For the past few months, without an official calling, he has taken it upon himself to be the official hymn book custodian for our small English speaking branch, handing out the hymn books before the meetings and collecting them after the meetings. Sister Greene has developed a special relationship with him and often shares scriptures and conference talks with him. She was asked to speak at his baptism and gave a beautifully inspiring talk on the Gift of the Holy Ghost.
Our wonderful eleven English teachers will be leaving this week and a new group has already arrived to replace them. ` Our Gospel Doctrine teacher, Susan Butterfield and our Relief Society president Megan Gaian will be greatly missed. These bright and dedicated young LDS women, with the majority of the eleven being college graduates, come on six-month contracts and provide a great service while they are in Taichung. Other English teachers served as the Primary President, the Young Woman's President, the Ward chorister and counselors in various ward organizations.
