Micah's parents set up a Skype party for us last night. They had been planning this for a few weeks and we were so excited to talk to our friends and family on the computer. It was Memorial Day in the States, so about 20 people made their way to Bob and Jeanne's for a brunch and a chance to talk to us. Well, wouldn't you know it, a big storm blew through Kaharlyk and 30 minutes before our scheduled chat, the power went out. What a bummer! Micah and I sat in our dark kitchen, just counting the minutes and praying that the power would return. It did not. Although we were very frustrated at the situation, God gave us the opportunity to have some quiet time together, talking, praying, and reconnecting. I am learning to appreciate the power outages because it forces us to focus on each other more and not be distracted by TV or computer. We do hope that we can schedule another Skype party soon.
To all of you who were waiting to talk to us: We are sad that we missed chatting with you! Hopefully it was still a fun time, hanging with good friends and eating good food. If any of you want to Skype us individually, we would love to hear from you! We thank God for your friendship and support!!!
