New Language Study Book of Mormon 29 Apr 2009
To all Taiwan mission alumni,

Good news! The Scriptures Committee of the Church has approved the recommendation to lift the current restriction on the Missionary Language Study Edition of the Book of Mormon in Chinese (Item #06215265). This will now be available to general membership through Distribution Services retail channels.

Now don't rush out to buy one just yet! The Distribution retail stores were just notified of the decision today, so it will be at least a week before the books hit the shelves of the larger Wasatch Front stores and as many as 3 weeks before the more outlying stores may see them. You could probably check ldscatalog.com after Wednesday of next week for online orders.

This is an amazing book, with the text in 3 parallel columns of characters, pin yin Romanization, and English.

Best regards,

Steve Argyle

Taiwanese Seeking Home Stay in Utah 13 Mar 2009
I have a friend from Taiwan who is coming to Utah in September for school with her 9 year-old son for a year and is looking for a place to stay.

She is very outgoing, nice, and friendly. She is not LDS so it will be a great Chuan Jiao opportunity. She is very willing to teach your kids Chinese and cook Chinese food for you and your family a couple of times a week in exchange for their food and a place to stay. She is very willing to help with any house work as well if you need some help. She is also willing to share a room with her son.

Please let me know if you are interested in this opportunity or would like to know more information about her. My email address is jadelai4@yahoo.com

Chinese-English Book of Mormon 07 Jan 2009
Brother Baird, I have tried to purchase this book, without success (yet). If you find a way to get copies of this book, please let us all know. I wanted to get copies to give as Christmas presents to my wife, several returned Taiwan missionary friends, and to keep one for myself! I suspect there will be considerable demand for these.

New Year's Message 31 Dec 2008
Dear Fellow Missionaries,

Thirty years ago we were working to bring the gospel message to our beloved brothers and sisters in Taiwan. What ever you have done or not done since then...just remember that at that point in time we were doing the right thing. For me it was a glorious time! Elizabeth and I benefited from the experience and all of our children have fond memories of the land and people of Taiwan.

These are hard times as some members of my family struggle to find work, keep jobs, and make payments. Follow the guidance of the prophets--stay out of debt, live within your means, have a cushion of cash and food. Our family motto these days is: Use it up, wear it out, make it do, do with out (and I also say fix it up).

There is joy in Christ's message. There is hope for all mankind.

With warm regards to all those who served.

Frederick

Dane was living in his parents house in my ward in Queen Creek, Arizona while his parents were on a mission up until about a year ago. If I remember right, they moved to Texas.

His parents still live in my ward. I will ask them for Danes contact info on Sunday.

Chinese Hymns 16 Sep 2008
I found this resource for Chinese Hymns online:

http://www.cftc-hc.com.tw/lds/Bible/hymns/

I Am A Child of God is here:

http://www.cftc-hc.com.tw/lds/Bible/hymns/187.html

Then you can convert to pin-yin using one of many tools... this one seems to work just fine:

Hope this helps ;)

Free room and board to USU Chinese student 13 Aug 2008
A year ago we thought we were moving to Taiwan or China. Turns out we were half right. We ARE moving (sold our home and business already) but to Logan, UT. Not as exotic, far closer to family. But we still are VERY serious about learning Chinese and absorbing Chinese culture as a family.

Living in Salt Lake, we were involved in various exchange student programs, hosting students from around the world. We'd like to keep that going in Logan, but on our own terms.

If are a native Chinese speaker, or if you know anyone who is, who is going to/planning on going to Utah State, please be in touch with us. Our family would love to invite you to live in our home and be a part of our family! We would like to work out some sort of arrangement where you can teach us Chinese and cook delicious Chinese food for us a few times a week, and in exchange, live rent and living cost FREE.

If this sounds like a good opportunity for you or someone you know, we hope to hear from you! Thanks, and have a great day! (To learn more about your potential new roommates, visit QuentinCasperson.com to see our family blog.)
