Update on Visas!

Thanks for all the prayers folks! God has answered and we now have been able to arrange with the immigration department head to proccess our initial visas (the ones we need by thursday) HIMSELF!!! So that means we no longer need to go to Zimbabwe. This is a huge blessing because our paperwork has not yet arrived from the Canadian Embassy in Maputo. So hopefully we can still get our paperwork by the end of this week. Please continue to pray that the paperwork will come in this week, and we can apply for our DIRES (residency visas) as soon as possible. It will still be tight to get them in time for us to leave for South Africa, so that is still a prayer request as well. (we cant leave the country without them!) Also, our poor truck is in need of prayer- today the air conditioning quit, and the front end is making interesting noises... we know first hand how God can keep a vehicle running on little else but faith (for example our ancient cavalier at home!), so please join us in praying that it will make it to South Africa and the mechanics that await us there! We know so many of you are praying, and we are constantly blessed by that. We have a busy few weeks ahead of us.. as our VBS starts this coming monday, and we are madly preparing for that as well! Ill try and upload photos soon, but thought i would get this update up for the time being! God Bless, Rick and Heather
