Heather now has a cell phone!!! We were able to call her yesterday morning (afternoon for her.) What a relief to know that we can now communicate with her more frequently. Don’t get me wrong, it is still important to send mail but to know that we can call and hear her voice and just check to make sure she is doing well is awesome. We all talked to including Jason who lives in Moorhead. Because it is cheaper for us to call her using an internet service such as Skype or Stanacard we will usually be the ones calling or she will call us quick and then we will call her back. She would love to hear from her friends so if anyone is interested, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you the information as to the best ways to call and her phone number.
Thank you all for your continued support and friendship for Heather as she takes this journey to help the people of Niger.
