Discussing Theadore M. Burton's talk, "The Meaning of Repentance":
President's first counselor addressing the missionaries:
Is the light we radiate to the world steady and strong? What can cause our light to be weak or shaky?
How can we be the light of the world, the salt of the earth?
With Father's Day approaching (in Taiwan 8-8-15), what gift may we give our Heavenly Father?
And with the 60th anniversary of the Church in Taiwan next year, what gift can we give to the mission?
So grateful to have our Tainan stake presidency counselor join us and share his conversion story. Having been raised in a Christian family, he felt all his years growing up and attending church that something was missing. He sought out other churches; some made him afraid, others lacked warmth. He even attended a 3-day conference but could not find what he was searching for. Then one evening he found an English Class tract and attended. Afterwards, when he met with the missionaries, he felt something different. He felt he had truly been in the presence of servants of God! In three months, he came to know that in order to receive the blessings these servants of God promised, he had to join the Church. One year after baptism, he met his wife at a single adult activity and the two were later married in the Taipei temple! He assured our missionaries that no action is every wasted. Every contact is a seed planted!

Then "U" formation = Unified companionships:
And lastly, "F" = Baptize, focusing on Families!
