We had several swimming parties at our home and at the Friests’ home that summer. We used plastic swimming pools which were very popular in 1974. Wendell and Faith Friest were living in Taipei at the time. Wendell had graduated from St.Paul Theological Seminary not very long before and had come back to this place which he loved, Taiwan, as a missionary. They had three girls then. We went to their place a couple of times and they came to our place, too, for a fun party. The pictures below give you some glimpses of the happy time of our kids.
