Our mission will be a mix of Macau and Hong Kong for the time remaining. With a change in the way Macau issues work visas, we have to exit the country periodically. So, part of our assignment with be in Hong Kong and the other in Macau. It certainly offers a variety...we will enjoy both!!
During the past month we had an old mission president (President and Sister Hawks) return home and a new one (President and Sister Lam) come. We do not know where Our Heavely Father and the Church find these wonderful couples to come and direct 150 missionariies for 3 years. It is hard work 7 days a week form 6:30AM to 11:00PM at night. (And sometimes they spend the night in the ER with a sick missionary, as the Lam's did the first few days they were here.) These men and their wives are a great blessing to these wonderful young people--the missionaries mature right before your eyes. The mission president's job goes far beyond the missionaries but they are his prime focus.

President Lam is a 20 year covert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Prior to coming on his mission he was a physcian in southern California. He has had 2 of his sons serve in this same mission. Both he and Sister Lam lived in Hong Kong before they went off to university in the USA and stayed.

Each day we recognize the great bounties we have been blessed with. May I testify to you that I know God lives and He loves us. I am so grateful for the Atonement and the sacrifice of Jesus Chirst on my behalf. I feel unworthy of his the blessings I have recieved.
