There are many things that go into moving to a remote location that you may never think about. I have one word for you: TEETH! Yes, for the last several months or so, Tom and I have been traveling over an hour (one way) to go the the dental school to get much needed work done on our teeth. It’s been well… a long time since we have been able to get our pearly whites checked over so now our mouths are undergoing a much needed overhaul! Thankfully, by going to the dental school we are saving a lot of money and as usual God is faithfully providing for it.
We both have about five more visits to go until we are done and we are looking forward to that! As I type this out, there is a dull throbbing in my lower right molar where I got a filling today. As scary at it is, thank you Lord for dentistry!
Now for a big announcement for which we are praising the Lord: We have been approved for our work permits for Papua New Guinea! WAHOO! In case you do not know-this is a huge answer to prayer and brings us one step closer to being able to buy our plane tickets. The LAST thing left to get is our Entry Permits (Visas)! We are mailing our Entry Permit application in tomorrow since we had to wait until we had our work permits were approved! It is a bit complicated to explain, but the fact that we got approved for the work permits is almost miraculous considering some glitches that happened with the paper work we had mailed in. Anyway, this is great news! God is watching over our plans and allowing things to progress in His timing.
Please continue to pray for our Entry Permit’s to get approved really quickly so that we can buy our plane tickets and meet our goal of leaving in 40 days. No matter what happens we are trusting in God’s perfect timing in this! Thank you so much for your prayers!
