Too cute to choose just one, so today you all get TWO Lead pics!
Before heading back home, David took a little side trip to Shanghai where he worked his magic with the students at the Shanghai American School (SAS) and the babies at Shanghai Baby’s Home. One constant in life is that David and kids are always a winning combination!

Shanghai American School (SAS)
If there are kids to be found, David will always be around! Like moths to a flame, David and kids always seem drawn to each other – I think David sees the joy, hope and possibility in every child, and children recognize goodness, light and magic when they see it!
Ever the courteous gentleman, David edited his original IG post to make sure we could find him in this crowd of first graders! Initially, the only hint we had was that he was standing next to a girl who was doing something “classic”.
I scanned the photo, and by process of elimination I narrowed it down to:
1. A girl who was looking off to the side, instead of at the camera 2. A girl sticking out her tongue 3. A girl making “moose antlers” to the boy next to her 4. A girl sporting 2 peace signs 5. A girl making rabbit ears to… HEY that’s David!
Thankfully David came to the rescue, and after a moment, he felt like we might need a bigger hint and added (I’m on the far left)
#5 – Girl making rabbit ears! NAILED IT!
Will David ever not be completely amazing? I think not!
A Different Perspective:
Daniel Merker got a shot of the first graders before the playful little girl got her rabbit ears up behind David’s head!
Beautiful & Glorious!
The students were treated to a performance from David too!
David’s visit to the Shanghai Baby’s Home sent the fandom into overdrive! The amount of cuteness in these photos was too much, just too much! He expressed his gratitude for having a home and family – always reminding us that we are all so blessed. Building forts and playing a Disney game on his phone, David shared his fun side and reminded us that there’s a kid inside all of us, no matter how old we are!
David’s last IG post and tweet sent us into the stratosphere! Seeing him holding little baby Snow and sporting that amazing mega watt ArchuSmile, it was a fitting close to his wonderful adventure in Taiwan and Shanghai.
“I guess it had a shine to it that she preferred…” babies it seems, like all of us, are inexplicably drawn to things that SHINE.

As David prepares to leave Taiwan and travel home, he shared a couple of lovely instagram posts about his stay there. The first included a tourist stop at a Buddhist Temple. CLICK HERE to see this post on David’s IG site.
davidarchieOur Taiwan trip is coming to an end. It has been an amazing last week and a half! Losing my voice and still getting through events in Taipei, Tainan, ChiaYi, Hualien, Kaohsiung, the 2016 Community Awards, and the LDS Taiwan Youth Conference… this has been an unforgettable experience! I’m sad to be leaving Taiwan and the wonderful people who helped us get through it all. Thank you for all of your help and to everyone who came to the shows! This won’t be the last time we come! 謝謝！ This was a Buddhist temple in Hualien that we visited. It was a beautiful place. I love the emphasis put on connecting with ancestors in this culture. It’s so important to keep connected with family even when they’ve passed on. I have a strong belief that family ties last forever even beyond this life. #Taiwan#Temple#Hualien#buddhisttemple
Woo Hooo!!! So nice to see Workin’ is beginning to get some radio play! Let’s hope it will continue to expand to more markets!
