Mexico City Welcomes Elder Palmer

     Elder Palmer has arrived in Mexico City, Mexico! Monday morning Elder Palmer boarded a plane that took him where he will be spending the next 22 months of his life preaching the gospel.  We are more than thrilled for him and the many experiences that he has awaiting him.
     Our Dad just so happened to be heading to Arizona for work the same morning that Elder Palmer was flying out so he was able to see him and spend a little bit of time with him.  While they were waiting both Dad and Elder Palmer got their shoes shinned.  The gentlemen who was shinning Elder Palmer's shoes happend to speak spanish so Elder Palmer got to test out a little bit of his skills.  Dad recorded it so we all got to see him in action. We are all very confident that he will have no problems with the language.  At least we all hope so...
     Monday afternoon Elder Palmer and thirteen other missionaries arrived at the mission home in Mexico City where they stayed for the night and the next morning he will be meeting his new companion.  We will update you more as soon as we hear from Elder Palmer again.
     For now he is safe and sound in Mexico and ready to start spreading our Heavenly Father's gospel...
