Brandon shot off a couple of fast emails from the MTC on his last P-day (Preparation Day) there:
I got the box just fine, it actually arrived before the big letter you sent. your other box (second one) should be arrving tomorrow according to the dear elder. for gym, we go to the field across the road because the gym is closed for remodeling. i dont have to pack scrips and pmg everywhere, just to about half of everywhere. we teach eachother and former missionaries here at the mtc. i actually got a new set of sheets a few days after the inital date. plus we do sheet exchanges every tuesday. the jk at the end is for jamaica kingston. and dear elder works just fine for getting it to me. we memorize pretty much what we want to, but eventually, you use some scriptures so much you have it memorized, like the joseph smiths first vision. but i like snail mail too, i prefer returning snail mail because i have more time to write than i do to type. i also think the ups might be faster than the postal system, but what do i know.
