Jared Leaves for Johannesburg

Here is a collage of Jared's dinner with family and friends the night before he left for Africa. Jared finished packing at 1:00 a.m., then slept 3 1/2 hours, then up to get ready and off we go to the airport at 5:30 a.m. What an emotional time to send him off for 2 years. (for the parents - Jared was excited and so ready to go) He sent an email we received the next day at noon (which was about 9:00 S. Africa time) to say the streets of Johannesburg are flooded, the MTC has great food and great leaders, and he has a companion from Zimbabwe. A business woman at the airport commented on what a wonderful service such a young man was giving. His motto is "Doubt not, fear not." (D&C 6:36)
