another answered prayer

We're getting word from so many friends and loved ones that are arriving on the field! I was in tears today while reading an email from a friend as they described their new surroundings. God is so good! He gives us love for a people group that we have prayed over for so long...and then that day we finally get to be amongst them and begin to live there! Words can't even describe~~

On Monday of this week, we had been told that all of our paperwork had been lost at the State Department. By all of our paperwork, I mean 6 months of paper acquisition and authentications and sweat and tears and Lots and Lots of $$$$!

After much prayer and many phone calls, all our visa information has been found and is supposedly headed back to us! This is a wonderful answer to our prayers. We plan to drive to DC next week to finalize everything! Have I mentioned that I'M REALLY READY TO BE DONE WITH THE VISA STUFF!?! ;)

Here's another picture that Roger took of the men in my life.
I'm sticking it on here for no good reason other than I just love the expressions on all of their faces!
