5-1-16 Taichung East Stake Conference Returned Missionary Activity

After an inspiring stake conference with the Taichung East Stake, President Lin (stake presidency second counselor) invited returned missionaries to attend a meeting together afterwards. The first item of business: singing Happy Birthday to President Blickenstaff!
 President Lin then invited us both to share a message of encouragement to these brethren and sisters who so faithfully dedicated their lives to serving the Lord.
 President asked how many had a copy of PMG to use as their missionary reference guide, 
and how many still had one in their personal library:
 Then he quizzed them on all the thirteen different chapters,
and encouraged them to keep up on their missionary skills!
 Br. J.C. Juan, former area seventy and currently called to organize the 60-year reunion of missionary work in Taiwan, also addressed the missionaries:
 President Chang has been so kind to us. He and his wife invited us to lunch our first day in Taichung, and has watched over us during these past three years.
 Of all these returned missionaries, only one served longer ago than President!
 These two sisters are sisters to President's former companion! 
The sister on the left started her service in Kaohsiung Mission one year before President:)

Sisters who went forth to serve from the Jiayi District (and companion visiting from the US):
