Por Fin!! (FINALLY!!!)
So...after 20 months of working with our lawyer, several trips she made to Tegucigalpa (Honduras capitol), more papers than I can even remember (think buying a house), signing, re-signing - submitting - resubmitting papers - money, money, and more money - we finally got our residency papers today! So what does this mean? It means that we don't have to leave every 90 days to re-new our visas. We don't have to spend lots of money trying to figure out when/where to go. We don't have to work our schedules around when teams are here and when they aren't. It's a HUGE blessing! Now - we just flash our residency papers and we come and go into Honduras whenever we want to - not when we NEED to. This is huge for our ministry, and helps us feel a lot closer to our host country. Thank you God for the patience we had for finishing this process! You will notice Madison's is not pictured here. We went back to the office after she got out of school and the electronic signature machine wasn't working - so we couldn't get her paper - but her process is finalized. We will be going back later this week (prayerfully) to get her paper once the machine works again.
