Bret reported to the MTC January 21 at 12:00 p.m. Our family had the usual photo shoots in front of the Missionary Training Center sign. His immediate family was all present, even Brooke who flew in from California. Bret was given his name tag with a green "dork spot" as Clint called it. He will get to wear the green spot until the next week's Elders report in. This indicates he doesn't know anything yet and needs special attention. After a week he reportedly gets to remove his green spot and blend in with the other Elders.
If you want to write Bret, here's his address for the next few weeks:
ELDER BRET CHRISTOPHER HANSEN
MTC Mailbox #270
2005 N 900 E.
Provo UT 84604-1793
We'll post some pictures shortly. If you post messages, I will copy/paste them in our family's emails to him.
