Hi I'm Reichel

I am very loud, energetic and outgoing! I love spending time with my family, friends & meeting new people. AND.. YES, I am Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. I am Samoan and, as usual, come from a very big family. I am the second youngest out of seven children BUT am the youngest girl. I am the first one of my siblings that will be serving my mission and am very proud to do so. I am currently preparing to serve my mission, but before doing so, I was attending college with a major in Criminal Justice and minor in Speech Pathology and Audiology. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my nieces and nephews who continue to bring joy, love and happiness to my life. I am proud to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing that brings me more happiness than my membership in the church. Growing up, I was always excited to go to church because of the beautiful church hymns and the messages that my teachers and leaders had to share with me. In May 2017, I lost one of my older sisters, and it was one of the hardest things for my family and I to go through because she was only 22 years old, left behind a 2 month old daughter & a loving husband, and her life was just beginning. This gospel brought me comfort because I was constantly reminded that families CAN be together forever IF, I stay worthy to enter the temple, get married in the temple and continue to strive to be like Christ. I continue to follow the gospel because this gospel has taught me to love everyone, to be myself and to live within my standards and to serve wholeheartedly.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person that I can strive to be. I live my faith by serving others as Christ would do and sharing the knowledge I have of this gospel with those I cross paths with. Knowing my standards as a young woman and as a member of the gospel, I continue to strive to live my standards and to stand in holy places. I live my faith by not lowering my standards for "just one time" or to "fit in the crowd". I live my faith by willingly and willfully serve my mission as a full-time missionary and as a servant of God. I live my faith by loving everyone and serving those with all my heart.
