Hi I'm Elijah T. Logo

I'm nineteen going on twenty (as I type this), full Samoan (always), love to love (and forever), and I am a Mormon (for eternity).

About Me

well......dang.....where do I start.....I am brother to one blood brother and sister, but then at the same time I'm a bruvah to all those I love...wich is pretty much everyone. I am a son to two beautiful, amazing, Samoan parents whom I direct a heap of love and care towards. I love the Lord and I try my best to be doing the things that He would want me to do. I was born in New Zealand, raised up in Broady Victoria from age 1 to 12, but then grew up in Brisbang in the homely suburb of Redbank from 13 to 18, and now as I type this up I find myself at my local library at Melton Victoria and I have been here ever since I finished High School. A little bit of what make the Elijah .T Logo of today are the Scriptures, Prayer, Music, Movies, Anime', Sport, and Love.

Why I am a Mormon

I had to grow up quick and having the company of a lot of shady grown ups I pretty much was in my own world growing up. I grew up hanging around with my older brothers friends and when it came for the time for me to make my own friends I realized that I wanted to be older than I was. I grew up in a home where arguments and holes in the walls were the norm. My parents were divorced just when I turned twelve. My mother was in a affair with another man she continues to tell me was just a friend but I know better. The aunties and uncles I grew up around turned a blind eye to their divorce and acted as if nothing happened despite the fact my parents were the ones who helped every single one of the become temporally self reliant (I still love them though). My father there but wasn't and my mother was there but didn't really know who I was cause I was never one to show and tell my true feelings but instead

How I live my faith

I am currently called to work with the young men (ages 12 to 18) of my ward Melton 2nd (which is a number of 20-25 young men) and I love everything about it...and them. It requires a heap of my time and attention but to be specific and general it takes my Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoons of which is dedicated to teaching and facilitating Gospel learning for the youth. Other than that my week pretty much goes as follows: Mon - Training (for my uncles Volley team), Tue - Mission Prep, Wed - Youth, Thu - Institute (which is pretty much Gospel/Scripture Study specifically based on a certain courses depending on the Ward and teacher for the young single adults aged from 18 to 30), Fri - usually an event for the YSA (young single adults) comes up on Fridays, Sat - prepare for Sunday, and finally after all that (excluding all the other details that occur throughout the week) is Sunday....which is a day I dedicate to focusing on the Lord, going to church and being edified by the Sunday service and Sunday peaceful vibes. Sunday is my Sabbath.
