description: "Elder Payne and I went to Istanti, Co. to visit some that belongs to the Church, we went to Sister Christine Engstrom, she was pleased to see us, she was Opposed by her husband and Son on account of her I went on to Isanti Co, visited great many houses and distributed tracts, stoped with L. Lind, I have got to this place, but dont know which way to go, for the people will not lissen to the message the Lord has send me with." An instance of experiencing the gift of the interpretation of tongues is recorded in President Palmer’s diary under date of Sunday, September 4, 1881. A conference was being held at St. Francis, Minnesota, where there were many Swedish people. The diary reads: “Meetings at 10 a.m., 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. The house was full of Saints and strangers. The Spirit of the Lord was poured out upon us and we had a time of rejoicing. I spoke, in the afternoon, on John’s Revelations and the Apostasy of the Primitive Church. After meeting Scandinavian said he could not understand English but had understood every word I said, and believed it.” Christina Helen Larson, who became William Moroni Palmer’s second wife, lived with her parents, Jonas Olof and Margret Olson Larson and brother John, on a farm near Isanti, Isanti County, Minnesota, not far from St. Francis referred to above. Christina was born at Yttre, Bergsho, Sweden, on April 17, 1862. She came to America with her parents and brother John when she was three years old, and settled on a homestead near Isanti, where a number of other Swedish immigrants had located. President Palmer first referred to the Larson family in his diary on Tuesday, September 20, 1881, where he records: “I went to Isanti to Sister Larson’s and talked a great deal to her husband.” Apparently he stayed at the Larson home for a few days, as on September 23, he recorded: “I held a meeting at Cambridge, Sister Larson’s son and daughter went and we returned after meeting, it being dark as pitch and seven miles. After meeting a mob tried to throw a rope on me but did not make it.” On Sunday, October 9, he held two meetings at Cambridge and states: “After meeting went seven miles to Mr. Larson’s. His wife and daughter are members.” President Palmer recorded on October 15, 1881, that he held a night meeting at Spencer Brook, near St. Francis. A mob disturbed their meeting and as they were leaving, the mob threw rotten eggs at them. He wrote: “As I went out, they threw a volley of rotten eggs at me, 3 of which hit me, one on the back of the head and two on my back,running down my overcoat… We went to Brother E. Clements’ and stayed that night.” Christina cleaned President Palmer’s overcoat, but in telling the story to her children in later years she usually added that at that time she had no idea she would ever be his wife. She was a young country girl of nineteen and he was a distinguished mission president. But Christina’s life pattern changed rapidly in the next two months. She had been a member of the L.D.S. Church for four years, having been baptized on July 26, 1877 and had been a close friend of the S.W. Clements family who, also, were converts to the Church. Like most converts at that time, the Clements family wanted to emigrate to Utah. In the fall of 1881 they sold their property in Minnesota and prepared to make the move west. Christina had often lived with the Clements family to help Mrs. Clements with her work, and felt like some of their family, so she decided to go to Utah with them. The J. Crawford family and Miss Gracie Erickson from the same locality also accompanied them. President Palmer was instructed in a letter from President John Taylor, received November 2, to come home to Utah for the winter and to supervise the emigration of these Minnesota members and others from his mission who were emigrating at that time. The Minnesota Saints left St. Paul, Minnesota, November 10, for Omaha, Nebraska where they met the emigrants from other parts of the mission, and arrived at Ogden, Utah, at 6 a.m., November 16 and at Salt Lake City the same day. Under the date of My 16, 1882, is this diary entry: “Brother Wulffenstijn and I got a horse of Mr. Heath and a buggy of a Mr. Bradford, and came to Isanti to my wife Christina’s father, mother and brothers house. They welcomed me and were very kind to me. My wife’s mother belongs to the Church and is a faithful member, but her father and brother do not, but they all intend to go to Zion as soon as they can sell. On August 6, President Palmer recorded: “I came after dark to my wife Christina’s folks. They welcomed me. They have sold out and will go with me to Utah this fall.” He was released to return home for the winter, and on October 17, 1882, left Omaha for Utah with 49 emigrants. Some of these were from Minnesota, but there is no mention in the diary of Christina’s folks being with them; however the following March 30, when he left again for the mission field ...
