May 8, 2016-Mother's Day

We didn't know what time he would call on Mother's Day so we spent the day waiting close to our ipads and phones.  We got this message at about 345pm at church.  We breathed a sigh of relief to finally know:

ok thanks im going to call in 1 hour
After talking for about 5 minutes or so, the wifi in his area gave out and we couldn't get him back for anything more than a sentence or two.  But he blurted out that he would call on Monday at 4pm.

May 9, 2016-Second Mother's Day

We were all set at 4pm, and he emailed this:

hey ill call in like 45 mins

That turned into a little over an hour. But he called at about 515 and we had a GREAT visit - for about 30 minutes.  Then the brother of his companion logged into his account, which Caleb was using, and kicked Caleb off.  We were never really able to get back on at that point, so we called it good.  Maybe saying good-bye is overrated!

He sent this after a while of trying to get him back:

thanks love you guys too the thing i was going to say was all of you guys look really old like cammie already looks like a teenager haha no im joking but it is really wierd for me haha but tell them all that i love them and sorry.
The craziest part of these phone calls wasn't even the fact that the wifi wasn't cooperating.  It's that on Sunday night, after we had spoken with him in Babahoyo, he received a call from the office.  He was told to pack up and catch the bus to Ventanas, north of Babahoyo.  He got transferred between phone calls!!!  Never would have expected that!  His new companion is Elder Mecham from Las Vegas.  His first gringo!  Elder Mecham goes home in July. New adventures!
