The Taibao Branch is pretty small, with about 20-30 people attending church each Sunday. There are a total of 7 young people (Primary children plus Young Men/Young Women). The branch president is 29 years old but, according to Adam, is a super cool person. Adam's apartment is only 3 minutes from the chapel so it is very convenient.
Adam loves this area (just like he loves all his former areas) because the people are so down to earth, really nice, and really hard working. His area includes the beach so it's a little farther from the mountains and the rain.
He is teaching some really good people and working with members who have been to church for a while. Now that he has a companion who is brand new in Taiwan, Adam has to take more responsibility in communicating in Chinese with the local people.
Here are some recent photos.
