God did it!!! We have reached our monthly support goal. Thanks to every one of you who has made this possible. But this is not all the good news.
I also received word that my work permit has been approved and our visa paperwork has been given to the visa office in Port Moresby (the capitol of Papua New Guinea). I also got the okay to go ahead and send our passports and duplicate visa paperwork in to the PNG embassy in Washington, DC. Once the visas are approved in PNG they will put the actual visas in our passports in Washington and return them to us. But that is not all either.
We also received another donation toward our plane tickets. We now only need $4500 before we can purchase our tickets. Would you like to help get us back to our work in PNG?

Please continue to pray that our visas are processed quickly and that the last bit of money for our plane tickets comes in soon. We have also begun the process of sorting through and collecting things to be shipped back to PNG for the next three years. Please pray for wisdom and strength as we go through this process.
Thank you again and keep praying!!!
