We were able to Skype with Josh on Christmas day! It was the best part of the day! We learned a few things about his mission and heard some funny stories, inspired words and mainly just enjoyed conversing with him! We found out that the members do the laundry for the missionaries! What is up with that? Why would they do that? We heard about his new area which is very wealthy and flat compared to his poor and hilly last area. He is excited to be there and he told us that he gets to go to the Rose Parade on Thursday. What a fun thing! We talked and laughed and cried (only a few of us). What a great blessing technology is! It was wonderful to see him looking so happy and healthy and excited about serving a mission. A true blessing for his mom and dad.
