Skype: The Miracle of Free International Calls

The young missionaries have a restriction that they can only call home twice a year; however, couple missionaries have no such restriction. Hey, we have the responsibility to keep track of our seven kids (and their spouses) and our 17 grandkids. We gotta call!

So we just got Skype (go to skype.com for information). We get unlimited, essentially free (except for the low monthly charge of $5.95) calls to land lines and cell phones in the US and Canada through high-speed Internet. Skype is fast and easy to use, and it gives nice, clear, static-free calls. We love it!

It was so great to talk to you last night. I hope that it lifted your spirits because it did ours. We love you very much and miss you even more. We will do a better job at staying in touch.

BTW, we didn't use Skype but Vonage. We recently switched our phone service only and Brent was feeling pretty smart that it only cost us 7cents a minute...I think we can afford my $499,500 house now, right?
