Steps Forward and Back

I served a mission in south Asia among Chinese people, and so I am interested in the spread of the Gospel to mainland China.

Regarding Mormonism, two recent developments are interesting.

Firstly, from this article, I see that Taiwan is down-sizing from three to two missions.  It is noteworthy that a similar event occurred roughly thirty years ago, when the Kaohsiung mission (which was actually the second created in Taiwan to my knowledge) was down-sized after the creation of the Taichung mission (the third created in Taiwan).

Secondly, there is the well-known story of Utah Governor John Huntsman being enlisted to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to China.  Huntsman, an active Mormon to my knowledge, would certainly be a friend to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints should they be interested in some sort of assistance from Uncle Sam in facilitating ecclesiastical or humanitarian efforts.
