I have my passport in hand and it has an entry visa for the Dominican Republic inside! PRAISE!
I want to THANK the many many many of you who were praying for me over this situation. While I have been anxiously awaiting the Visa, God has also made it very clear to me that this is HIS timing and HIS plan . I am relieved that we have arrived at this point but can also see how He has used this time to refresh me and use me where I am.
I am currently searching for flights to return to the DR and look forward to easing back into normal life there as soon as possible. Please continue to pray for us as we settle into our Dominican life, as we seek new housing (our landlord wants to build), as we prepare for Fall teams, and as Madi readjusts to life away from her Pennsylvania family and friends. We have been BLESSED by our time here in Lancaster and there are many emotions as we say goodbye to grandparents and family. We also greatly anticipate seeing our Dominican family and friends as well. Sometimes it feels like we are always saying goodbye to one set of family and friends but I also realize we have wonderful “villages” on both sides of the ocean. We are so grateful!
Thank you again for your amazing support and prayers! God has used so many of you to encourage and lift my spirits.
