Optional assignment 2 Suqi Liu Option (e): go to MTC for TRC work Hours: 3 hours I heard about TRC during the mid-term, my friends told me that we could do something for missionary work although we are not going on a mission right now. I went for the English section for one time with my friends and then went for Mandarin section for 2 times myself. I really learned a lot during the Mandarin section although it seems that it should be the missionaries who need to practice language.

I am glad I did this for my optional assignment this summer, because I feel I strength my testimony by going to the MTC and serving the Lord by doing what I can do now....

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
