Hi I'm Penelope

I grew up in Hong Kong. I have been baptised for a year, and now I am on a mission!

About Me

I love life, and pondering about it. I love writing stories with my younger sister, and English Literature is my passion. I am planning to go to university in Hawaii to study psychology. I would love to go to Scotland and Thailand because they are where my parents are from. I think Putonghua is a beautiful language and I hope to master it one day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am forever grateful for the missionary who stopped me on the street to share his faith so very sincerely. Though I did not understand everything he was trying to say, I was touched by his sincerity. It never occur to me that I would believe and be baptised. I just wanted to learn more about Mormonism. After 5 months of investigating - reading the Book of Mormon, praying, and going to Church, I realised I have come to know that the things shared with me are true. The missionaries invited me to pray to know whether Heavenly Father wants me to be baptised and begin my journey of following His Son, Jesus Christ. So together with the missionaries, I knelt down, very sure that they were wasting their time. I struggled to finish that prayer because almost immediately I felt an intense burning sensation in my heart. Heavenly Father allowed me to realize that I know that being a member of His church is the right thing to do, and that the one I loved will be blessed as long as I live according to His teachings. So here I am - baptised, and earnestly hoping that those I love would one day come to know and feel as I do.

How I live my faith

After I got baptised, I loved spending time with non-members who were interested in knowing more about our faith. I had many opportunities to share with them how I came to know for myself that our Father in heaven loves us so, and that by living His teachings I can enjoy and bring the most happiness to those I cherish. Now I am a full-time missionary! I tried my best to save up money so as to fund myself to share the gospel with other people. I am excited and eager to spend these 18 months sharing with EVERYONE how much the gospel has blessed me and my family. I hope to invite many to know for themselves, and enjoy the beautiful happiness and love that knowing and living can bring.
