Christian Richards was just recently called to the Singapore Mission. This mission is English speaking even though half of the population speaks Chinese at home. Christian is hoping that the Chinese classes he took in school will still come in handy. Part of his mission also comprises the island of Malaysia.
Christian has been serving in the military for the last 3 years and just finished a deployment in Afghanistan. Leaving home is nothing new for Christian but he is very excited to be leaving this time to serve the Lord. He will enter the Provo MTC on October 9th.
