New General Authority Seventy: "Feeding the Missionaries Was the Best Mistake I Ever Made"

“We didn’t have much, but we had the gospel, and we invited everybody to participate,” Sister Wakolo said.

For recently called General Authority Seventy Elder Taniela Biu Wakolo, inviting the missionaries to his house for dinner “was the best mistake I’ve ever done in my life.”

The recently called General Authority Seventy — and convert of 23 years — has dedicated every day of his life since his March 1994 baptism to serving the Lord.

Born on June 25, 1967, on the small island of Lomaloma, Lau, Fiji, to Taniela Vosa and Temalesi Buadromo Wakolo, Elder Wakolo is the youngest of six children.

“I was raised in a very humble home, but we were rich in terms of love we have for each other,” he said. “My parents taught us how to work together, and serve together.”
