, and making others feel loved.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

In order to further understand why Mormon missionaries proselyte, think of your favorite candy in the whole world. It is so delicious, but your friends and family have never tasted it before. They always wonder why you are so happy, but they don't understand why. Of course, you want them to share in the deliciousness of your candy too! This is like the gospel. Mormon missionaries have something that brings them SO much happiness to their lives that they want to share it with you! Show more Show less
