At age 84, my mother was called to serve in the Taichung Taiwan Mission!!!
On November 10, Sister Madeline Jin Chao (far right), entered the mission field as a Senior missionary. She was the first one in my immediate family to accept baptism thirty eight years ago, in 1976. Our entire family was sealed in the Los Angeles temple in 1978, leading the way for all of her four children and three of her grandchildren thus far (soon to be four) to establish their own eternal families:) Sister Chao has had two sons, one daughter, two grandsons, and two granddaughters serve full-time missions.
What a legacy she has established for the Chao family!
It is so wonderful to serve with your spouse in the work of salvation, and lead the people you love, prepared sons and daughters of God, into the waters of baptism!
There is nothing quite like seeing your daughter grow to love and serve others as much as you love her:
Sister Caitlin Blickenstaff currently serves in the Seoul Korea South Mission.
