Unbelievably good news

I cannot believe this!! I 'ran away' this evening (meaning I took some time to go to Twin, eat a salad and tea, journal, do some Bible reading, study my Sunday School lesson, pray, eat ice cream, get a few grocery items ALL BY MYSELF) As I was driving back through town after 9:00 p.m. I decided to stop at our mailbox and could not believe my eyes: our I-171H was in there. Remember the USCIS had just received our home study on Wednesday--as in 3 days ago!!

I did find out from our stateside facilitator today that we need to change about 3 words on our home study for our Eastern European country's requirements. I'm hoping that can be done like Monday, overnighted to Boise and quickly back to us.

All you people who are praying for this process to start moving more quickly--Thank You! God is listening. Please pray that we don't have any hold-ups with the home study changes and that we quickly get our document from Virginia.

Almost there!! We're coming, sweetie!! Thank you, Lord!
