"Keeping the Church history of Malaysia alive through facebook
From blogs, technology on the internet had progressed to sites like facebook. At the eve of the 2nd decade of the new millennium, I had written a post in our family journal how from snail mail I had used these new technologies to connect to my forever friends. In the past year I had created and maintained a facebook group to gather all returned missionaries of our Church who had served in Malaysia, which would include foreigners, as well as Malaysian born missionaries who were sent to other countries. The objective was to keep alive the history of our Church in Malaysia and maintain a fellowship or connection between these members of the group who share a common love of the gospel and a love of the country of Malaysia and its people."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The post was made in March 2012. I am now writing this post just a year later in March 2013. Several spiritual moments occurred since then namely; Han received his mission call to serve in the UK starting 29 June 2012 and towards the end of the year on Nov 6, Mom passed away in Singapore after her 7 year bout with cancer.
The Dragon Year of 2012 ended in Feb 2013 thus ushering the new Lunar Year of the Snake on 10th Feb. The 15 days of Chinese new year ending 24th Feb was covered in the family blog post. Some noteworthy spiritual events can be mentioned from the blog post which includes my visit to the Los Angeles temple and also being assigned by the Mission President on the last day of the CNY to deliver to important mission calls for two young men in KL. All these are covered here.
I just like now to record the latest experience out of the facebook group that I created for Returned Missionaries in Malaysia that was contributing to the Church History in the country. A photo was posted in the group home page on 23 Feb 2013 by a Sis Lorraine Timothy talking about the Goh family in KK where the father was the branch president sitting in the middle of the photo below :
