Sunday! Even though Jilong is a pretty big city, there is only one ward here. They are part of one of the Taipei stakes and so the stake center is about a 30 minute train ride away. The ward here meets on the 5th and 6th floors of a larger building. I never served in this area, but from what I remember, 20 years ago the church was about the same size here. Even though they don’t have their own building and the ward is pretty small, they seemed pretty amazing. They were also so kind to us and gave us non-stop attention right from the moment we walked through the front door. The children had a translator for primary again and they loved going. Elders Quorum met right next to the primary and I could hear tons of laughing and singing from the children throughout the entire time. Ethan even got a present because they were celebrating everyone who had a birthday in May or June. The topic of Elders Quorum was a discussion on ministering. It is funny that in all three wards we have visited here we have had lessons and discussions on ministering during Elders Quorum. We spent the rest of the afternoon back in the apartment listening to church music, reading scriptures, writing in journals, and anything else we could think of to keep the kids at least semi-reverent (playing with their newly bought nun-chucks and ninjago lego sets).
Once you get off the elevators, the church is right there on the 5th and 6th floors.
