We got our first letter from Jared while he's in the MTC. One week down, two more to go before he flies to Hawaii.
Here is an excerpt from his letter: "I did indeed make it here! I'm safely moved in and happy here at the Missionary Training center. Today is P-Day and I'm sooooo happy that i actually get a break from sitting in class for 6 hours a day haha. I would rather have college classes right now than sitting in a cramped room with no AC at all. But such is life here at the MTC! We are a district of 10 missionaries all going to Hawaii and we are all having a lot of spiritual growth here, as is the point I believe. I love the Elders in my district. And I love my companion, Elder Small. We work together well. I'm learning patience and I'm learning to love everyone."
It was so good to hear from him!
