The BEST Mission

Lorrie Call EnvelopeLorrie Mission CallI served in the Hong Kong & Macau Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from January 1983 to July 1984.  It was and is, of course, the best mission in the church!  At the time I served there, Hong Kong was a British Colony.  It is now called the China, Hong Kong Mission.  With the explosion of missionaries currently being called, I expect there are many more serving in Hong Kong than shown below.  This picture was taken at Wu Kwai Sha, a camp where we stayed for a couple of days on October 24th & 25th, 1983.

    Sister Kelsey: I doubt you would remember me. This is Elder Livsey, the missionary with the girl’s name not too dissimilar to your first name. I was about two months behind you on my mission, and there I am on the back row next to my all-time favorite and most influential companion, Yeung Wai Kit (Basil), and to this day one of my closest friends (Elder Alan Andrus). I lost this photo several years ago, which is unusual because I kept just about everything from my mission, and it’s all in scrapbooks and organized. I remember those two days at Wu Kai Sha very well, and I’m smiling as I write this just because of the great memories this brings. It’s a Sunday night in Guangzhou, and I’m sitting on my hotel bed reminiscing. I really appreciate you writing. I’m on a month-long trip in China for business, and, naturally, I squeezed in a two-day, just-for-fun trip to Hong Kong. I even went to the temple (no, not the one in Wong Tai Shin! Ha.). Anyway, I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog. Thank you very much for this. You made my day.
