This is a week late, my bad!
James is finally sending pictures of Palmdale. His pictured companion is Elder Stahelli, who is now the Zone Leader and thus, James has a new companion. His new companion is Elder Benitiz, who is from Argentina. We have yet to see a picture of him.
As for the California forest fires, James says they haven't really hit Palmdale. In one of the above photos, he points out you can see some of the smoke from the fires in the distance. Try to find out which one it is. No seriously, please try to find out, because I have no idea.
MY MAIN QUESTION IS WHICH PERSON DOES THE EXTRA HAND IN THE LAST PHOTO BELONG TO?
