Special Taiwanese Bumper Sticker

Jon, a former Taiwan Taipei missionary, on his blog Love for Every Day shares this fascinating account about a special bumper sticker that is being seen on the Wasatch Front.

This is the bumper sticker that identifies Taiwan Mormons, Chinese Mormons, and returned Taiwan missionaries.

It says "No other success can compensate for failure in the home", a quote from David O. McKay, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1951-1970. It had only been a few years since the missionaries had been allowed to proselyte in Taiwan, and the saying "Renhe chenggong dou buneng mibu jiating de shibai" (same, chinese) caught on like wildfire in the hearts of the Lord's Saints there. I occasionally see them on cars here in Salt Lake. We're putting one on our car in the next few days.

Since my daughter is currently serving in his former mission I found this very interesting.
