It’s His Church

“Ye must take upon you the name of Christ, which is my name” (3 Nephi 27:5).

I was born in Fiji. My parents were not members of the Church, but they went to another church.

When I grew up, I married my wife, Anita. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She kept inviting the missionaries over to meet me.

One day I told them they could come to dinner for the next three nights. I said they had to use only the Bible to answer my questions. Their answers were perfect. On the third night, they asked me a question.

“If you had a grocery store, what would you call it?”

“I would call it the Wakolo Family Grocery Store because it’s my store,” I answered.

“Whom should a church be named after?” they asked.

It was a great question. And I knew the answer with my heart and soul. The true Church would be named after Jesus because it’s His Church. And The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was named after Him!

I had just one more question: “When can I be baptized?” One week later, I was.

When I was baptized, I took upon myself Jesus Christ’s name. That means I became a member of His Church and promised to follow Him. I try my best every day to live as He did. I know that this is Jesus Christ’s true Church.
