In order to write Ben for free while he is in the missionary training center (MTC) see where it says "Write Me" you click on "Dear Elder" That will take you to a website where you can write to Ben. If you get it in before noon, he will receive it the same day. You will need to put in Ben's name: Elder Benjamin Rees Layton and where he is going -- Nevada Las Vegas West Mission --- we do not have his post office box number yet but it will get there without it. The day he will leave the MTC is August 23. I will post his box number as soon as he gives it to me by email sometime this week or next. Please send him mail. If you have any questions on how to do this please call me 573-634-2920

It's the day!

Well, its the day I go into the MTC today. I am about to hop on a plane to fly to Provo. I hear the first weekend is the hardest, so I'll have to work hard. Fortunately, I have friends in there with me. See you soon Christian Kesler.
