You can now find many resources in Simplified Chinese on LDS.org. https://www.lds.org/languages/zhs?lang=zhs The Scriptures are only viewable in PDF form, but hopefully soon will be displayed like all the other languages. You can download the Triple here and the Book of Mormon here. Other resources are now available including the most recent Liahona.

The LDS Church announced a new website today specifically for Chinese member living outside of China. http://mormonsandchina.org This website seeks to answer “Frequently Asked Questions” by PRC Church members outside China and by Church leaders who work around the world with those members.  It gives needed basic information for PRC Chinese members returning to China, […]

Deseret News has a column in todays paper about the Chinese Book of Mormon. There is one small mistake in the caption for the image of the first edition. It is labeled as a “Mandarin Chinese” Book of Mormon, which is incorrect. Actually the first Edition Chinese book of Mormon was translated in Taiwan but […]

I found a little church pamphlet at a used book store called “You are called to Serve” 因此你被召喚去服務 printed in 1969. The curious thing about it is that the scripture references inside refer to the Doctrine & Covenants as 聖教義和約言. A little different then we now know. Check it out:

I came across a page in an early edition of the Chinese 聖徒之聲 “Voice of the Saints” that has a well known quote by Heber J. Grant. I believe the quote is attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, but President Grant used the quote quite frequently. “That which we persist in doing becomes easy to do; not because the […]

聖徒之聲 I was able to scan in from Microfiche the first issue of the ShengTu ZhiSheng ( Voice of the Saints). The scan is poor but very readable. The pdf has been processed through OCR, so it should be fairly searchable although I doubt it was very accurate. You can download it here. Enjoy.
