My name is Erik Peterson (Kong Yurui in Chinese) and I am a member
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the
Mormons). I served as a missionary with the Chinese people of the
Houston, Texas area during the early 90's, a time which greatly
impacted my life in many ways (including learning the language which
helped me find my vocation).
The teachings of Jesus Christ through his latter-day prophets have
been a great comfort in my life. I know where I came from, why I am
here, and where I want to go after this life. I provide the following
links to those who might be more interested in learning more.

Selections from the Book of Mormon in Chinese (Big5)
The Book of Mormon is a record of Christ's teachings to people
in the New World. With the Bible, it provides a strong testimony
that Christ lives and loves us.
Note: Although I have proofread the above chapters several times,
some typos may still exist. Also, some characters that are used in
the printed Chinese edition of the Book of Mormon are not available in
the Big5 character set. In these cases, equivalent characters that
are available were used. Please report any errors (or questions!) to
me at lds AT chinesetools.com (replace AT with @).
