We received all of our paperwork today and spent several hours filling out visa applications (2 per person in our family). We have everything in order and have purchased our airline tickets for Miami. We leave out from here on Monday, January 15 and plan to be at the consulate first thing Tuesday morning to file. We come back late Tuesday night.
Please pray for our safe travel, for the kids as we are away, for whoever keeps them, and for us to find favor with the people at the consulate. We pray that the Lord goes before us and prepares the way.
