We were able to go tot he airport and pick up Elder Martinez who just arrived in the mission field on Wednesday evening. He spent two days at the Mission home being training and being interviewing with President Merrill. I can tell he is and will be good addition to our mission. He has an infectious simile.
As he shared his story with us we came love his family who we have not even met. Perhaps when we go home we will find the time to run them down.
Elder Smith has been so excited to get his new companion and was excited when we pulled into the church. We found him there with three other fellowshippers and he was doing split offs with them. Elder Martinez fit right in and then went directly to work. We took Elder Martinez suit cases and his suit coat jacket and put it in the Elders Boarding. On his first day in his first area Elder Martinez was off and running. As he should be!
