Texting – from Mozambique

The technology that we have in this world is really just phenomenal – hard to comprehend actually.  Rachel sent me about 7 text messages today.  Including about 5 in the last 15 minutes (she didn’t think they were going through!).  Basically, she asked me to call her.  So I texted her back, saying that I didn’t have a calling card number.  In less than 2 minutes, she had replied to me, giving me her card number.  Two minutes!  That’s for my message to get to Mozambique, Rachel to type in a bunch of numbers, and come back to me.  Maputo is 8325 miles away (10,006 miles for you Anchorage people)!  We only talked for about 4 minutes but she sounded good.  Tired but good.  She was holding a baby while we were talking!
