During my May trip to Asia, I spent a couple hours with Ajiax Wo (right), superintendent of Hong Kong Conference. David Kline, one of our Macau missionaries, was with me. We went out to eat with Ajiax and Mark Choi, their mission director. Then Ajiax took me on a quick tour around downtown Hong Kong.
We went through the stock exchange, and then down to the harbor. They keep filling in Victoria Harbor to reclaim more land from the sea. Skyscrapers now stand where the shoreline used to be.
Hong Kong built a huge new airport. The previous airport was located in the downtown area at the end of Victoria Harbor. People would go to the top of buildings, where it seemed like you could reach out and touch airplanes as they came in to land.
Ajiax is a really cool guy. He’s in his mid-30s, a really sharp guy. David Kline and I both scratched our heads, thinking, “It’s hard to believe some woman hasn’t grabbed this guy.”
