Week 7 - Jujuy - Mother's Day Skype

[June 23 - We are over a month behind on posting Alec's letters . . . so we will go back to May when we were able to skype with him on Mother's Day].

It wasn't until about 5 pm when we were able to Skype with Alec. It was a really bad connection:  bad audio and jumpy, blury video.  We tried several times to get it to work, and then decided to wait about 30 minutes to try again.  We actually had two of the elders serving in our ward at our house upstairs talking with their families and thought maybe that was causing the problem, but apparently not..

Third time it worked a lot better but was only able to talk about 30 minutes right about the time he was bearing his testimony in Spanish and then the audio and video went bad again.

It was so good talking with him. He is doing well and looks good [sorry we didn't get a picture while we were talking].  He seems more confident than he did in December.  His Spanish seems better . . . as he would be talking in English and then all of a sudden be talking in Spanish.
