Thank you for your prayers! We received our visas today which was WAY before we thought we would receive them. We are grateful to have this worry off our mind. God is indeed taking care of us each step of the way.

28 Day Countdown!

We want to ask for your continued prayer as we gear up to leave 28 days from now! We have shipped 14 boxes of what we deemed "necessities" which mostly included heavy winter clothes, our favorite books, a few pictures, and kitchen essentials (it is amazing how kitchen essentials can be reduced to a sharp knife, a cutting board, and a good pot).

Earlier this month we finished the final step of the visa application process - fingerprinting. We had a slight scare, because on the day of our biometrix appointment, Jordan injured his thumb while working at Starbucks. The swelling and the band-aide imprint made his thumb-print almost unrecognizable, but after several attempts, they were able to obtain his thumb-print. We praise God for this, because a delay in this final step could have jeopardized us getting our visas on-time. However, we STILL need prayer that we receive our visas on time! We expect to receive them a week before we are scheduled to leave, but any delay could throw that timing off thus hindering our ability to leave as scheduled.

I am still waiting to hear if my company will allow me to keep my job while we live in Scotland. Not knowing is a heavy weight as we feel the uncertainty of what we need to live on. Please pray that we will embody Luke 12:22-34 trusting that our Father will provide for our needs.

We intend to begin posting more regularly, so check back in to follow us on our journey.
