Chuck here, providing a must-read tip. I recommend the blog of Elder Eric Palmer to get a taste of the perspective of the young missionaries serving with Mom and Dad. He has talked of Elder and Sister Gates a few times, but his email of July 28th was especially hilarious about my dad talking trash on the basketball court. It sounds like the Elders really like having Mom and Dad there.

I believe Elder Palmer is from Virginia, but I don't know where. Mom and Dad, let us know if his family lives near Richmond.
