ACTUALLY I UNDERSTAND THE HUMOR OF THE BULLETINE BLOOPER

BUT COULD YOU TELL ME HOW TO CORRECT THE SECOND SENTENCE SO THAT LET IT BECOMES NOT A JOKE .

Children will be baptised at both locations.
Both ends of the church will be used for the baptism of children.

Note: spelling of "bulletin" (no "e" at the end)
You are not "a" Taiwanese. You just say "I am Taiwanese".

Also, could you try not to post in capital letters please? Thanks.
