Can there... BE any more upsetting way to start a conversation? Talk about setting people up for tension! When you approach people and ask, "Can we talk?" I expect to get balled out for something. It's uncomfortable, but that's not what I'm asking here. I just want to talk with all of you and this is the best way I know of to do it!
We miss our family and friends in "the States" and we truly do want to stay in close contact with all of you. The cell phone plans here have a great international rate with more minutes than we think we'll be able to use, but that's only if we use something besides minutes to talk. We'd like to make use of some Wi-Fi based, free modes of visual contact, so check them out below and let us know if you already have one of these apps! If you don't, consider getting one and let us know so we can be your inaugural call!
We've already been using What's App to talk with my family in the States, Skype from several years ago, and Voxer for those quick contacts where you just want to hear the person's voice! Zoom is also a new-to-me one that YFC uses a lot, and allows you to have multiple people on the same call. I've included links to each page if you want to check them out – and yes, they're all free! It's up to you, but I truly do hope to connect with you all very soon!
Please check the links below for more information or to contact us on one of these free platforms!
Also, let us know if you are using another forum that you really like and works well for you!
* If you want to call us when we're in the States, we're going to try to keep the following numbers:
David – (346) 312-3621
Rebeca – (346) 302-3324
If you'd like to call us once we're back in Romania, feel free to do so anytime after December 5th (2019), but be aware of international rates, the full number, and the manner of reaching us (which I've included below for your ease):
1. 011, U.S. exit code.
2. 40, Romania's country code
3. 761, Then dial the area code
4. 928-915, my number (or Rebeca's, 928-468)
5. 011-40-761-928-915, my full number if dialing from the States
