prayer from the cell: unlimited?

After the first month my daughter got her cell phone we got a bill for hundreds of dollars. I called to find out why. Well... her "unlimited texting" was capped at 2,500 and she'd texted over 6,000!

prayer from the cell: claims

What an amazing day yesterday. I posted that I was giving away a free download of my cartoon book, nakedpastor 101, and hundreds of copies were downloaded. I didn't expect that.
