Hi I'm Telesia

I am Tongan from Australia-Sydney. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the eldest child, grandchild and also GREAT grandchild in my family... I like sports and spending time with friends/family .. I am Tongan and from Australia so I am also a huge supporter of the NRL sport..I am currently in my second year of university but I have put these on hold to go and serve as a full time missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been Mormon all my life, All my family members growing up have been Mormon. I remember growing up thinking everyone was Mormon in the world, not knowing about any other church until I reached primary school. I remember growing up wanting to experience going to another church and questioning my beliefs. My family was invited to a close family friend's church event which would run for a couple of days this was the first time I attended a different church. It was a different feeling ,nonetheless I enjoyed it but I felt something missing in my heart. I felt the urge to pray which I did as I came home, I remember coming back to Church and the spirit confirmed to me as soon as I came in and I felt at home, I felt a warm and peaceful feeling in my heart which I missed the most. I am thankful for the spirit for that confirmation and thankful for the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I am currently a teacher in Primary class at church. I teach students from ages 3-7 which I absolutely love and enjoy doing every Sunday, these kids never fail to impress and teach me every time. I strive to improve myself everyday and to always be thankful for things I have. Praying and reading scriptures at any free time and sharing what I learn with anyone.
