We get a chance to actually 'talk' with our missionary twice a year: Christmas Day and Mother's Day. Today was one of those days! Thanks to a cool Christmas present from my wife, and the wonders of Skype and the worldwide web, we were able to have an hour-long video call with him this afternoon.
First of all, in response to his mother, grandma and aunts' concerns: he is looking well. He looks well fed, healthy and like he is taking care of himself!
He had lots of stories about local cuisinie, and great stories about the people he has been meeting and getting to know. His companion, Elder Bell, is from Provo, Utah.
We were able to swap lots of stories, catch up on family near and far. Most importantly, we got to see him and he could see us.
Things are good. He's working hard and momma's happy!
Merry Christmas to all and to all, a good night!
