Oh the wonders of technology!

Last night I was able to talk to my 6 yr. old grandson for the first time since we moved to South Africa. Thanks to the wonderful modern invention of Skype, we were able to call for 2 cents a minute! Doesn't get much better than that! I wish they had Skype so we could do video, but for now, it was awesome!

Trying to explain to a 6 yr. old where Africa is, that it's summer here, that no, Mimi has not seen a wolverine, all that, was so fun! He was wound up & a little silly, but oh how wonderful it was! Unfortunately, Elaena can't really talk much yet at 15 months, but we did get to hear her babble some.

Now, if I could just figure out a way to wrap them in my arms long distance and give them Mimi kisses, I'd be doing great!

Wow. I can't imagine what you are going through with that. Will keep you in my prayers for that one. Just know that they know who you are and they love you and they will be so proud when they are old enough to understand what you are doing for God.

I am hoping to get our webcam working soon. I know Katie would love to be able to chat with Rae once in a while. :) We love you guys!
