We are in the final countdown for our Thursday departure. The packing is almost done (see the picture), the purchases are complete (we hope), lots of friends have been visited, and our goodbyes are coming to an end. Now we are turning our attention to what lies ahead. Our upcoming trip is full of uncertainties, but we are thankful that we have a Mighty God who works out all things for His glory. Please pray specifically for:
* Visas: Our resident visas have expired but we have a document from the immigration authorities stating that we have permission to enter the country and renew them once we get into the country. The problem is that this is not the typical paperwork that the airlines are familiar with. This could cause problems in each of the airports that we pass though. Please pray that the paperwork we have will be accepted and that we will be granted passage without major hassles. * Our Car: We are still trying to sell our state-side vehicle. Friends in the area have graciously agreed to help us sell it. Please pray that it sells quickly and painlessly! * Transport: Once we arrive in Mozambique we are still uncertain how we will be getting in and out of the village in July and August. Fortunately we have several offers of help. Pray that God will help us know how to work out the trips that we have ahead of us! * Safe arrivals: We have 8 suitcases and 4 carry-ons! Please pray that everyone and everything arrives safe and sound! Thank you for upholding us in prayer! We will be in close touch and let you know how God works out all these details!
