Ni Hao ma? I guess I've been reading this blog over Pammy's shoulder for long enough and it's about time I contributed on my own (now that and I'm too far away to look over Pammy's shoulder) For those of you who don't know, I'm doing a two month internship in Tai Chung Taiwan (the same place Jesse lived when he was here).
You'll never guess who I ran into at church...That's right! ELDER OLIVER PALMER! I couldn't believe it!! I was so excited and I didn't even start talking to him, he started talking to me. I was just talking to some ward members introducing myself and he was in the foyer waiting to go to the other ward. He heard that I was from Hawaii and he stopped me and asked if I knew the Palmers. I just looked at him in unbelief. Do I know the Palmers? I've been adopted by them. I more than knew them. I lived with them. I was so excited, I was on the edge of hysterical, I was completely giddy. Just to be in contact with a member of my favorite family. I wanted a picture with him just so I had proof but he needed his companion and and his meeting was starting. I made my roommate wait for his meeting to get out but I got my picture (which is totally awful...where's Adam when you need him). It was a tender mercy from the Lord just when I needed it. What are the chances on meeting him when there's a million missionaries here and the one related to the Palmer family would be in the same building as my branch.
