Let me give you a nice “Holy Land laugh!” When Tod and I arrived (with Micah and Steve Allen), our phones were not working because of a new ruling about foreigners’ telephone accounts in Israel. So we had to wait to get new SIM cards for the phones. As a result we could not get in touch with friends, nor they with us.

On the day I got my phone updated, I sent out a short email to let some of our friends know that we were in the country for a few days. The note I thought I wrote was very simple. “Tod and I in the country until Saturday. We had to get new numbers. Mine is …; his is….” Just as I pushed the send button, I noticed that Spell Check had changed “Tod” to “God,” reading “God and I in the country until Saturday. We had to get new numbers. Mine is…” It was late at night and I had blind-copied everyone; I could not even remember who all I sent it to so I simply thought, “Oh, well,” and laughed myself to sleep, in anticipation of the emails I would get the next day!

From John and Una Gere: Wow! Can we give out God’s phone number to anyone, or is private!!!!! I remember His old number was JER333 (call unto Me and I will answer thee…..)

Gabriel Leonhard: I’m so glad that you brought God with you! ūüôā and Micah

Shira Sorko-Ram: Dear Don, I have ALWAYS wanted God’s direct line! Thanks for His and for yours!

Israel Pochtar: Wow… amazing to hear you’re here in the land with God! How did you get his personal number? ūüôā

Have a blessed day! And laugh a little!
