Hi I'm Ta'aumanaia Lesa

Grew up in Provo UT Samoan,I'm serving currently in The Texas Houston East mission Spanish speaking and I love it. And soy Mormon.

About Me

I am Samoan and super proud to be. I am also the oldest of 13 kids which definitely is not the easiest thing but you know we gotta make it work and that's what makes life fun. My family means the world to me. I play all kind of sports but mainly love football and rugby. I graduated from Provo high school and am planning on going back to college to play football after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the church all my life. My grandfather was Methodist but took lessons from the missionaries as a young man back in Samoa and the rest is history. I have personally gained a testimony through reading the Book of Mormon, pondering and praying about it. I chose to serve a 2 year mission when I was little and have made it my goal and realized as I got older that it's because I love the Lord that I was able to choose to serve Him so easily. I know everything about this gospel is true and want everyone to know as well.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a 2 year mission as a representative of the LDS church. I spend these two years preaching Gods word and also giving community service and helping others come unto Christ through baptism and helping other increase their faith in Jesus Christ. There is no greater way I feel to live your faith than to help others find theirs. So if sacrificing 2 years of my life so that others can have a chance at finding the meaning of their lives through me then there is nothing holding me back. I feel like God has given me so much and that by continually trying and striving to live His Gospel in the correct way, living through repentance, and keeping the commandments that I can give a small portion of that which I've been given already right back to Him.
