On July 18, 2000 Pastor Laki married his Queen First Lady Caroline Felise. They were blessed with 4 children; Deja, Mei, Makena and Nehemiah.

While serving under a great man of God & CEO/Founder of Soul’d Out Christian Center International, Pastor Alex Toeaina, Laki used his whitty ideas to run and direct the Youth Program “Champions in Training”, and his street smarts to lead and head Armorbearer Ministry. With a bigger calling on his life Laki was then ordained as the Assistant Pastor to Pastor Alex Toeaina.

With a calling to “Win the lost to the Lord,” Laki followed his calling to Las Vegas and on December 4th, 2010 He was ordained as the Pastor of SOUL’D OUT CHRISTIAN CENTER INTL LAS VEGAS also known as SOCCI Win City.
