9-30-16 Taichung Mission Reunion 2010 - 2016

Thanks to all who attended our Taiwan Taichung Mission Reunion! 
President and Sister Bishop preceded us in presiding over the Taiwan Taichung Mission from 2010 - 2013. We are so grateful for their labors in Taiwan, and in preparing such a great mission for us to arrive to! 
A wonderful thank you also for all your help in organizing this reunion!
Among the first to arrive at 5:00pm:

WOW! All the way here from Magong, Penghu Islands!
And with one of the missionaries who served there for six months:)

Several of our devoted missionaries came from BYUI after being delayed in traffic for five hours!
We're so grateful they didn't give up and turn around!
Especially to be reunited with an elder coming all they way out from Minnesota!

We are SO grateful for everyone that came, and for keeping your wonderful mission experience alive in your hearts!
