CCEA Bishops’ Meeting, Day 3: The Spouses hit Taipei YA!

CCEA (Council of Churches of East Asia) Bishops’ Meeting in Taiwan is now on Day 3….. a whole day of meetings for the bishops ~ and a whole day of fun for the spouses!

Off we went to the big city ~ Taipei YA!

First stop was St. John’s Cathedral where we had a great welcome from Dean Samuel Lin, senior warden Marjorie Kuo and church members. 

Marjorie then took over the day’s itinerary and we launched forth!

We found photos on the wall of VIPs who had visited the Grand Hotel in the past, so we had our Filipino spouses posing in front of the photo of their past president….
