Skype Rocks

We discovered the coolest thing ever today! We learned about and now have a Skype account! If you don't know what Skype is, I didn't either until today. It is a computer program that allows you to see the person you are talking to over the Internet! Jason bought us a new laptop today with a built in web cam. The reason for all of this is because Jason's brother, Jeffrey is doing an amazing thing. He will be leaving for Africa on October 16 to work with youth over there and spread the Word of our amazing God! We are so proud of Jeffrey and know that his 2 years away from us will be a life changing experience for him. However, the not seeing him for 2 years is a bit hard for us to swallow. So, with this fabulous new technology we will be able to see him in Africa and talk to him over the computer any time we want. It is just like talking the phone but you can see the person. It is the coolest thing ever! I am so excited about this program not only so we can see him but so McKenzie can see her wonderful uncle and know him when he returns. It will be so nice to be able to see him over the next 2 years. It has definitely made Jason feel much better. He is very close to Jeffrey but knows what he is doing is part of God's plan for his life. Africa is just a long ways away! Please pray for Jeffrey and our family as he prepares to leave home as he knows it and move to Africa to work for the Journeyman Program. The people of Africa will never be the same after Jeffrey gets a hold of them!

Please let us know how this works. We have the web cam but have never used it because we do not know how.

I am also so excited about Skype and being able to see you when I am in Africa. For good or bad, Africa will definitely not be the same after I invade it. I love y'all and will see you very soon!
