On Wednesday, January 2nd, we'll be returning to the visa office. This time with papers that prove the required income is in our possession. Our home church has graciously taken out a loan for us to show our proof of income to the Austrian government. What a blessing! We are humbled by their love and support. You really couldn't ask for a better sending church. They've done things for us that are above and beyond the call of duty. We are grateful! God knew all along and though we never doubted His will and control on the situation, it makes for some very sleepless nights as humans who have a sin nature and allow worry to set in at times.
Now, we still have to make sure our names are on that list of available visas! If you're confused as to what this is all about you can read the prayer request found here. We'll let you know as soon as we hear something. Please pray for us this week. We covet your prayers.
I'm off to get ready for a small Bible study. It looks like only family today. But the holidays always slow things down when you're trying to get started. The new year will be full of new, surprising, God ordained moments!
I'll leave you with a few pictures of our Christmas time together.
