That is just a completely foreign concept to me. I realize that huge portions of the world do not have computers in their home. I am aware of that. But these people are middle class, educated, middle age Americans. I really can't think of any reason for them to NOT have a computer.
Maybe I am wrong. Maybe it comes from being raised by a computer programer/pastor/missionary/office manager. I don't remember a time, ever, when there wasn't a computer in my life. I learned how to type when other kids learned how to print!
The whole point of this blog was to talk about my Dad. I realized today that he has been in India for a week, I think, and I haven't even said a word about it on here. He goes every year, and we tend to not make a big deal about it. Same ole, same ole. But I am proud of him. He goes where God sends him. It isn't glamourous. He gets sick almost every year. But he loves the country, and the people, and he desires to serve his Savior. He sent me an E-mail today, just to check in from India. (I think he might have been missing the internet just a little too - I have to have inherited this love of online conversation from someone, right?)
I am glad I was raised by a computer programer/pastor/missionary. We may not always see eye to eye, but I sure am glad to have him. So, if any of you think about it over the next week, say a prayer for my Daddy. Safe travels. Clean water. Peaceful sleep a lot of time zones away from home. And for the love of his Savior to shine out of him with every word, every smile and every breath.
