Epic Day in Missionary History

Today was Mother's Day in the U.S., which means lots of love for the mothers in our lives and, for thousands of LDS families, missionary phone calls!  The Hill family initiated possibly the most epic missionary phone call in the whole history of the world.  Thanks to the brand new Skype 5.0, video conferencing is now available for free (or at least mostly free - 7 day trial required) to family computers all across the world.  We enjoyed our 4-way video conference call tonight from 11:30 pm to 1:30 am my time.  There were seven on couches in the Provo Hill basement, Jordan in Oscada, Michigan, David in Tempe, Arizona and me in Cambridge, England.  Granted, my view wasn't quite as cool as that broadcasted over the massive family room TV screen in Utah, but it was a happy sight nonetheless:

Fixed and Happy!

I love you so much Mom, for all you do, for the advice and counsel you give and for the way of life you have taught me.  And I love you too, bro, for all your love and faith, both for and in God and for the people you serve every day.  May Michigan listen to the message of joy and peace you bring, that they, too, can look forward to being reunited with their families in God's kingdom forever.
