With many tears and thankful hearts we put our visitors on the plane last night.We treasured every minute. We so wanted to be on that plane with them. The Lord has another plan and we are eagerly waiting for it to unfold. For now we are at a guesthouse that is right next door to the US Embassy. We do not have email access here so our communication may not be as frequent but we will be trying.

We are waiting to be told the next step. Since we heard the initial word that we had received the fingerprint clearance, there has been silence. We have tried repeatedly to get through to the office in Ghana with no success. No one answers the phone. We have written emails and received no response. Our paperwork must get from the Ghana office to the Benin Embassy in order for us to get the visa for Lael. Because we can not get a response from the Ghana office we have no idea what kind of timeframe that we are talking about. There are not words to express the frustration of this situation.

We are so thankful that my mom is here with us. Pray that we will use this time to rest and process what we have experienced this past week. It has been wonderful and so hard. Tears come very easy right now.

Kelly, there are many here in Florida praying for these details to resolve. We have waited almost a decade, and pray that God gives you peace and safety in these last few days.
