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.
While I was acting as a photographer for the mission Sister Greene, at the far left in the picture, joined in with some of the missionaries singing "Love at Home". The boxes that they individually stand on to preach from is in the forground.

We have a few Rexburg, Idaho missionaries in our mission. Above is Elder Lundin and the picture below is of Elder Gardner, who just arrived with this new group of missionaries.

  1. Hi Elder and Sister Greene!! You both look so wonderful, happy, and just radiating the "good news" of the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I love this picture of Jake on the box!!! That is too fun. I was just telling my mother-in-law how my friends (you) are serving in the office, and how I feel so great knowing you are there with Jake on his mission. Well, I can tell already that you are making a HUGE difference in the Taiwan Taichung mission. You are both so easy to love and become friends with. Every once in a while, when I am working out, I miss seeing you and think of you there in Taiwan. Love to you both, Julie Lundin PS. Give Elder Lundin a big hug for me, Elder Greene!!!!
