I'm a student in a Chinese college. There are many volunteer teachers from Utah in our college. Usually they come here with their wives. The old gentleman that teaches us is going back to US in a week. So we had a little get-together in his home. We talked and laughed and he became kinda emotional and even cried a little. He showed us a video about BYU. He didn’t mean to preach or anything. But it seemed that he was suggesting we can consider BYU if we are going abroad for graduate study. BYU might be a good university. But I’m gay, so… There was rumor on Chinese internet that the mormon church has sent many secret missionaries to China in the name of volunteer teachers. They intend to convert the elite Chinese students so that the church can control the future of China. But the mormons in our school never talked about their religion even when asked to. Basically, they are very nice and gentle people. The man that taught us has 9 kids and more than 30 grandkids. Once he joked that he and his wife were here to find him a young Chinese wife, because girls here are so beautiful. So I can’t help but thinking is he a polygamist? But even if he is, he is still a helping and respectable man. Generally, all the mormons in our school are very nice people, very different from the extreme fundamentalists we see in the news.
