New Cell Phones!

Kyle and I just recently got new cells phone. His was on its last leg, sometimes not allowing him to hear people or people to hear him. Fickle little thing. Mine was still doing alright though I got it a few months before Kyle got his new phone (mine-12/04). We went to one of the local AT&T shops and saw a few phones that we liked, especially one that was going to be $79.99 after a mail in rebate (no, thank you). Instead, I decided to look around on the AT&T website to try and catch some web only deals. Kyle and I decided that we weren't going to be able to find those phones that we particularly liked without paying a little bit so we decided we would get them after our vacation in May and then count that as our birthday presents. BUT...the story doesn't end there.

I received an email from Amazon about some random product (don't remember what it was now) and a link on the page caught my eye: cell phones for $.01. I checked it out and they had the phones that Kyle and I wanted to get...for $.01 each! We ordered them on Friday and they were on our front porch on Monday, brand new and as promised and only for $.02 total. I was pretty excited to say the least. The phones are Sony Ericsson's Walkman W580i and have 2.0 Megapixel cameras, FM radio, the ability to synchronize with our calendars, contacts, notes, tasks, etc. on our computers, and serve as MP3 players. Kyle's phone (the white one) came with a small 256 MB M2 Micro Memory Stick but mine (the gray one) did not. So far, that's my only complaint. I've ordered a memory stick (4 GB) for mine so it'll be ready to go in a few days. Exciting times. If you need our new numbers, email me or call me quickly on my old phone before I shut it down.

And a forewarning...once I get the memory card all situated and ready to go, I might be able to do some video blogging. How exciting!

Another Helpful Tool For Spiritual Growth

I blogged a while ago about BibleMemory.us that sends emails with a link so you can practice Scripture memorization (it has since been modified and you can choose which verses are sent to you and personalize some other things). I've just found another neat little tool: Echo Prayer. It's a online resource where you can input prayer requests and then they'll send you email or text updates at specified times to pray for random or specific prayers. Seems pretty simple, straight forward, and useful. It also has options to add journal notes about prayers and mark that the prayer has been answered. I just started using it today and it will send me specific updates to pray for Uncle Bill.

Spring Break with (part of) the Family

I decided on a slideshow this time instead of a montage. The slideshows don't have sizing options like the montages do so it doesn't fit exactly. Sorry! Enjoy!

Evermazing Race, DNow 08

Just a random montage of Evermazing Race videos from March. I didn't get to take as many good photos as I would have liked. Sorry!

An unexpected opportunity to minister

I saw this clip on a friend's blog and was encouraged by it so much that I posted it here. This should remind us that seemingly bad situations can be the perfect opportunity to share. Just watch.
