We are in the process of applying for new 5-year "permanent" resident visas, which are required by the country since our one-year temporary visas have been renewed 5 times. The process is continuing forward (a good thing) slowly but smoothly... We heard last night that they requested just over $10,000 to finish up the paperwork at this current stage of processing... other monies have been charged already, and more will be requested when the papers return to our area of the country from the capital.
We came to this country feeling God's clear leading, and we need this visa to continue serving here - there is no way around it. I was reminded of this quote earlier, and I'm so thankful for it... "The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you." Soooooooo......... I'm choosing to trust today and be thankful that He is able and WILL provide for this necessary part of our being here. Looking forward to seeing Him work!
