We got a letter from Jared's mission president John C. Dalton letting us know that he'd arrived. He said that weekly encouragement from home will certainly help inspire greater missionary effort. He said to send mail USPS. If we choose to send things FedEx, DHL, or UPS they collect the fee to forward the packages from the missionary. So we won't be doing any of those. Just a note - when you send things USPS it is the same cost as within the continental US. I thought that was great. It was good to see a picture of Jared and see how happy he looks.
Sadly yesterday was Jared's P-day and we didn't get an e-mail. Maybe he'll send one today, or we might have to wait until next week. So we still don't have his actual address yet. Maybe when he doesn't get anything but e-mails he'll realize it's because we don't have his address.
