Blog: whirlwind trips to the capital

Whirlwind trips to the capital are always crazy. I’m preparing to make the only right turn before the left turn on the way down. That’s it. Other than those two points, it’s a straight shot to the middle of nowhere.

Lately, it has really felt like that: nowhere. Our group of missionaries is getting smaller as wives keep getting pregnant, terms finish, or a break is just needed. Good thing I can’t get pregnant, my contract is still a year out, and I just had a break (if you call intensive language school a break). Not only is our expand community shrinking (mostly just temporary) but our internet has been declining. Some how, we have hardly been able to iMessage, email or even get the one new story on Facebook.

It’s been rough. So thank you to those of you who have kept me updated on the U.S. joining the rest of the developing world in health care and social reform.

Tigo is our cellular network provider. I don’t know how or why but they have forgot us. I decide to give the other network a try, Airtel. I felt like I was cheating as cut the sim to put into my iPhone but there really wasn’t another option when I need to send 100 megabytes of data everyday.

Whoosh……whoosh……whoosh! All my emails sent! Now this was in Moundou last week but I had to try it out in Bere…

I can now browse Twitter to at least get the highlights at breakfast.

I can see pictures on Facebook!

I can send small attachments!

I even made a Facebook Messenger phone call!

So with that being said my new number is +235 68920884. iMessage works with that number or my zchgtly @ gmail.com address.
