We called Elder Andrew this afternoon at 4pm. It was 9am in Japan. We had a whole hour to talk before he had to get off the phone so that his companion's family could call.
Steve spent $20 this morning on an international phone card. The thing is good for about 360 minutes. We figure that will pretty much last us his entire mission. He seems to be doing fine. You heard me. Fine. He does want a new camera - a smaller one. I asked him if that's what he wants us to get him for his birthday - he said he'd buy it there. Duh. Smaller camera... Japan....hmm...do you think he could find one there?
