Hi I'm Pon

I grew up in Hong Kong. I'm married and have four children. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an employee of the Church in Hong Kong. My key responsibility is to ensure that internal controls are in place and safeguard the assets of the Church. I collect stamps and love to play table tennis. I have four children and they all grown up. I love the gospel and strongly believe that happiness in the family worth more than anything in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

『「你相信有天父和耶穌基督嗎?」對於我這個在中學及小學十一年教育中從未學習過這些事情,而我的家人又是相傳下來是「拜神」的人,對於這個問題,我可一笑置之,甚或乾脆說聲──不知道也不相信。但一對年輕的傳教士對我講解了一個概念,使我原先的念頭改變了不少。他們說:「倘若我今天不到府上來拜訪你,你會認識我嗎?你會知道這世上有我這人存在嗎?」因此我們不能武斷一樣事情是不存在的,因這事可能並非不存在,而是我們未認識到罷了。這對年青人所說的話的確有道理,因此我容許他們在以後的日子中繼續來探訪我,並教導我這方面的知識。 三個月過去了,有一天他們再來探訪我的時候,竟請求我的同意,接受洗禮和加入他們的教會,雖然在過去的三個月中,我對他們所教導的知識都表示贊同,但我仍未能證實他們所教導的,確如他們所說是真實的,因而我向他們表示我要考慮,並對他們說出我並不立刻接受洗禮的原因。他們鼓勵我閱讀這本摩門經的標題頁,並鼓勵我像這標題頁般去作出誠懇的祈禱,並教導了我天父答覆人祈禱的方法,由於確實渴望知道這些學習到的事情是否真實,便在當晚在我的房間中誠懇地獻上我的禱告。我的禱告持續了十五分鐘,然後彷彿有一個微少的聲音在我的腦海中對我說:「他們所教導的事是真實的。」並且在我的心中亦充滿著一種溫暖的感覺。我在這刻感動地流下淚來,因我已獲得了一個切實的見證,我知道天父是活著的,耶穌基督是我們的救主,天父會聆聽我們的禱告並給予我們答覆。我更高興的是沒有浪費了三個月的時間,學習了一些對我無益的事物。 當我獲得了這個見證後,我決定與我的父母商量,請求他們准許我接受洗禮和加入教會,很可惜他們給我的第一個反應就是嚴厲的責駡,並聲言以後不准傳教士來探訪我,他們反對我洗禮的理由是恐怕失去了我,雖然我努力向他們解釋但徒勞無功,且得到更強烈的責駡,因此只好即時停止提及這些事情。由於已獲得了一次見證,因此我決定再向天父祈禱,請求祂給予我機會再與父母商討洗禮之事。我相信天父必會幫助我。三天後的晩上,在我再與父母商量之前,我再跪下誠懇的祈禱,然後再與父母談及洗禮的事,我向他們講出我的見證,然後請求他們的允許,我深信天父確曾軟化了我父母的心,使他們沒有再責駡我,並對我說:「只要你覺得是好的話,那你便接受洗禮吧,但我提醒你,你要小心地考慮清楚。」1976年12月,我踏進洗禮池,加入了這間耶穌基督後期聖徒教會,我從未感覺後悔加入這間教會,因我確曾在我洗禮後獲得了無數次像我洗禮前所獲得的見證和經驗,使我更確定這間教會所教導的福音是真實的。」』 Brief translation in English: A young pair of missionaries found me and shared the discussion with me. However, growing up in a traditional Chinese family, it was never an easy decision for him to go against his parents’ will and be baptized. His unwavering mind and determination in finding out the truth led him to offer his first prayer to the Lord. Tears ran down his eyes after a humble prayer. In response to his burning desire, Heavenly Father answered his prayer and assured him that the truth was found and helped him to soften the hearts of his parents who were initially terribly upset about his baptism. I continued to pray and asked my parents for permission. 3 days later, when I approached my parents again, a supporting answer was finally received. I was finally baptized in Dec 1976.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving voluntarily as the Director of the Hong Kong Public Affairs Council and Director of the Hong Kong Media Committee of the Church in Hong Kong. I am leading a team of volunteers to involve in helping general public to learn and understand the Church and share our beliefs. My services include hosting the visitors who would like to learn more about the Church, hosting the media during Church events, and using the media positively to invite others to learn who we are and what we believe. I also do hometeaching in the Church or in the members' homes monthly. This helps us to build our friendship and sharing our testimonies and experiences in applying the gospel in life. I love to serve in the Church and use my talents and abilities to serve my Lord and my fellowmen. I love to listen to the Church music which are uplifting and inspirational.
