Our Visa's Have Been Approved!
We have officially been allowed into the country! Everything went well during the application process and the cost of the visas were not as much as we thought they were going to be. God truly blessed! We have 12 weeks left until our departure. With so many things to accomplish before we leave, and with the holidays upon us, those 12 weeks are going to fly by!
Michael and I leave in 6 days for a week trip to Portugal. We hope to secure housing during this time. As that will help reduce the amount of "shock" we will experience when we return to stay. The thought of looking for a house in a foreign land with all the kids, sounds overwhelming, and something I don't really want to do. So, please help us pray that God will open that door soon after our arrival so that we can get that part out of the way and use the remainder of our trip for other business. We hope to have time to shop for large appliances and household items while there, so that we will have a better idea about the mount of money we will need to set up house keeping. There isn't any use trying to ship what we already have as nothing will be usable there.
We hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and realized the blessings the Lord has bestowed on each of us.
