4 Apr 2011: Elder Carter and Elder Kjar with the senior missionary couple
who took them to the Jelly Belly Factory.
Early yesterday morning, Jacob and his companion, Elder Kjar, started off their P-day by touring the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, California. Soon after that, Jacob got on the computer to read our family emails and to write home.
He also attached a few photos from their tour of the factory, which I loved. It's fun to see all the pictures he sends home, but it was extra-special to see the ones that had been snapped that same day, just an hour or two earlier. It was almost as good as getting to see him in person. Almost.
Elder Jacob Carter and President Ronald Reagan (made of Jelly Bellies, I assume).
I don't believe these young Elders get to go sight-seeing too much, but once in awhile it is permitted on their P-day. The only other sight-seeing photos Jacob has sent us were from a Buddhist Monastery in Ukiah, California, called City of 10,000 Buddhas, which he visited back in January.
We hope you enjoyed going along on this little tour with us!
