TEACHING IN THE NIGHT MARKET
This is the "Night Market" packed with hundreds of people socializing, shopping and eating. This is where new missionaries are brought their first night in Taichung, Taiwan teaching the gospel standing on a "Dan Jones" Box in the center of the busy street packed with people. They had arrived in Taichung just about twenty hours earlier. We come out to give support, sing hymns and encourage the new missionaries as they bear testimonies in their new language, Mandarin. It is a real confidence builder for the missionaries. After bearing their testimonies they each go with a seasoned companion and teach among the crowds of people. From tonights efforts collectively the missionaries received 87 referrals. President and Sister Hoer are in the center of the picture. We had twenty four Elders and Sisters with us.
