We got Jared's first letter today....He wants more mail! I've put a page on this blog (link is on the right) that gives you ways to contact him. One of the easiest ways is through dearelder.com.
Dearelder.com is a marvelous website. 1) It's really easy to use. 2) Letters get there really quickly. 3) IT'S FREE!!! In order to use it, click on the site and then click on "Provo MTC (Free!)", located on the left-hand side of the screen. Then type in your address. Next type in Jared's information. He is "Elder" (under 'title'), MTC Mailbox #304, "ARM-YER 0808" under 'mission code'. We put his estimated departure date as 8/25/11 because we haven't heard anything else. You then have to enter your email address at the bottom. Then you can write him a letter at the bottom of the screen. If you mail the letter in the morning before 12:00 p.m, he gets it the same day! Cool, huh? I don't think this works on the weekends or holidays, though. But the best part is that this doesn't cost you anything. He will then get an actual letter, not just an email. Great site!
So if you have any time at all, he could really use a letter. It really makes his day! The language is tough for him but with encouragement I know he will do an amazing job! Thanks for your support!
