I don't often get too personal on here, but today I would like to share a prayer request. Many of you know that we finished deputation last summer. It took us a little over two years. Everything was all lined up for us to move to Australia in August. We started looking into visas and was told to go with a specific one. This specific visa would take longer to get, but in the long run the wait was well worth it. It took awhile to get all the paperwork in, our sponser in Australia had to be audited and a few other things. Therefore the visa wasn't sent in to the government until the beginning of December. We have now been waiting for 5 months. I don't mind the waiting so much, its just the wondering why God has us waiting. Is He trying to teach us something? Are we supposed to be doing something? Are we learning what were supposed to be learning? Are we doing what were supposed to be doing? I honestly don't think about it too much, I've learned that it is completely in God's hands and even if I could there is nothing I can do to make the process go quicker, unless, of course, I am not doing what I am supposed to do before the Lord grants us permission to go...see what I mean, if I think about it...I worry. Anyway, I said all that to ask for your prayers regarding our visas. We are waiting on the Lord's timing...we know His ways are best, yet, we want to be on the field so badly that it almost hurts. Please pray that we will be doing what the Lord wants until everything is a go, and that when they are approved, and its time to leave that I won't fall apart because I'm leaving my dad, brothers, other family and friends behind.
