First 10 days in Kaohsiung

Adam is getting used to living in Kaohsiung although he got sick soon after arriving in the city.  He spiked a fever a few days ago but recovered quickly after getting some needed rest.  He helped complete the teaching of a mother and two daughters and, on Saturday, he performed his first baptism in Taiwan, saying the baptismal prayer in Mandarin.
He cooks his own breakfasts (eggs, toast, pancakes) but eats out the rest of the meals because it is cheaper.  They eat at home on Sundays and that's when they cook lunch and dinner.
He is very comfortable talking to people on the street and in their homes.  Here are some of the latest photos.

Eyes half closed but with a great smile

Just beneath the "10" is the name of Vincent Lin, a former missionary from San Francisco.
