Journal Entry #35 – Video conference calls are such a wonderful blessing! The preacher at our sponsoring congregation got the idea to have a video conference call just before services on a Wednesday night and connect the computer to the auditorium projector. He said that when our faces appeared on the screen “live” from Paraguay, that there were gasps, clapping, and tears shed. People were filing into the auditorium and a buzz of excitement was in the air. We were able to say, “Hello” to everyone back home and also see them on our computer screen. A few of our brethren asked us questions and we got to express how much we loved them, appreciated them, and missed them. That call brought a great deal of joy to the brethren of our sponsoring congregation, not to mention, that Andrea and I didn’t stop smiling for two days from the joy it brought us.
