We got our second e-mail from Jared today. He's just finished his second week in the MTC, and has one more to go. He is scheduled to fly to Hawaii on Tuesday, June 28th. So he has just one week left in the MTC.
Here is an excerpt from his letter: "So the MTC... it's going well! And don't worry, there's a letter with some pictures on the way now and more to come! In a very bizarre set of circumstances I met a sister named Andrea going to North Carolina on her mission! She knew Zach Yoshikawa and was in his district here at the MTC. So she gave me a letter that he had written to me and expected us to find each other. Can you guess why? Well Andrea's Grandpa lives in Hawaii! His name in Lyle Brooksby!!!! That's right I met Andrea Brooksby (first cousin once removed?) here at the MTC just in a random hallway, haha!!! Well we got to chat for a little while here and there and she's way nice and we got along together super well! But she's off on her mission now but I just thought it'd be funny to share that with you!"
Who knew that Jared would run into an unknown relative in the MTC of all places. We can't believe that he's been in the MTC for two weeks already, and that he'll leave there in a week. The time seems to be flying by!
