While assigned to the Fiji Suva Mission of the church, the missionaries returned to Kiribati to preach Mormonism. Abiuta was one of the first converts of the i-Kiribati missionaries. On 24 January 1976, Kenneth Palmer, the president of the Fiji Suva Mission, appointed Abiuta as the first branch president of the LDS Church in Kiribati. The LDS Church later purchased Abiuta's school and named it Moroni Community School; when it changed from a primary to a secondary school it was renamed Moroni High School.
