Connecting

As I thought about what I wanted to write for this first Thankful Thursday post I couldn’t help but think about what a blessing the Internet can be, along with Facebook, instant messenger, and Skype. When we first arrived in Kenya in 1995 we had none of those things. We truly felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. It was a lonely feeling not being able to connect with family, church, and friends.

During our second term Internet became available – dial-up, but Internet none-the-less. However, even then there wasn’t Facebook or blogs to connect with the daily lives of people, let alone missionary ladies! What a blessing to now be able to read blogs of women who can relate with our lives, and look on Facebook and find a group of Baptist Missionary Women who we can ask for prayer about issues that others may not fully understand. So here is a big PRAISE THE LORD for being able to have access to Internet, and ways to stay charged to continue doing the work he has called us to do around the world!

I very much so agree! We have not had stable internet at all much less high speed until this last summer so I am very thankful for the blessing it is to be able to stay in touch with friends and family around the world!

Amen! And my husband just found a more stable, faster internet before he left, so it we will be able to use skype when we get back home!
