Chinese Latern Festival

Kuangdi, our Chinese friend, invited the four missionaries, and Brother Spaulding, our institute teacher, and his family of 5 for this special festival.  They had a chinese buffet and then entertainment to celebrate the year of the Dragon. 

Kuangdi came to Stevens Point last year for college.  His parents researched  colleges in the US and found BYU and were very impressed with the honor code.  They felt that it would be a good place for Kuangdi to continue his education in accounting.   He had to have an interview and  recommendation from our branch president to apply for the Y so he found the church and walked in and ask for an interview.  The missionaries then started teaching him.  Kuangdi attended church all through the year, took the institute class for credit, and studied with the all the missionaries that have been here.  He has been accepted to BYU Idaho in January of 2013 where Elder Dautel, from Germany, has also been accepted for school.  They developed a good friendship so that will be good for both of them.
