Emily was called to speak Mandarin Chinese in the Honolulu Hawaii Mission** of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in May 2021, and will serve a period of 18 months specifically at the Temple Visitors Center, and the Polynesian Cultural Center, from 08/2021 to 02/2023. See VLOG of her experiences there!
**The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is creating a second mission in Hawaii. The Hawaii Laie Mission — the faith’s 408th mission worldwide — will open on January 3, 2022. It will include the Laie Hawaii Temple Visitors’ Center, three young single adult stakes near BYU–Hawaii, and two stakes in the Laie area. Emily will be included in this new mission.
The number of missionaries assigned to the Honolulu mission includes those assigned to the visitors’ center and many senior missionaries who serve at the Polynesian Cultural Center and BYU–Hawaii. The new mission will allow those serving at the visitors’ center and in the nearby area to have closer contact with mission leaders.
