First area: Kaohsiung City

Adam arrived in Taiwan safely Wednesday evening, local time.  He missed the super typhoon Meranti that came close to the southern end of Taiwan Wednesday and the second typhoon, Malakis, that came close to the northern end of Taiwan Saturday morning.
On Friday, Adam took the train to his first area, Kaohsiung (Gaoxiong), the major city on the west coast in southern part of Taiwan.  He found out that his friend, Vincent Lin, lived in that apartment when he was a missionary there several years ago.
Adam is serving in the Shihchung Ward in the Kaohsiung Taiwan West Stake.  "Shihchung" means the middle of the city so he is working in the main part of the city.  The members in the ward are super nice and Adam is glad to be in a welcoming environment.  His trainer is Elder Collett from Sandy, UT.  He is adapting well and is happy to serve in Taiwan.
