A typical day in a missionary's life

We can't believe how time flies when we are not noticing. With only less than 17 months left of our mission, sometimes we are frustruated that we are not learning as fast as we would like.

We are old people, you known after all. But it helps to know that Elder Wan and I are part of the world wide support missionaries who connect with one another through internet. Thanks to the modern technology, we are getting trained through web conferences and skpre by trainers that live in different parts of US ,whom we have never met and probably would never meet.They monitor our progress very well.

We learned that a typical day in a missionary's life IS NEVER TYPICAL for it involves many facets. Our job assignments include working full time in the Family History Support office, serving as temple workers, proselying and translation. A full P day is never typical too.

We are very busy but we love it. Our testimony of the Gospel is being strengthened as we engage ourselves in this great cause. During our proselying, we met some , who at first refused to give us his or her phone number, yet upon hearing that we have a great genealogy program or FHE program,changed one's mind.

We saw one of our old friends, Brother Lee Chung San at the Family History Exhibition. He had traced his genealogy records up to 3000 BC, to Wang Dei, our first ancient Chinese emperor in ancient history. The records came to him through alot of faith, diligent searching, and by miracles. It took him several years to submit over 100,000 names to the temple for ordinaces! Probably the names that he submitted alone will keep both the Taipei temple and Hong Kong temple very busy for many years to come!
