They're going global -- starting with a satellite broadcast to seven different sites Sept. 25 from 7 to 10 p.m., a broadcast that Wheat hopes will rejuvenate friendships, renew testimonies and touch every missionary still in China and throughout the world.
"This is not your everyday mission reunion," Wheat said. "It's something else. I don't think it's ever been done before."
Wheat, who has since served as the Hong Kong China Temple president, will speak along with his wife Donnetta and President Chen's wife. (President Chen died 16 years ago.) The mission song will be sung.
The event will be broadcast to Australia; Los Angeles; Provo; Hawaii; Montreal and Vancouver, British Columbia into chapels; the Crabtree Building on the BYU campus and a private home in Vancouver.
