Saturday November 7th

Saturday November 7th
We safely arrived here in Taichung a few days ago and are now totally swamped with all that there is to do. The mission president is fantastic and the missionaries are the best in the world. Last year they baptized over 1300 converts in this one mission alone and the church is growing rapidly. Tomorrow we will attend the ward about two blocks from our apartment and it is an English speaking ward with about 60 or so members and many are American English teachers making up the ward membership. I have attached a few pictures of the mission home office from a distance, our apartment complex, the one in the picture with the balcony light on is ours, and our ward building. There is a tremendous spirit among the missionaries and the members and the people on the street are very friendly. The second night that we were here about twenty of us, with the mission president, went in to the very crowded market street, and after a rousing hymn we held a street meeting, and while standing on a box we preached to the masses. It may be hard for you to believe but Sister and Elder Greene both actually took our turns individually standing on the box and calling out to the people and sharing the gospel with then. It reminded me of what some of the early missionaries in England did. Many pictures and even a video were taken and they were turned into a DVD, of which a copy will be sent home in a few days. I know that this is where the Lord wants us to be at this time in our lives. We love you all!! Elder and Sister Greene
