Yesterday we learned from our agency, America World, that our status in the waiting process has moved to "on deck!" This is great news and lines up with what we have been anticipating. While there are no guarantees, our referral should come as early as late November. Once we receive the referral, we will be traveling to Ethiopia for our appearance in court 6-8 weeks later.
With a few key events already planned next semester for our campus ministry, we hope this timeline holds. We would love to be traveling in late January or early February.
With the announcement, we also learned what fees will be due at the time of the referral. Once again, we are amazed at how God has provided just enough. Our fundraising is still on track. There will be another wave due once we begin making travel arrangements.
