Temple and Church

Our first morning in Hong Kong was the Sabbath. Entering the church building felt like a quiet haven from the whirl of the city outside. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a distinct consistency in doctrine and format, no matter the country or culture, and I enjoyed the Cantonese speaking service while listening to an English translator via headphones.

We visited the Hong Kong temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is unique in many ways because of space restrictions. We received a greeting from the temple president himself at the door, and did an endowment session, followed by a tour of the other rooms. When we exited the temple, a newspaper reporter took our photo. We still need to Google the Sunday morning post to see if we made it to the final article.
