We are Homeward Bound and One More BIG Prayer Request
Praise the Lord, we will be leaving for home early tomorrow morning. We will be leaving our "home" at about 3:30 a.m. (or 8:30 p.m. ET today in the U.S.) to head to the airport. I can hardly believe it! The medical appointment and embassy took us pretty much all day, but we got it all done. There is however one small problem with Vika's passport, and that is why we really need your prayers. Since Eliisa has two middle names, they were unable to put both on her passport in this country. They were supposed to write out her full name on another page within the passport, but they failed to do so. So, her immigrant visa and her birth certificate have her full name; however, her passport does not. The officer at the embassy said, this may be a problem when we immigrate into the United States. PLEASE PRAY that there will be NO problems. I know both Eliisa and I will be very worn out by the time we reach immigration after a long day of flying, and there is really nothing that I can do either. Thank you for praying us through this entire journey and praying us home! Your love, encouragement, comments, and prayers mean so much to us, and we could never have made it to this point without you! I am finishing up some last minute packing, and then we will be ready to leave in a few short hours. I will do my best to let everyone know that we made it home! I'm sorry, no pictures today. I did not even take my camera with me today. Here we come!
